Welcome to the Sixteenth Symposium on Statistical Challenges in Electronic Commerce Research. This year we bring SCECR to the beautiful city of Madrid in Spain. As always, we hope to assemble a fantastic set of full and short paper sessions from June 18th through 19th, 2020. The submission of extended abstracts will be due by Feb. 1, 2020. A more detailed call for papers will be published on the site very soon, so stay tuned.
Keeping with past tradition, we will be arranging for a set of exciting social events to help you unwind after the busy conference itinerary (details to follow).
Call for Papers
We invite submissions for the Sixteenth Symposium on Statistical Challenges in eCommerce Research (SCECR 2020) to be hosted in Madrid, Spain on June 18-19, 2020.
In recent years, we have witnessed the emergence of a wide range of business and social models based on information technology-enabled data: from online retailing and online dating to crowdsourcing and crowdfunding. The growth of information technology and its subsequent permeation into social media, the corporate arena, public policy, and countless other fields has irrevocably changed the modern world. We now have a chance to harness the power of information technology and use it to encourage and create global and local projects for social good, including programs that stimulate developing economies, work to solve public health issues, and create positive change in communities from the grassroots to the global level.
In the current era, vast amounts of data on behavior and events are available that have not previously been accessible both in the developed and the developing world. Researchers are collecting and using this data to address a variety of topics related to the social and economic impact of information technology-enabled models. The purpose of this conference is to gather an interdisciplinary group of researchers interested in using empirical methods to derive insights from information technology-enabled data in a range of areas, in particular, those that tackle questions of social good and data-driven decision-making.
We invite submissions of papers that highlight statistical challenges and empirical opportunities related to eCommerce research, Big Data, Internet of Things, smart cities, AI and related areas. We also welcome methodological contributions on statistical, data mining or other approaches, motivated by data and enabled by information technology. Submissions should highlight statistical/empirical challenges in the work that the authors hope to obtain input/feedback on from the SCECR community.
Authors are invited to submit abstracts of their work for consideration at the conference. Abstracts should be a maximum of two pages (excluding references, figures, and tables), and should outline the research conducted as well as identify the statistical challenges associated with it. As this is a work-in-progress symposium, we will evaluate abstracts based on the fit of the research with the symposium’s goals and its ability to stimulate lively discussion around the particular empirical challenges and potential solutions. Submissions will be accepted starting January 1st.
