Papers from the 2011 ICWSM Workshop
Alejandro Jaimes, Carlos Castillo, Ricardo Baeza-Yates, Sandra Gonzalez-Bailon, Workshop Cochairs
The aim of this workshop is to encourage discussion and sharing of ideas and highly innovative research results that focus on the future of the social web. We aim to promote interdisciplinary research and exchange of ideas in this area, not only between industry and academia, but also between different fields (e.g., computer science, mathematics, physics, psychology, sociology, cultural anthropology, etc.). In particular, we would like to discuss what the future of the web might be in light of the recent wave of social media technologies and services: there is little doubt that the web is being fundamentally transformed by social media, both in terms of how content is created and shared, and also in terms of how business and society are embracing social media.
