Meeting Description:

The aim of this NSF-sponsored conference on e-Social Science is to bring
together international representatives of the social science and
cyberinfrastructure research communities in order to create better mutual
awareness, harmonize understanding, and instigate coordinated activities to
accelerate research, development, and deployment of cyberinfrastructure to
support the social science research community.

Dear Colleague:

We would like to invite your department's graduate students to attend a doctoral
colloquium to be held at the third International Conference on e-Social Science
http://ess.si.umich.edu,
funded by the National Science Foundation (US) and the Economic and Social
Research Council (UK). A preliminary description of the colloquium, to be held
Saturday, October 6 and Sunday, October 7 in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and a
description of the application process is available at
http://ess.si.umich.edu/doctoral.htm.

Briefly, the aim of the colloquium is to:
- Build a cohort group of new researchers who will then have a network of
colleagues spread out across the world.
- Guide the work of the new researchers by having experts in e-social science
give advice.
- Provide encouragement and support for the selection of e-social science
research topics.
- Make it possible for promising new entrants in the field to attend the Conference.
- Illustrate the interrelationship and diversity of the field of e-social science.
- Make the new entrants' experience at the Conference an enjoyable and rewarding
experience, encouraging them to return and submit papers, panels, posters, etc.
to future conferences.

We will consider submissions on any theme in cyberinfrastructure applied to the
Social Sciences -- examples include:
- Collaboration (e.g. the confidentiality issues associated with datasharing;
ethics)
- Visualisation (e.g. visualization of large scale data and image manipulation)
- High Performance Computation (e.g. grid enabled statistical analysis)
- Modeling & Simulation (e.g. agent-based modeling)

Attendance will be restricted to 15 students. We will structure the colloquium
to have three or four sessions, the themes of which will depend on the nature
and balance of the submissions from the students. Each session will feature an
address from a senior researcher in the field, a discussion by one or both of
the co-chairs of the colloquium, and general discussion amongst participants.

Please circulate this call as widely as possible. Please note that the deadline
is May 30, 2007 and we aim to notify successful applicants before the end of
June. Please do not hesitate to contact either of the co-chairs should you have
any questions.
