The International Society for Computational Social Science

Advancing data-driven research in the social sciences


IC²S² 2022


JULY 19 – 22

UPCOMING: 8th International Conference on Computational Social Science

University of Chicago

IC²S² is the premier annual meeting bringing together researchers from different disciplines interested in using computational and data-intensive methods to address societally relevant problems. After going virtual during the pandemic, ISCSS is excited to reconvene the CSS community in person at the University of Chicago in 2022.

Applying computational methods to social science

Computational social science is an exciting new field which uses methods and tools from computer science to solve societally relevant problems. It draws inspiration from the experimental, social, and behavioral sciences, merging their explanatory focus with the predictive capabilities of large-scale data. This integrative approach, combined with the creation of a robust research infrastucture, allows computational social scientists to pursue replicable, cumulative, and ultimately useful solutions.
