CALL FOR PAPERS
"Web Science – A New Paradigm in IS-Research"

Minitrack at
17th Americas Conference on Information Systems
(AMCIS 2010)
August 12-15, 2010, Lima, Peru

http://www.amcis2010.org

****************************************************



Web Science is a new, interdisciplinary scientific paradigm (or even
discipline) that seeks to understand the Web in its whole with a focus on
technical and social challenges. The AMCIS 2010 minitrack on Web Science
welcomes in particular submissions (1) examining social aspects of the Web,
(2) using Web data for forecasting or other purposes, and (3) proposing
architectural principles of a Web infrastructure for social software.

The term Web Science was coined by Berners-Lee and colleagues (2006) in a
short Science article. Since than many researchers adopted the paradigm,
organized specialized Web Science conferences and developed the paradigm
further (e.g. Hendler et al. 2008). In this minitrack, we intend to foster
the interdisciplinary discourse between scholars developing the Web and
scholars examining the increasing amount of networked data in a variety of
disciplines such as Information Systems, Computer science, Sociology,
Physics, Management Science, Economics, Anthropology and Communication
Studies. 

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

• Social Network Analysis 
• Semantic Network Analysis
• Web mining for purposes of (collective) trend prediction / collective
intelligence / prediction markets / link prediction / agenda setting 
• Social media (e.g. blogs, media sharing sites, opinion aggregators,
Massively Multiplayer Online Games, social bookmarking sites and
folksonomies, social networking platforms (like Facebook, Habbo Hotel,
LinkedIn), and Wikis)
• Diffusion processes (e.g. eWOM, viral marketing, identifying influentials)
• Decision Support Systems using the Web
• Theoretical properties of social machines in the Web
• Algorithms for creating social machines in the Web and analyzing social
networks
• Architectural principles of a Web infrastructure for social software
• Cultural differences and social mechanisms on the Web
• Applications of the Web including e-government, e-health, e-science and
other emerging areas
• Collaborative innovation networks (COINS) / virtual communication and
collaboration
• Random graphs, modeling and simulation, or other approaches to empirical
network analysis
• Trust, privacy, risk, transparency and security
• Promoting the paradigm of Web Science (e.g. curricular and epistemological
underpinnings)

The minitrack is interdisciplinary in nature. We invite contributions from a
broad spectrum including information systems, computer science, economics,
management, sociology, psychology, biology, and physics in order to take
full advantage of methodological broadness. We also invite practitioners
that will enrich the discussions through their experiences with developing
the Web.

Papers will be peer-reviewed using a double-blind system and will be
considered for Best Paper Awards. In 2010, a Best Paper Award for a
practitioner-oriented paper will be selected with input from CIOs.

teaching, research, and project management focus on the economics and
management of IT in organizations including electronic commerce/electronic
business, social software, and social network analysis. In the mid 90’s, he
designed one of Europe’s largest empirical studies on Web-based electronic
commerce. He was appointed reviewer for electronic commerce to the German
Parliament. He consults the European Commission on research projects
conducted under Information Society Technologies (IST) programme. Detlef
Schoder holds the patent for “An individualized, printed newspaper”,
WO03052648. Recently he won the prestigious innovation award of the German
