(ONLINE)The 3th Symposium on the Quantitative Analysis of Textual Data

The Third International and Interdisciplinary Conference on the Quantitative and Computational Analysis of Textual Data will be held in Innsbruck, Austria, on 15-16 May 2020.

COMPTEXT is an international community of quantitative text analysis scholars in political science, international relations and beyond. COMPTEXT is a legacy project of the 2018 POLTEXT Conference in Budapest (organized by Miklós Sebők) and the 2019 POLTEXT Conference in Tokyo (organized by Kohei Watanabe, Lisa Lechner and Miklós Sebők – for more information, see our official website at: http://www.comptextconference.org/).  From 2020 the project continues on a new name, one that better reflects our approach.

We are seeking submissions that

  • Address the complexity of research problems at the intersection of social sciences (particularly political science and international relations) and information technology
  • Use computational methods in analyzing textual sources
  • Adhere to a comparative approach to solving these problems, such as multi-lingual comparative analysis.
