Following previous very successful offerings, the Institute for Quantitative Social Science at Harvard University, jointly with Northwestern University and the London School of Economics, is delighted to announce that the third annual New Directions in Analyzing Text as Data conference will take place at Harvard on October 5--6, 2012.
By combining forces, Harvard, Northwestern and LSE offer new opportunities to bring scholars together for a even more exciting and informative event. The expertise and experience of Daniel Diermeier (two previous conferences at Kellogg), Ken Benoit (the QUANTESS [Quantitative Analysis of Textual Data for Social Sciences] project at LSE) and Arthur Spirling ("New Directions in Text Analysis" at Harvard) will allow for the best conference to date, and we hope you will be part of it. As part of this new cooperation, in future years the conference will rotate between our institutions.
We plan a two-day, invitation-only conference draws together scholars from many different universities and disciplines to discuss developments in text as data research.
