[Call for Paper]

The 3rd International Workshop on Trend and Future of Web Science
(TFWS 2013)


Date: August 20-23, 2013

Location: Beijing, China,

Conference Website: http://www.china-iot.net/CPSCom2013.htm


n  About TFWS

The 3rd International Workshop on the Trend and Future of Web Science will be held in conjunction with IEEE iThings, IEEE CPSCOM and ACM/IEEE GreenCom. Given the success of the previous editions of this workshop, which has been collocated with IEEE CPSCom2012 (Besancon, France) and CPSCom2011(Dalian, China), we were encouraged to organize the third version of this series.


n  Aims and Scope

The workshop aims to discuss key issues and practices of Web Science. Web Science is concerned with the full scope of socio-technical relationships that are engaged in the World Wide Web, and is thus inherently interdisciplinary. We need to understand science of decentralized information systems and analyze its usefulness and benefit to people. In order to understand phenomena of Web evolution, interplay between aspects of computer science in different fields (e.g. computer and information science, sociology, law, communication, and psychology, etc.) is required. The workshop will provide a cross-disciplinary forum for researchers to share their research efforts and ideas between industry and academia. In particular, we will discuss what the future of the Web Science might be in the light of the recent wave of Semantic Web and Social Web technologies and services. In addition, we will organize invited talks that will discuss the interdisciplinary challenges of Social Semantic Web. We solicit the following types of submissions:


l  Highly-innovative research contributions; new perspectives on semantic and social data mining, empirical studies for emerging trends and technologies, etc.

l  Position papers discussing the future of the Web Science


By bringing together representatives of academia and industry, the workshop is also a means for identifying new research problems and disseminating results of the research and practice.


n  Topics of Interest

The aim of this workshop is to cover all aspects that relate to research and practical issues of Web Science. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

-       Semantic and Social Data

-       (Governmental) Linked Data

-       General ontology for (open) linked data

-       Creating and combining social and linked data

-       Scalable solutions for linking linked data

-       Linked data analysis

-       Entity disambiguation on large scale linked data

-       Enabling social trust using provenance

-       Visualizing semantic & linked data

-       The dark side of the Web (e.g. cybercrime, pornography, and terrorism)

-       Trust and privacy

-       Evolving technologies (e.g. search technologies)

-       Case studies of communities such as Twitter, Facebook as well as empirical findings in social semantic Web

-       Mining collective and semantic-based social network

-       Mining semantics of social relationships

-       Integrating computational network analysis and semantic web techniques

-       Data Science including modeling, resolving, and querying the Web of Data

-       Data Science on Technology/Competitive/Collective Intelligence

-       Trends and Technologies on Data Science


n  Target Audience

The TFWS Workshop invites researchers, engineers, service developers to present their research and works in the field of Web Science. Papers may deal with methods, models, case studies, practical experiences and technologies.


n  Paper Submission

-      Authors are invited to submit original papers that MUST NOT have been submitted to or published in any other workshop, conference, or journal.

-      Full Papers (up to 8 pages) and Short Papers (up to 4 pages) are solicited.  

-      All papers will be reviewed by the Program Committee for significance, originality, accuracy, and clarity.

-      Submit your paper(s) as a PDF File through TFWS 2013 submission site .


n  Formatting and Publication Instrunctions

Authors are invited to submit original papers that must not have been submitted to, or have been published in, any other workshop, conference, or journal. All papers will be peer-reviewed by members of the Program Committee and be evaluated for originality, significance of the contribution, technical correctness, and presentation. Papers (the length of each paper could be from 1 page to 8 pages without overlength charges, the further allowed overlength could be up to 2 pages, each overlength page charge US$100.00) are solicited. Prepare your paper in IEEE CS format. Paper formatting instructions and templates (8.5 x 11 two-column format) can be found at:

-      http://www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/formatting

Please find the templates: Microsoft Word 2003 and LaTeX for Windows.

Each submission should be regarded as an undertaking that, if the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors must register for the conference and attend the conference to present the work in order for the paper to be included in the IEEE Digital Library.  

Accepted papers will be published in proceedings of the CPSCom 2013 conference by IEEE Computer Society (EI indexed). Extended versions of selected best papers will be considered for publication in special issues of several SCI-indexed international journals.

IEEE CPSCom 2013 proceedings will be submitted for publication in IEEE Computer Society Digital Library (IEEE CSDL) and in IEEE Xplore . Proceedings will be submitted for EI indexing. Extended versions of selected best papers will be considered for publication in special issues of several SCI-indexed international journals.
