11th ACM Conference on Web Science, Boston - MA, USA 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:

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 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.
