WEBSCI 2019: CALL FOR WORKSHOPS AND TUTORIALS
11th ACM Conference on Web Science, Boston - MA, USA 2019
Notification of acceptance: February 15, 2019
Workshop/Tutorial day: June 30 2019
The 2019 WebSci Conference in Boston, MA is soliciting proposals for workshops and tutorials addressing the way Web Science research can illuminate key contemporary issues and global challenges. Workshops should reflect the multidisciplinary nature of Web Science.
The tutorials could cover a wide variety of Web Science approaches and methods, including but not limited to techniques for data collection, processing, and analysis, as well as substantive interpretation, best practices, and ethics.
Examples of potential WebSci workshop areas include:
Using Web Science for social good
Collective intelligence, collaborative production and crowdsourcing
Bias on the Web
Data ethics and algorithmic accountability
Digital inequalities: access, quality, and participation
Information privacy and cybersecurity
Learning and education on the Web
Misinformation and propaganda on the Web
Social connections and social influence on the Web
Internet politics and political participation
The evolution of social media services
Online health and wellness
Organizers are responsible for advertising accepted workshops and tutorials, recruiting participants, and managing the review process if paper submissions are invited. Successful proposals should also put together a web page describing the event and distributing any preliminary materials.
Proposals should be up to 3 pages long and should include the following information:
Workshop/tutorial summary (1-2 paragraphs)
Workshop/tutorial description, including the motivation and goals of the proposal, as well as its relevance to the field of Web Science.
Workshop/tutorial schedule and activities, including the format, proposed activities (panels, sessions, interactive exercises, etc.), as well as invited speakers or panelists.
Workshop/tutorial organizer info, including names, affiliations, emails, and personal websites. Please indicate who would be the main contact person for the submission and if the workshop has been run in the past.
Target audience and audience size: the expected number and type of attendees, along with any information about required skills or tools with which participants need to be familiar.
Special requirements or equipment, if any.
Workshop and tutorial proposals will be evaluated based on their academic rigor, timeliness, originality, potential to address important questions and attract large multidisciplinary audiences. Relevance to the field of Web Science is also a prerequisite for all submissions.
Workshop organisers are free to publish workshop proceedings. WebSci19 offers the possibility to include workshop papers as a companion collection of the ACM WebSci19 proceedings. In this case, it is crucial that workshop schedules are aligned with the schedule for the overall proceedings publication, i.e. camera-ready papers need to be ready by 1 May 2019.
