==INFORMATIK 2010 Workshop on "Web Science"==
co-located with GI-Jahrestagung 2010


Web science is often referred to as the "science of decentralized 
information systems".
While novel technologies such as semantic web, web services, and cloud 
computing are germane to the broad proliferation of Web technologies, we 
also need to understand phenomena of the Web in the small as well as in 
the large, in order to retain its usefulness and benefit to people. This 
is in the center of attention of Web science and includes besides the 
mentioned technological approaches, research related to online 
communities, information diffusion on the Web, Web governance, global 
network structures beyond the individual communities on the Web, growth 
analysis, incentive and monetization systems.

This workshop provides a platform for researchers and practitioners to 
exchange preliminary results, new concepts and methodologies in this area.

===Topics of interest ===

* Web Governance incl. Provenance, Licensing, Data Security, Access
* Open Knowledge ecosystems on the Web, such as Open Governmental Data,
   Open Scientific Data
* Information quality assessment
* Quality, coherence and user interaction on the Linked Data Web
* Social computing applications such as collaborative filtering,
   community-based information retrieval and recommendation,
   collaborative bookmarking, tagging and multi-agent systems
* Static and dynamic models of Web structure and Web growth
* Analysis of network structures within and beyond individual
   communities on the Web
* Incentive and monetization systems
* Information diffusion on the Web,
* Web and Web application governance,
* Novel visualisation techniques for Web related data
* Integrating computational network analysis and semantic web
   techniques, for example to enhance the mainly structure-based network
   analysis by semantic information
* Case studies of communities such as Wikipedia, Facebook, Twitter,
   World of Warcraft, open source software as well as empirical findings
   in social computing-related applications

In particular, we aim at collecting a set of requirements, architectural 
styles and metaphors for Web science.
It is the target of such terminology and figures to build bridges of 
understanding between the different communities serving the need to 
appropriately //analyse// and //develop// social Web applications.

===Important Dates===
* 07.05.2010 **Paper Submission**
* 24.05.2010 **Acceptance Notification**
* 30.06.2010 **Final paper version due**
* 28.09.2010 **Workshop in conjunction with the GI-Jahrestagung**
