The 12th Annual Web Science Conference (WebSci20) in Southampton, UK 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 but are not limited to:
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:
Proposals must be submitted to EasyChair by February 28, 2020.
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 organizers are free to publish workshop proceedings. WebSci20 offers the possibility to include workshop papers as a companion collection of the ACM WebSci20 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 submitted to us by 15 May 2020.
