This year WebSci’23 is co-located with The Web Conference, with both taking place in Austin, Texas. WebSci’23 will take place on Sunday, April 30 and Monday, May 01.  To participate in the WebSci’23 conference, you may choose to either register for WebSci-only at a rate of $100 for virtual participation or $450 early-bird rate for in-person participation, or register for The Web Conference, which allows for participation in WebSci’23 at no additional costs.

In other exciting news, WebSci and SIGWEB have agreed to support students and early career scholars via travel grants and free online tickets. Details on the criteria and application procedures will be shared via mail updates and our social media channels soon, so stay tuned for this!

While we are still working on the last aspects of the conference program and the exact timings, we can promise you two conference days packed with interesting events, including keynotes by Dhiraj Murthy and David Rand (shared with The Web Conference) and attendance at The Web Conference’s keynote talk by Bob Metcalfe.  WebSci’23 will close with an expert panel on Monday evening.

Front and center of the conference will, as always, of course be the authors and their submissions, discussing all aspects of this year’s theme Inequalities in the Face of Concurrent Crises. WebSci’23 will therefore have paper sessions on the full range of Web Science topics, approaching the theme from different perspectives – from Online Communities and Digital Analytics and Language and Emotions to sessions on Politics and IdeologyHarmful and Problematic Behavior, and Misinformation and Misperceptions. Over the coming weeks, we will present the individual paper sessions in more detail.

For this and everything else #WebSci23, keep an eye on the hashtag on social media.

  • Call for hosts: WebSci’24 and WebSci’25

    The Steering Committee of ACM WebSci is seeking statements of interest from organizations or consortia interested in hosting the 16th or 17th ACM Web Science Conferences (WebSci 2024 and WebSci 2025). The conference series usually moves between the continents.  We will accept bids from all locations, but for the 2024 conference, we will give preference to bids within Europe […]

While most of us will have to wait for another couple of weeks before being able to read through all the great contributions to #WebSci23, our Best Paper Committee (@KristinaLerman and @rhodiuslin) is already deliberating on the award candidates... Stay tuned!

Together with @ACM_SIGWEB, we are pleased to announce the availability of a fund to help support attendance at the #WebSci23 conference, taking place in Austin, TX from April 30th to May 1st! 🧵 1/4

What happens if you collect tweets mentioning QAnon in 2023 to analyze?

You'll only get a bunch of Democrats criticizing the theory, as 85% of the tweets are no more!

*My* paper "The Impact of Data Persistence Bias on Social Media Studies" is accepted to @WebSciConf!
