ICWSM is a forum for researchers from multiple disciplines to come together to share knowledge, discuss ideas, exchange information, and learn about cutting-edge research in diverse fields with the common theme of online social media. This overall theme includes research in new perspectives in social theories, as well as computational algorithms for analyzing social media. ICWSM is a singularly fitting venue for research that blends social science and computational approaches to answer important and challenging questions about human social behavior through social media while advancing computational tools for vast and unstructured data.

For ICWSM-2020, in addition to the usual program of contributed talks, posters and demos, the main conference will include a selection of keynote talks from prominent scientists and technologists. Building on successes in previous years, ICWSM-2020 will also hold a day of workshops and tutorials in addition to the main conference.

Continuing the Social Science and Sociophysics Track — We will be continuing the 'social science and sociophysics' track at ICWSM-2020 following its successful debut in 2013. This option is for researchers in social science and sociophysics who wish to submit works without publication in the conference proceedings. While papers in this track will not be published, we expect these submissions to describe the same high-quality and complete work as the main track submissions. Papers accepted to this track will be presented either as full or poster presentations integrated with the conference, but they will be published only as abstracts in the conference proceedings. Papers submitted to this track will be reviewed through the same reviewing mechanism as full papers.
