1st CALL FOR PAPERS

ACM Web Science Conference (WebSci14), June 23-26, 2014

Bloomington, Indiana, USA

websci14.org * @WebSciConf * #WebSci14

Deadline for papers: Feb. 23rd 2014

Web Science is the emergent science of the people, organizations,
applications, and of policies that shape and are shaped by the Web, the
largest informational artifact constructed by humans in history. Web
Science embraces the study of the Web as a vast universal information
network of people and communities. As such, Web Science includes the
study of social networks whose work, expression, and play take place on
the Web. The social sciences and computational sciences meet in Web
Science and complement one another: Studying human behavior and social
interaction contributes to our understanding of the Web, while Web data
is transforming how social science is conducted. The Web presents us
with a great opportunity as well as an obligation: If we are to ensure
the Web benefits humanity we must do our best to understand it.

Call for Papers

The Web Science conference is inherently interdisciplinary, as it
attempts to integrate computer and information sciences, communication,
linguistics, sociology, psychology, economics, law, political science,
philosophy, digital humanities, and other disciplines in pursuit of an
understanding of the Web. This conference is unique in the manner in
which it brings these disciplines together in creative and critical
dialogue, and we invite papers from all the above disciplines, and in
particular those that cross traditional disciplinary boundaries.

Following the success of WebSci'09 in Athens, WebSci'10 in Raleigh,
WebSci'11 in Koblenz, WebSci 12 in Evanston, and WebSci13 in Paris,
for the 2014 conference we are seeking papers and posters that describe
original research, analysis, and practice in the field of Web Science,
as well as work that discusses novel and thought-provoking ideas and
works-in-progress.

Possible topics for submissions include, but are not limited to, the
following:

* Analysis of human behavior using social media, mobile devices, and
online communities

* Methodological challenges of analyzing Web-based large-scale social
interaction

* Data-mining and network analysis of the Web and human communities on
the Web

* Detailed studies of micro-level processes and interactions on the Web

* Collective intelligence, collaborative production, and social
computing

* Theories and methods for computational social science on the Web

* Studies of public health and health-related behavior on the Web

* The architecture and philosophy of the Web

* The intersection of design and human interaction on the Web

* Economics and social innovation on the Web

* Governance, democracy, intellectual property, and the commons

* Personal data, trust, and privacy

* Web and social media research ethics

* Studies of Linked Data, the Cloud, and digital eco-systems

* Big data and the study of the Web

* Web access, literacy, and development

* Knowledge, education, and scholarship on and through the Web

* People-driven Web technologies, including crowd-sourcing, open data,
and new interfaces

* Digital humanities

* Arts & culture on the Web or engaging audiences using Web resources

* Web archiving techniques and scholarly uses of Web archives

* New research questions and thought-provoking ideas

Submission

Web Science is necessarily a very selective single track conference with
a rigorous review process. To accommodate the distinct traditions of its
many disciplines, we provide three different submission formats: full
papers, short papers, and posters. For all types of submissions,
inclusion in the ACM DL proceedings will be by default, but not
mandatory (opt-out via EasyChair). All accepted research papers (full
and short papers) will be presented during the single-track conference.
All accepted posters will be given a spot in the single-track lightning
talk session, and room to present their papers during a dedicated poster
session.

Full research papers (5 to 10 pages, ACM double column, 20 mins
presentation including Q&A)

Full research papers should present new results and original work that
has not been previously published. Research papers should present
substantial theoretical, empirical, methodological, or policy-oriented
contributions to research and/or practice.

Short research papers (up to 5 pages, ACM double column, 15 mins
presentation including Q&A)

Short research papers should present new results and original work that
has not been previously published. Research papers can present
preliminary theoretical, empirical, methodological, or policy-oriented
contributions to research and/or practice.

Full and short paper submissions should be formatted according to the
official ACM SIG proceedings template (WebSci archive format at
http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates).

Posters (up to 6 pages, ACM abstract template, lightning talk + poster
presentation)

Extended abstracts for posters, which should be in English, can be up to
6 pages, and should be formatted according to the official ACM SIG
abstract template (extended abstract format at
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/pl130rtd134fxu6/hiyzXgWwTs).

Other creative submission formats (flexible formats)

Other types of creative submissions are also encouraged, and the exact
format and style of presentation are open. Examples might include
artistic performances or installations, interactive exhibits,
demonstrations, or other creative formats. For these submissions, the
proposers should make clear both what they propose to do, and any
special requirements they would need to successfully do it (in terms of
space, time, technology, etc.)

Instructions for all types of submissions will be posted on the
WebSci14 conference website soon.

Review

The Web Science program committee consists of a program committee that
covers all relevant areas of Web Science. Each submission will be
refereed by three PC members and one short meta review written by a
Co-PC chair,to cover both the research background of each submission as
well as the necessary interdisciplinary aspects.

(Optional) Archival Proceedings in the ACM Digital Library

All accepted papers and posters will by default appear in the Web
Science 2014 Conference Proceedings and can also be made available
through the ACM Digital Library, in the same length and format of the
submission unless indicated otherwise (those wishing not to be indexed
and archived can opt out of the proceedings).

Deadlines (tentative)

Full & Short Papers:

* 23 February 2014: Submissions of full and short papers

* 13 April 2014: Notification of acceptance for papers

Authors take note: The official publication date is the date the
proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may
be up to two weeks prior to the first day of the conference. The
official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings
related to published work. (If proceedings are published in the ACM
Digital Library after the conference is over, the official publication
date is the first day of the conference.)
