IEEE BigData2017 Workshop
The 2nd International Workshop on Application of Big Data for Computational
Social Science 2017
Dec. 11-14, 2017
Boston, MA, USA

SUBMISSIONS DUE: Sep. 30, 2017

Contemporary social sciences are facing a serious paradigm shift because of
the developments in computer and Internet technologies, though traditional
social sciences are still very important. Big data, such as digital traces
of online activities and mobility records, allows us to quantify human
behavior and social phenomena at a fine-grained level, yet it is global in
scale, thereby complementing experimental data and theoretical and
computational simulation results. In some cases, we can even employ the
methods of natural sciences, including physics, chemistry or biology, in
order to analyze big data. From this perspective, we will organize the
workshop of “applications of big data for computational social science.”


- Application of sociology/sociophysics using big data
- Application of econometric/econophysics using big data
- Social media data analyses from economic/political/social perspective
- Informatics using social big data
- Marketing science using social big data
- Business analytics using big data on consumer behavior
- Culturomics and art management
- Analysis of reputation of entertainment using big data
