Happy new year and thanks to all submitters and reviewers!

First of all, we would like to wish you all a happy and productive 2017!

ICA will send out the acceptance decisions and reviews early this year, but we wanted to already express our  thanks to all submitters and especially the reviewers for helping us create a great program for ICA 2017.

We received over a hundred submissions, which is a fantastic score for a new interest group!
With the help of the reviewers, we were able to accept just under 50% of them, and decided on three different session formats to host them:

  • An interactive software demonstration session,
  • A number of regular panels on various methodological challenges,
  • And a set of high-density sessions on applications of computational methods to the various substantive communication fields.

We really look forward to seeing all of you in San Diego, and thanks so much for your ideas, submissions, and reviews, your efforts are crucial in establishing our interest group!
