    The 11th International ACM Conference on Web Science in 2019 (WebSci'19) 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'19 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.

    Following the tradition of earlier conferences, contributions to WebSci'19 aim to cross traditional disciplinary boundaries. The community engages with novel and thought-provoking ideas and discusses original research, work in progress, analysis, and practice in the field of Web Science, its current theoretical, methodological, and epistemological challenges as well as Web practices of individuals, collectives, institutions, and platforms.

    In particular, we welcome contributions that
    • have a broader perspective on the web and that combine analyses of web data and other types of data (e.g., from surveys or interviews) to better understand user behaviour (i.e., online and offline),
    • carried out longitudinal studies,• present successful cases of inter-disciplinary and cross-disciplinary web research,
    • use mixed-method approaches or reflect on the methods used,
    • discuss responsible forms of Web Science (e.g. regarding standards, methods, generalizability of results), and/ or
    • reflect on the societal impact of web research, how the web is perceived in the media and in society and whether this clashes with the self-image of Web Science.

    Please refer to  to learn more about topics of interest, the types of papers and the submission process.

    We invite submissions to the poster session of WebSci'19. The poster session is an opportunity for computer and information scientists to present shorter results, and for researchers from other disciplines to share both unpublished and previously published work with one another and with the Web Science community.

    Please refer to  to learn more about topics of interest and the submission process.

    We hope to see you in Boston!
