The Data Science Studies (DSS) group at New York University, UC Berkeley, and Univeristy of Washington, part of the Moore and Sloan Data Science Environment (MSDSE), together with collaborators from The Center for Science, Technology, Medicine, & Society (CSTMS) at UC Berkeley, are organizing a thematic track on Critical Data Studies for the 4s/EASST Conference BCN-2106 Science + Technology by Other Means: Exploring Collectives, Spaces, and Futures in Barcelona, August 31 – September 3, 2016.

They are inviting papers investigating data-driven techniques in academic research and analytic industries and the consequences of implementing data­-driven products and processes. Papers utilizing computational methods or ethnography with theorization of technology, social power, or politics are encouraged.
