      CALL FOR PAPERS & CALL FOR WORKSHOPS AND TUTORIAL PROPOSALS
      ACM Web Science Conference (WebSci'14), June 23-26, 2014
      Bloomington, Indiana, USA
      websci14.org / @WebSciConf / #WebSci14
      Deadline for papers: Feb. 23rd 2014
      Deadline for workshop & tutorial proposals: Jan. 17th 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 WebSci'13 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

      A separate Call for Workshop and Tutorial Proposals is on the
      conference website at:
      http://www.websci14.org/#call-for-workshop-and-tutorial-proposals


      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.


      Posters (up to 2 pages, ACM double column, lightning talk + poster
      presentation)


      Extended abstracts for posters, which should be in English, can be up
      to 2 pages.


      Submission instructions


      Full and short paper and poster submissions should be formatted
      according to the official ACM SIG proceedings template (WebSci archive
      format at http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates).
      Please submit papers using EasyChair at
      https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=websci2014.


      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.)


      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).


      Call for Workshops and Tutorial Proposals


      The Web Science conference will start with tutorials and workshops
      that will promote in-depth training and discussions with the goal of
      understanding how people, organizations, applications, and policies
      shape and are shaped by the Web. In agreement with the spirit of the
      conference, the tutorials and workshops are intended to create
      opportunities for interdisciplinary discussion around themes and
      methods that are central to the study of the Web. The list of themes
      includes, but is not restricted to,

      1. Methods for data mining and network research;
      2. The study of social dynamics (i.e. political campaigns, censorship)
      using Web data;
      3. The relationship between technical design and individual behaviour
      (i.e. the impact of by-default design on privacy);
      4. The future of the Web in an era of increasing mobile applications;
      5. The incentives and limits of regulation;
      6. Participatory systems and crowdsourcing;
      7. The dynamics of information creation (supply) and consumption
      (demand) and its relation to real world events.

      We will give priority to proposals that approach their topic from the
      perspective of various disciplines, spanning the divide between the
      social and computer sciences. Tutorials and workshops can be designed
      as half or full day events. Workshops can have a mixture of panel
      presentations and invited speakers, but presentations should reflect
      the diversity of approaches that characterize the multidisciplinary
      nature of Web Science.
