Screens: Moving, Displaying, and Disrupting the Web
The international conference on Web Studies is a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed scientific gathering that investigates the World Wide Web as an object of inquiry. It conceives the Web as an expansive entity: an extended space that reaches every domain of life. Seen from different perspectives and disciplines, the components of the Web can be seized as data structures, algorithmic processes, visual surface, cultural uses, or artistic expressions.
Web Studies was initiated in 2010; WS.1 was organized at Tecnológico de Monterrey (Toluca, Mexico). In 2018, the second edition, WS.2, took place in Paris (MSH Paris Nord), in cooperation with ACM SIGWEB. The third edition of the international conference, WS.3, was co-organized with Université de la Manouba, Tunisia, and took place online.
The fourth edition will take place at the Tecnológico de Monterrey Campus Ciudad de México, in Mexico City.
