Web Science Summer Academy - Koblenz 2011

is the largest human information construct in history. The scale of its
impact and the rate of its adoption are unparalleled. If we are to

understand it, engineer its future and ensure its social benefit. Web
Science is the new interdisciplinary field targeting these objectives.
