Interested in sponsoring one of the world's premier computational social science research conferences?

The 12th annual International Conference on Web and Social Media (AAAI ICWSM) will be held in June 2018 at Stanford University. ICWSM is one of the world's premier conferences and publication venues in computational social science. From election interference to online harassment to increasingly social AI systems, the past year has highlighted the critical importance of computational social science for the success of the world's largest online platforms. Through its location in the heart of Silicon Valley, this year's ICWSM conference will feature a rigorous dialogue about urgent and high-stakes computational social science challenges at the intersection of industry and academia.

Over the past 12 years, ICWSM has emerged as a unique forum bringing together researchers working at the nexus of computer science and the social sciences, with work drawing upon network science, machine learning, human-computer interaction, psychology, sociology, political science, economics, statistics, multimedia, and communication.

Your participation in the ICWSM 2018 Sponsor Program will give your company instant visibility and access to this diverse group of researchers, students, and professionals. This year we are expecting even greater participation and involvement at the conference. This will give your company access to recruiting opportunities and high-level sponsors will be able to set up recruiting and/or demo booths during the conference. ICWSM-18 is sponsored by the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI).
