1st International workshop on Internet Science and Web Science Synergies Paris, 1 May 2013 – EXTENDED DEADLINE : 25 March 2013

https://sites.google.com/site/inetwebsci13

co-located with the ACM Web Science Conference 2013 http://www.websci13.org

===================================================

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 13 MARCH 2013 23.59 CET ===================================================

The Web and the Internet have had a transformative impact across many sectors of human activity. They have evolved from technological artefacts to socio-technical structures with tremendous potential for innovation. The interdisciplinary areas of Web Science and Internet Science aim to understand the Internet and the Web as socio-technical phenomena and to ensure their sustainability. This requires research frameworks and methods from different disciplines and the building of communities across different institutions around the world.

===================================================

TOPICS

===================================================

Given the interdependency between these two interdisciplinary areas it is natural that there exist overlaps between these two interdisciplinary areas and opportunities for collaboration and synergies. This workshop aims to bring together the two communities of Internet Science and Web Science in order to identify those overlaps, focus on specific areas for synergies and establish long-term collaboration channels. Specifically, the goals of this workshop are to:

*   Explore the relationship between Web Science and Internet Science.

*   Identify the common themes between Internet and Web Science research agendas, research infrastructures and research methods and establish synergies.

*   Explore the germane aspect privacy from the viewpoint of each of the two interdisciplinary areas.

*   Establish long-term collaboration between the two communities.

===================================================

SUBMISSION

===================================================

Submissions with position papers or reports of original research on the following topics are invited:

*   Privacy online; a Web Science and Internet Science perspective

*   Infrastructures for Web Science and Internet Science research

Position papers or research papers will be up to 5 pages long in LNCS format and will be given a 10-minute slot for presentation; presenters will be expected to join a panel at the end of each session.

Some of the submitted papers will be accepted as posters, which will be presented in the area outside of the workshop room during the break.
