Koret-Taube Conference Center

The Conference onComputational Sociology  will be held on August 7th, 2020, at Stanford University, a day before the American Sociological Association (ASA) Annual Meeting convenes in San Francisco. The conference will showcase work that applies computational methods to important sociological problems. We welcome submissions that use data creatively, whether applying machine learning methods, analyzing text, images, or network structures, or any other form of computational analysis.

Submit your poster and paper! 

The conference will showcase accepted posters and papers

Paper guidelines: We ask you follow the same format as ASA journals and submit as Word document or PDF. Papers posted on pre-publication archives are eligible for consideration at the conference. 

Poster guideline: We will review abstracts (< 2000 characters).

The deadline for submissions is April 1, 2020; acceptances will be announced by May 1, 2020. Accepted papers will be asked to present at the conference. Accepted posters will be asked to present 1 minute lightning talks (1 ppt slide) and to display a standard sized poster.

Update​Due to COVID-19 we are extending the submission deadline for papers and posters to May 15. Also, in so long as there is an ASA conference, there will be a Computational Sociology conference. If ASA is canceled or moved online, then we will move the Computational Sociology conference to a Zoom webinar.

Submit your paper or poster!
