Fifth International AAAI Conference on Weblogs and Social Media (ICWSM-11)
July 17-21 2011  Barcelona, Spain

Collocated with IJCAI-11

Sponsored by the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ICWSM 2011, will be held on July 17-21, 2011 in Barcelona (Spain) and will be collocated with IJCAI 2011. 

The International Conference on Weblogs and Social Media is a unique forum
that brings together researchers from the disciplines in computer science,
linguistics, communication, and the social sciences. The broad goal of
ICWSM is to increase understanding of social media in all its incarnations.
Submissions describing research that blends social science and technology
are especially encouraged.

Though this conference is relatively new, it has become one of the premier venues for social scientists and technologists to gather and discuss cutting-edge research in Social Media. This is largely due to a typical acceptance rate of 20% for full-length research papers and support from Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI). 

For ICWSM 2011, in addition to the usual program of contributed technical talks, tutorials and invited presentations, the main conference will include a selection of keynote talks and invited talks from prominent social scientists and technologists. This year, for the first time, we will be expanding our workshop program and are planning an additional workshop day in addition to the usual tutorial and main conference. We also have an exciting roster of four workshops. Please check the website for details. Also, since we will be collocating with IJCAI  (for more details on IJCAI 2011 see http://ijcai-11.iiia.csic.es/) there will be opportunities to connect with people in that community both formally and informally (joint social event is in the planning!).
