CALL FOR WORKSHOPS FOR THE ELEVENTH INTERNATIONAL AAAI CONFERENCE ON WEB AND SOCIAL MEDIA (ICWSM)
MONTREAL, CANADA, MAY 15 - 18

The ICWSM-17 Committee invites proposals for Workshops Day at the Eleventh International AAAI Conference on Web and Social Media (ICWSM-17). The Workshops Day will be held on Tuesday, 15 May, 2017 in Montreal, Canada. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to meet and discuss issues with a selected focus providing an informal setting for active exchange among social scientists, computer scientists, and other researchers, developers and PhD students. Workshops are an excellent forum for exploring emerging approaches and task areas, for bridging the gaps between the social science and technology fields or between subfields of social media research, for elucidating the results of exploratory research, or for critiquing existing approaches.

Members of all segments of the social media research community are encouraged to submit proposals. To foster interaction and exchange of ideas, the workshops will be kept small, with 20-40 participants. Attendance is limited to active participants only.

The format of workshops will be determined by their organizers. The two main criteria for the selection of the workshops will be the following:

Workshop organizers who want to publish the papers from their workshop (or significant portions of it) will have the opportunity to do so through workshop proceedings by the AAAI Press. For a list of last year's workshops see http://www.icwsm.org/2016/program/workshop/
