> We invite participants to the inaugural workshop on Computational and Online Social Science (CAOSS), to be held Friday, October 12, 2012 at Columbia University. Details at:
>     http://caossnyc.org
> With an explosion of data on every aspect of our everyday existence -- from what we buy, to where we travel, to who we know -- we are able to observe human behavior with granularity largely thought impossible just a decade ago. The growth of such online activity has further facilitated the design of web-based experiments, enhancing both the scale and efficiency of traditional methods. Together these advances have created an unprecedented opportunity to address longstanding questions in the social sciences, ranging from sociology to political science to economics and beyond. The inaugural 2012 workshop on Computational and Online Social Science (CAOSS) aims to bring together diverse research communities that work at the intersection of computer science and social sciences to build a lasting foundation for this emerging discipline.
> The program features invited speakers Sinan Aral (NYU), David Jensen (UMass), Jure Leskovec (Stanford), David Reiley (Google), and Duncan Watts (Microsoft).
> Call for Participation. As space is limited, we ask that you please complete the free registration form at http://caossnyc.org/registration if you plan to attend. 
> Additionally, if you would like to present your work as a short talk or poster, please submit an abstract when registering. Submissions will be accepted through September 14th and funding is available for student presenters. 
> We encourage you to pass this information on to others who may be interested. Please contact us at admin at caossnyc.org if you have any additional questions.
> CAOSS is made possible by the genererous support of Microsoft Research, eBay Research, Facebook, Google, the Applied Statistics Center at Columbia University, ACM SIGecom, and Johnson Research Lab.
> We hope to see you at the workshop!
> David, Jake, Sergei, and Sharad
