Meeting Description:

The 8th International AAAI Conference on Weblogs and Social Media (ICWSM-14)
Sponsored by the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence

The International AAAI Conference on Weblogs and Social Media (ICWSM) is a forum for researchers in computer science and social science to come together to share knowledge, discuss ideas, exchange information, and learn about cutting-edge research in diverse fields with the common theme of online social media. This overall theme includes research in new perspectives in social theories, as well as computational algorithms for analyzing social media. ICWSM is a singularly fitting venue for research that blends social science and computational approaches to answer important and challenging questions about human social behavior through social media while advancing computational tools for vast and unstructured data.

Call for Papers:

Important Dates:

Abstracts due: January 15, 2014 (by 11:59 pm PST)
Full papers due: January 22, 2014 (by 11:59 pm PST)
Acceptance notification: March 10, 2014
Conference: June 1-4, 2014 in Ann Arbor, Michigan

ICWSM, now in its eighth year, has become one of the premier venues for computational social science, and previous years of ICWSM have featured papers, posters, and demos that draw upon network science, machine learning, computational linguistics, sociology, communication, and political science. The uniqueness of the venue and the quality of submissions have contributed to a fast growth of the conference and a competitive acceptance rate of 20% for full-length research papers published in the proceedings by the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI).

For ICWSM-14, 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 successes in previous years, ICWSM-14 will also hold a day of workshops and tutorials in addition to the main conference.
