The 2015 ACM Web Science conference WebSci’15 is being held at the Oxford e-Research Centre and Keble College, Oxford, with an excellent programme of over 60 papers and posters, alongside seven exciting Web Science workshops, plus keynotes, panels and Late Breaking Research. The conference runs from Sunday 28 June to Wednesday 1 July, and is the seventh in the conference series organised by the Web Science Trust.
Web Science is the emergent study of the people and technologies, applications, processes and practices that shape and are shaped by the World Wide Web. Web Science aims to draw together theories, methods and findings from across academic disciplines, and to collaborate with industry, business, government and civil society, to develop our knowledge and understanding of the Web: the largest socio-technical infrastructure in human history. This year’s paper sessions are themed around Politics & Culture, Data Challenges, Online Social Behaviour, Innovating Methods, Ethics, Digital Narratives, and Social Safety and Wellbeing.
