The 10th International ACM Conference on Web Science in 2018 (WebSci’18) is a unique conference where a multitude of disciplines converge in a creative and critical dialogue with the aim of understanding the Web and its impacts. WebSci’18 welcomes participation from diverse fields including (but not limited to) art, anthropology, computer and information sciences, communication, economics, humanities, informatics, law, linguistics, philosophy, political science, psychology, and sociology. We particularly welcome contributions that seek to cross traditional disciplinary boundaries. We are seeking papers 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 important research-in-progress.


A highlight of this year’s WebSci conference is that Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web and the recipient of the 2016 ACM A.M. Turing Award, more popularly known as the Nobel Prize for Informatics, will deliver his Turing Lecture as a keynote at the WebSci’18 Conference, on Tuesday 29 May 2018.

Other keynotes focus on Doing Interdisciplinary Research (Prof. Dr. José van Dijck, President of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences KNAW) and on the Future of Semantics on the Web (Prof. Dr. John Domingue, Director of the Knowledge Media Institute, The Open University, UK).

Deadline papers for the main conference are due 25 February 2018, Midnight UTC.
