processing, and analysis, as well as substantive interpretation, best 
practices, and ethics.

Examples of potential WebSci workshop areas include:
- Using Web Science for social good
- Collective intelligence, collaborative production and crowdsourcing
- Bias on the Web
- Data ethics and algorithmic accountability
- Digital inequalities: access, quality, and participation
- Information privacy and cybersecurity
- Learning and education on the Web
- Misinformation and propaganda on the Web
- Social connections and social influence on the Web
- Internet politics and political participation
- The evolution of social media services
- Online health and wellness


Proposals should be up to 3 pages long and should  include the following 
- Workshop/tutorial title
- Workshop/tutorial summary (1-2 paragraphs)
- Workshop/tutorial description, including the motivation and goals of - 
the proposal, as well as its relevance to the field of Web Science.
- Workshop/tutorial schedule and activities, including the format, 
proposed activities (panels, sessions, interactive exercises, etc.), as 
well as invited speakers or panelists.
- Workshop/tutorial organizer info, including names, affiliations, 
emails, and personal websites. Please indicate who would be the main

the past.
- Target audience and audience size: the expected number and type of

with which participants need to be familiar.

Proposals must be submitted to Easychair via 
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=websci19 (workshop & tutorial 
track) by January 25, 2019.


Workshop and tutorial proposals will be evaluated based on their 
academic rigor, timeliness, originality, potential to address important 
questions and attract large multidisciplinary audiences. Relevance to 
the field of Web Science is also a prerequisite for all submissions.

Workshop organisers are free to publish workshop proceedings. WebSci19 
offers the possibility to include workshop papers as a companion 
collection of the ACM WebSci19 proceedings. In this case, it is crucial 
that workshop schedules are aligned with the schedule for the overall 
proceedings publication, i.e. camera-ready papers need to be ready by 1 
May 2019.
