Web Science is concerned with the full scope of socio-technical
relationships that are engaged in the World Wide Web. It is based
on the notion that understanding the Web involves not only an
analysis of its architecture and applications, but also insight
into the people, organizations, policies, and economics that are
affected by and subsumed within it. As such Web Science, and thus
this conference, is inherently interdisciplinary and integrates
computer and information sciences, sociology, economics, political
science, law, management, language and communication, geography
and psychology. This conference is unique in the manner in which
it brings these disciplines together in creative and critical
dialogue and we invite papers from all these disciplines and
those which cross traditional disciplinary boundaries.
Following the success of WebSci'09 in Athens and WebSci'10 in
Raleigh we are seeking papers that demonstrate the development,
scope, and relevance of the emerging field of Web Science.
