International AAAI Conference on Weblogs and Social Media

The "International AAAI Conference on Weblogs and Social Media" will take place in Ireland,Dublin on 4 Jun 2012.

 
PRLog - Apr. 25, 2012 - The International AAAI Conference on Weblogs and Social Media (ICWSM) is a unique forum that brings together researchers from the disciplines of computer science, linguistics, communication, and the social sciences. The broad goal of ICWSM is to increase understanding of social media in all its incarnations. Submissions describing research that blends social science and computational approaches are especially encouraged.

Though this conference is just in its sixth year, it has become one of the premier venues for social scientists and technologists to gather and discuss cutting-edge research in social media. This is largely due to a typical acceptance rate of 20% for full-length research papers published in our conference proceedings and support from the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI).

For ICWSM-12, in addition to the usual program of contributed technical talks, posters and invited presentations, the main conference will include a selection of keynote talks from prominent social scientists and technologists. Building on the success of the first workshops program in 2011 and our regular tutorials day, ICWSM-12 will also hold a workshops and tutorials day just before the main conference.
