The International AAAI Conference on Weblogs and Social Media (ICWSM) is a unique forum bringing together researchers working at the nexus of computer science and the social sciences, with work drawing upon network science, machine learning, computational linguistics, sociology and communication. 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.
This conference, now in its eighth year, 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-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.
