Modeling and Visualizing Science and Technology Developments

This colloquium brings together researchers and practitioners from multiple disciplines to present, discuss, and advance computational models and visualizations of science and technology (S&T). Existing computational models are being applied by academia, government, and industry to explore questions such as: What jobs will exist in ten years and what career paths lead to success? Which types of institutions will likely be most innovative in the future? How will the higher education cost bubble burst affect these institutions? What funding strategies have the highest return on investment? How will changing demographics, alternative economic growth trajectories, and relationships among nations impact answers to these and other questions? Large‐scale datasets (e.g., publications, patents, funding, clinical trials, stock market, social media data) can now be utilized to simulate the structure and evolution of S&T. Advances in computational power have created the possibility of implementing scalable, empirically validated computational models. However, because the databases are massive and multidimensional, both the data and the models tend to exceed human comprehension. How can advances in data visualizations be effectively employed to communicate the data, the models, and the model results to diverse stakeholder groups? Who will be the users of next generation models and visualizations and what decisions will they be addressing

YRNCS Job Fair at CCS’17

Have you got an open position in your group that you’d like to advertise? Are you a young researcher looking for career opportunities?

The YRNCS Job Fair will provide PhD students and early career researchers with a great opportunity to find out about open positions during CCS 2017. It will take place during the Welcome Cocktail reception on Monday 18th September from 7pm onwards, and flyers and posters to advertise the positions will be visible all week. The Job Fair will offer a great chance to meet potential employers and employees, or even just to mingle and make new contacts!

If you’d like to advertise a position, send a one-page flyer at
