TADA 2019 invites applications for participation and research presentations on new work related to text-as-data methods and applications. TADA is an interdisciplinary conference, drawing scholars from across the social sciences, computer science, and related fields. Our programs from past meetings in 2018, 2017, and 2016 show the wide range of work presented at our conference.
TADA 2019 is a non-archival conference; there is no formal proceedings, and papers presented at the conference will not be distributed publicly. Presenters are expected to provide a paper to their discussant in a timely fashion, by September 16th. We welcome any work, so long as it hasn't been previously presented at a TADA conference.
The conference will consist of oral presentations and a poster session with Ph.D. students.
Because space is limited, we ask all interested participants to apply to attend the conference. Each individual who might attend the conference is asked to submit a separate application; each proposed paper should be submitted exactly once by a single contact author. Individuals whose paper is being submitted by another should simply answer “no” to "Are you the Contact Author for a Paper or Poster?".
Please note that paper and poster proposals are a brief abstract, rather than a full paper. In contrast with computer science conferences, this is a non-archival conference. Papers will be due by September 16th to be shared with attendees, but no proceedings will be produced.
We anticipate having lodging options available for conference participants to reserve directly. Limited travel funds will be made available for the contact author of accepted papers and posters. We will provide guidance booking rooms and accessing travel funds with your conference acceptance.
We recognize that diversity leads to stronger science, and we actively seek, welcome, and encourage people with diverse backgrounds, experiences, and identities to apply and attend.
