Small Groups

The Computational Methods Interest Group caters to a wide array of methodological and theoretical interests. Small groups are an opportunity for members of Computational Methods to communicate and network with other researchers who share more specific interests.

Small groups are open to members of all experience levels and academic rank. Each small group is organized by a graduate student or early-career scholar.

If you are interested in participating in a small group, please reach out to the appropriate organizer below. If you are interested in organizing a small group, please contact CMIG Student & Early Career Representative Josephine Lukito.

Data Sharing Small Group
Organizer: Frederic Rene Hopp
Objective: To collect, organize, and document open-source datasets that can assist in communication research. The goal of this group is to have a preliminary database of datasets by ICA 2020.

Computational Methods Reading Small Group
Organizer: Nate TeBlunthuis
Objective: To read and share ideas about computational communication research papers. This will include pieces from Computational Communication Research (CCR).

Natural Language Processing Small Group
Organizer: Josephine Lukito
Objective: To promote NLP tools and applications made by and for communication researchers. The goal of this group is to organize a small conference (tentatively set for 2021).
