IEEE BigData 2024 Workshop

The 9th International Workshop on Application of Big Data for Computational Social Science (ABCSS2024)

Despite the progress of traditional social science, modern social science is facing a serious paradigm shift due to the development of computer and Internet technologies. Human behavior and social phenomena is possible to be quantified by big data digitally tracing online activities and mobility records at a granular level. In some cases, big data can be analyzed using technologies evolving in the natural sciences, such as physics, chemistry, and biology. Experimental data and multiple results from theoretical and computational simulations complement them. Both theoretically and analytically grounded insights may open new doors of computational social sciences. From this perspective, we hold a series of annual workshops on application of big data for computational social science for several years. The scope of the workshop includes, but is not limited to, big data applications, big data collection and use, an integrated framework for theory, simulation, statistics, and experiments.
