The International Conference on Computational Social Science (IC²S²) is the premier conference bringing together researchers from different disciplines interested in using computational and data-intensive methods to solve societally relevant problems.

- IC²S² 2020: Boston, United States
IC²S² typically takes place in June or July, starting with one day of tutorials on topics related to computational social science, followed by three conference days. There tend to be many (around twelve) invited keynote speakers, as well as contributed oral presentations in parallel tracks and poster tracks. In addition, during the conference there are sometimes panels on particular topics as well as sattelite events such as datathons, job fairs and warmup activities for young scholars.
Calls for two page extended abstracts are typically published in October, with a submission deadline near the end of January. Based on the quality of the contribution, the abstract, if accepted, is presented as an oral presentation or poster. This process is lead by a number of program chairs, who make their selection based on reviews done by the conference program committee. Tutorials are selected by one or more tutorial chairs based on tutorial proposals.
