Computational Social Science and the Wisdom of Crowds

Computational social science is an emerging academic research area at the intersection of computer science, statistics, and the social sciences, in which quantitative methods and computational tools are used to identify and answer social science questions. The second Workshop on “Computational Social Science and the Wisdom of Crowds” will be held at NIPS 2011, on December 17th in Sierra Nevada, Spain. Computer scientists, psychologists, economists, and other social scientists who do research on AMT (using it as a research setting or as a tool) should definitely consider submitting a paper. See last year’s contributions for getting an idea of what you may find in Sierra Nevada (besides this).

Papers must be submitted by October 7th, 2011. The call for papers and other details about the workshop are available here.
