10th ACM Conference on Web Science

May 27th, 2018 - May 30th, 2018

The Network Institute hosts the 10th ACM Conference on Web Science, 27-30 May 2018. It is a wonderful opportunity and a great pleasure for the Network Institute to be able host the 10th ACM conference on Web Science, WebSci’18, at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam this year.

Web Science 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. Web Science participants are 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. The conference particularly welcomes contributions that seek to cross traditional disciplinary boundaries, that describe original research, analysis, and practice in the field of Web Science, and that discusses novel and thought-provoking ideas.

WebSci’18 is chaired by former network Institute director Hans Akkermans. Keynote speakers will be, amongst others, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web, and recipient of the 2016 Turing award, and José van Dijck, president of the KNAW.
