ACM Web Science 2011

Web Science is concerned with the full scope of socio-technical relationships that are engaged in the World Wide Web. It is based on the notion that understanding the Web involves not only an analysis of its architecture and applications, but also insight into the people, organizations, policies, and economics that are affected by and subsumed within it.

As such Web Science, and thus this conference, is inherently interdisciplinary and integrates computer and information sciences with a multitude of disciplines including sociology, economics, political science, law, management, language and communication, geography and psychology. This conference is unique in the manner in which it brings these disciplines together in creative and critical dialogue.

The ACM Web Science Conference 2011 will be held in Koblenz, Germany. The 2011 edition of the Web Science Conference will be the first of the series to be an ACM conference. The ACM Web Science Conference is also supported by the International Communication Association (ICA) and by the ACM Special Interest Group on Hypertext, Hypermedia and the Web (SIGWEB).
