Web Science is concerned with the full
scope of socio-technical relationships that are engaged in the World
Wide Web. It is based on the notion that understanding the Web involves
not only an analysis of its architecture and applications, but also
insight into the people, organizations, policies, and economics that are
affected by and subsumed within it.
As such Web Science, and thus this conference, is inherently
interdisciplinary and integrates computer and information sciences with a
multitude of disciplines including sociology, economics, political
science, law, management, language and communication, geography and
psychology. This conference is unique in the manner in which it brings
these disciplines together in creative and critical dialogue.
