This event has now passed: thank you to all who attended PaCSS 2020!

We are pleased to announce a joint virtual conference combining the annual Politics and Computational Social Science (PaCSS) and Political Networks (PolNet) conferences into one shared event to take place online during August 10-14. The conference will consist of a series of modular, daily sessions taking place between 11 am – 2:30 pm EDT. Sessions will include a mix of panels, mentoring groups, and semi-structured networking.

In light of the many personal and professional impacts felt by members of our community, PaCSS/PolNet 2020 will have an explicit focus on supporting the scholarly development of junior computational social scientists and will also create space for knowledge and resource sharing around COVID-19 and the long-term impacts of racial disparities. We hope that you will join us to share your work and support the continued growth of our diverse, interdisciplinary community.

The joint PaCSS/PolNet conference is using a shared submission process. To submit your work for consideration for a panel, please complete this form by Friday, July 10, 2020.

If you are willing to serve as a mentor, discussant, or in another role supporting the scholarly development of junior computational social scientists, please complete this form by Friday, July 10, 2020.
