The 7th International Workshop on Application of Big Data for Computational Social Science (ABCSS2022 @ WI-IAT 2022)

WI-IAT 2022 Workshop

The 7th International Workshop on Application of Big Data for Computational Social Science (ABCSS2022)

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.


November 17-20, 2022. (Niagara Falls, Canada)
In conjunction with the 21st IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology (WI-IAT ’22)
Our workshop will be held on November 17.


  • 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


The 6 papers will be presented in our workshop were carefully reviewed and selected.
