  • Paper submission: July 7, 2011
  • Author Notification: August 5, 2011
  • Camera-ready submission: August 15, 2011

Workshop Aims and Scope[edit]

This workshop aims to discuss key issues and practices of Web Science. Web Science is concerned with the full scope of socio-technical relationships that are engaged in the World Wide Web, and is thus inherently interdisciplinary. We need to understand “science of decentralized information systems” and analyze its usefulness and benefit to people. In order to understand phenomena of Web evolution, interplay between aspects of computer science in different fields (e.g. computer and information science, sociology, law, communication, and psychology, etc.) is required. The workshop will provide a cross-disciplinary forum for researchers to share their research efforts and ideas between industry and academia. In particular, we will discuss what the future of the Web Science might be in the light of the recent wave of Semantic Web and Social Web technologies and services. In addition, we will organize invited talks that will discuss the interdisciplinary challenges of Social Semantic Web. We solicit the following types of submissions:

  • Highly-innovative research contributions; new perspectives on semantic and social data mining, empirical studies for emerging trends and technologies, etc.
  • Position papers discussing the future of the Web Science

By bringing together representatives of academia and industry, the workshop is also a means for identifying new research problems and disseminating results of the research and practice.

Top.css of Interest[edit]

The aim of this workshop is to cover all aspects that relate to research and practical issues of Web Science. Top.css of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Semantic and Social Data
  • (Governmental) Linked Data
  • General ontologies for (open) linked data
  • Creating and combining social and linked data
  • Scalable solutions for linking linked data
  • Linked data analysis Entity disambiguation on large scale linked data
  • Enabling social trust using provenance
  • Visualizing semantic & linked data
  • The dark side of the Web (e.g. cybercrime and terrorism)
  • Trust and privacy Evolving technologies (e.g. search technologies)
  • Case studies of communities such as Twitter, Facebook as well as empirical findings in social semantic web
  • Mining collective and semantic-based social network
  • Mining semant.css of social relationships
  • Integrating computational network analysis and semantic web techniques
  • Data Science including modeling, resolving, and querying the Web of Data
  • Data Science on Technology/Competitive/Collective Intelligence
  • Trends and Technologies on Data Science

Target audience[edit]

The TFWS Workshop invites researchers, engineers, service developers to present their research and works in the field of Web Science. Papers may deal with methods, models, case studies, practical experiences and technologies.

Paper Submission[edit]

Authors are invited to submit original manuscripts, neither submitted nor accepted for publication in any other workshop, conference, or journal. They must be written in English. We provide two call for papers:

  • Research Paper: We solicit submission of original research, as well as experience and vision papers from both researchers and practitioners. Prepare your paper in the IEEE CS format (up to 4 pages). Prepare your paper in the IEEE CS format. Paper formatting instructions and templates (8.5x11 two-column format) can be found at
  • Poster Paper: The Poster session is an exciting and highly interactive way to demonstrate feasibility of research and to stimulate the discussion on future trends in Web Science. The session is not intended for the demonstration of commercial products. The number of pages of the contribution must be no more than 2 pages. This page limit includes all parts of the paper (i.e. title, abstract, body, and bibliography).

Every submitted paper will be carefully reviewed by at least three members of the Program Committee and reviews will be returned to the author(s) with comments to ensure the high quality of the accepted papers.

Authors are invited to send their manuscripts as an attachment (PDF/PS format) through the EasyChair system, In case of any inquires, please do not hesitate to contact organizing committee chairs:

  • One of workshop authors must register to the main conference, not to this workshop. The registration fees are the same for the main conference.


Proceedings of TFWS2011 will be published by IEEE Computer Society (EI indexed). Selected best papers from TFWS2011 will be recommended for publication in special issues of several SCI-indexed international journals (check the Special Issues webpage for details).
