The 2019 Data Science & Social Research Conference (DSSR) will take place on February 4th and February 5th 2019 at the University of Milano-Bicocca and IULM University respectively.
The goal of the conference is to stimulate the debate among scholars of different disciplines about the so called “data revolution” in social research.
The Data Science and Social Research international conference encourages contributions about:
- new methodological developments to extract social knowledge from large scale datasets;
- new social research about human behaviour and society with large datasets, either mined from various sources (e.g. social media, video games, communication systems) or created through controlled experiments;
- integrated systems to take advantage of new social and game data sources;
- big data quality issues, both as reformulation of traditional representativeness and validity and as emerging quality aspects such as access constraints, which may produce inequalities.
Scholars working in the fields of Digital Humanities and Game Studies are especially encouraged to submit a paper on themes such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, data mining, data visualization of game practices, ethical challenges posed by new technologies, data, algorithms, platforms, and more.
IULM University will host a special panel on digital games.
