ICWSM 2022 将于 2022/6/6-2022/6/9在美国 ATLANTA, GEORGIA 和线上举行。

现在大会正在征稿中!

ICWSM (The International AAAI Conference on Web and Social Media)是AAAI旗下唯一以在线社会媒体为中心的国际学术会议,会议强调结合社会科学和计算科学方法来研究社会媒体中的个体与群体行为,研究主题涵盖社会协同与交互理论,社交行为的定性定量分析,社会媒体文本建模、分析与预测,社会化协同推荐,社会媒体系统设计与实现等。今年是ICWSM创办的第15个年头,自创办以来先后在美国、西班牙、爱尔兰、英国、德国、加拿大等国家或地区召开,现已成为系统研究社会媒体的重要国际学术会议。

The International AAAI Conference on Web and Social Media (ICWSM) is a forum for researchers from multiple disciplines to come together to share knowledge, discuss ideas, exchange information, and learn about cutting-edge research in diverse fields with the common theme of online social media. This overall theme includes research in new perspectives in social theories, as well as computational algorithms for analyzing social media. ICWSM is a singularly fitting venue for research that blends social science and computational approaches to answer important and challenging questions about human social behavior through social media while advancing computational tools for vast and unstructured data.

ICWSM, now in its sixteenth year, has become one of the premier venues for computational social science, and previous years of ICWSM have featured papers, posters, and demos that draw upon network science, machine learning, computational linguistics, sociology, communication, and political science. The uniqueness of the venue and the quality of submissions have contributed to a rapidly growing conference, and a competitive acceptance rate of approximately 20% for full-length research papers published in the proceedings by the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI).

ICWSM-2022 will be held from June 6th – 9th in a hybrid format, both in-person in Atlanta, Georgia and online.

Topics Include (But Not Limited To)

  • Studies of digital humanities (culture, history, arts) using social media
  • Psychological, personality-based and ethnographic studies of social media
  • Analysis of the relationship between social media and mainstream media
  • Qualitative and quantitative studies of social media
  • Centrality/influence of social media publications and authors
  • Ranking/relevance of social media content and users
  • Credibility of online content
  • Social network analysis; communities identification; expertise and authority discovery
  • Trust; reputation; recommendation systems
  • Human computer interaction; social media tools; navigation and visualization
  • Subjectivity in textual data; sentiment analysis; polarity/opinion identification and extraction, linguistic analyses of social media behavior
  • Text categorization; topic recognition; demographic/gender/age identification
  • Trend identification and tracking; time series forecasting
  • Measuring predictability of real world phenomena based on social media, e.g., spanning politics, finance, and health
  • New social media applications; interfaces; interaction techniques
  • Engagement, motivations, incentives, and gamification
  • Social innovation and effecting change through social media
  • Social media usage on mobile devices; location, human mobility, and behavior
  • Organizational and group behavior mediated by social media; interpersonal communication mediated by social media

  • After clicking 'Go' a placeholder submission will appear in the table below. Click on 'Edit Submission' to add your paper details.

  • The submission will be marked complete when you have entered all the required fields, but you will still be able make edits until submissions are closed.

The 2022 reviewing process will be similar to that of the 2021 process. Papers to be considered for publication in the ICWSM proceedings, and presentation at the ICWSM-2022 conference, must be submitted by one of the three submission deadlines listed above. Authors who receive the 'Accept' recommendation will have the opportunity to respond to reviewer suggestions by making minor edits when preparing the camera-ready version. Authors who receive the 'Revise and Resubmit' recommendation will have the opportunity to address reviewer suggestions and resubmit an improved manuscript in the next submission deadline.

Authors who receive 'Revise and Resubmit' in January 2022 will likely be presenting during the 2023 conference if their papers get accepted during the next submission round. Papers accepted to this track will be presented as full-length presentations at the ICWSM-2022 conference and they will be published as journal articles in the ICWSM proceedings.See the full submission guidelines for more information.

Social Science and Sociophysics Track

We will be continuing the 'social science and sociophysics' track at ICWSM-2022 following its successful debut in 2013. This option is for researchers in social science and sociophysics who wish to submit works without publication in the conference proceedings. While papers in this track will not be published, we expect these submissions to describe the same high-quality and complete work as the main track submissions. Papers accepted to this track will be presented either as full-length or poster presentations integrated with the conference, and their abstracts will be published in the conference proceedings. Papers submitted to this track will be reviewed through the same reviewing process as full papers.

Call for Workshops

The ICWSM-2022 Committee invites proposals for Workshops Day at the 16th International AAAI Conference on Weblogs and Social Media (ICWSM-2022). The Workshops Day will be held on June 6th, 2022. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to meet and discuss issues with a selected focus -- providing an informal setting for active exchange among researchers and developers from a wide range of disciplines, including social science and computer science. Workshops are an excellent forum for exploring emerging approaches and task areas, bridging gaps between the social sciences and computing, and elucidating results of exploratory research.

Members of the social media research community are encouraged to submit proposals. To foster interaction and exchange of ideas, the workshops will be kept small, with up to 40 participants.

The format of workshops will be determined by their organizers. The two main criteria for the selection of the workshops will be the following:

  • The organizers encourage workshops that promote different types of activities, including challenges, games, brainstorming, and networking sessions. The organizers discourage workshops that are structured as mini-conferences dominated by long talks and short discussions. Workshops should leave ample time for discussions and interaction between the participants and should also encourage the submission and presentation of position papers that discuss new research ideas.

  • The workshop should have the potential to attract the interest of researchers in computer science and social science. Proposals involving people of different backgrounds in the organizing committee and addressing topics at the intersection of different disciplines will have a higher chance of acceptance.

Workshop organizers who want to publish the papers from their workshop (or significant portions of it) will have the opportunity to do so through workshop proceedings by the AAAI Press. For a list of last year's workshops see here.

Workshop proposal contents

Proposals for workshops should be no more than five (5) pages in length (10pt, single column, with reasonable margins), written in English, and should contain the following:

  • A concise title

  • The names, affiliations, and contact information of the organizing committee. A main contact author should be specified. A typical proposal should include no more than four co-chairs.

  • An indication as to whether the workshop should be considered for a half-day or full-day meeting

  • A short abstract describing the scope and main objective of the workshop. Identify the specific issues and research questions the workshop will focus on, with a brief discussion of why the topic is of particular interest at this time and for which research communities.

  • A two/three paragraph description of the workshop topic and themes.

  • A description of the proposed workshop format and a detailed list of proposed activities, with special emphasis on those activities that distinguish it from a mini-conference (e.g., games, brainstorming sessions, challenges, group activities).

  • An approximate timeline of the activities.

  • A description of how workshop submissions will be evaluated and selected (invited contributions, peer review, etc.). In case a PC is needed, provide a tentative list of the members.

  • Historical information about the workshop, if available. Short description of the previous editions reporting highlights and details about the approximate number of attendees and number of submissions.

  • A list of other related workshops held previously at related conferences, if any (list does not have to be exhaustive), together with a brief statement on how the proposed workshop differs from or how it follows-up on work presented at previous workshopss.

  • A short bio for each member of the organizing committee, including a description of their relevant expertise. Strong proposals include organizers who bring differing perspectives to the workshop topic and who are actively connected to the communities of potential participants.

Please try to use the AAAI Author Kit to format your submission, which is available here. Your proposal should be emailed in a single file to the workshop chairs at workshops@icwsm.org before the deadline. For additional information please contact the workshop chairs at the same address.

Tutorials

All deadlines are by 23:59 Anywhere on Earth

Tutorial Submission Deadline: January 21, 2022

Tutorial Acceptance Notification: February 4, 2022

ICWSM-2022 Tutorial Day: June 6, 2022

Submission Information

Call for Tutorials

ICWSM-2022 invites proposals for Tutorials Day at the 16th International AAAI Conference on Web and Social Media (ICWSM). ICWSM-2022 is seeking proposals for tutorials on topics related to the computational analysis and understanding of social phenomena in the following formats:

Lecture-style: Traditional tutorials to teach concepts, methodologies, tools, and software packages. Tutorials on novel and fast growing directions and significant applications are highly encouraged. The conference is paying particular attention to themes around new perspectives in social theories, as well as computational algorithms for analyzing new forms of social media. Lecture-style tutorials on these themes are highly encouraged.

Hands-on: Interactive, in-depth, hands-on training on cutting edge systems and tools (with a proven track record in the community), targeted at novice as well as moderately skilled users, with a focus on providing an engaging experience. The pace of the tutorial should be set such that beginners can follow along comfortably.

Translation: Tutorials that aim to translate concepts between disciplines. For example, such a tutorial could introduce social science concepts to computer scientists, or computational concepts to social scientists. Thus, these tutorials should be geared towards a beginner audience.

Case study: Focused tutorials that emphasize real world applications of ICWSM work. These tutorials should walk the audience through how research insights and tools were applied in practice. We welcome submissions from practitioners in industry, government, and NGOs in addition to academics.

Free-style: We also welcome proposals for creative and unconventional training sessions, such as hackathons, competitions/challenges, etc., as long as participants can learn practical skills and participate in an active way.

We welcome tutorials of various lengths (1, 2, 4, or up to 8 hours). We are looking for contributions from experts in both the social and computational sciences, in industry, academia, and beyond. For a list of tutorials from previous years, we encourage you to visit the tutorials page for 201820192020, and 2021. We especially encourage applications from first-time proposers and scholars with research communities beyond ICWSM.

Acceptance Criteria

The format will be entirely determined by the tutorial organizers—i.e., you! Proposals will be selected for inclusion considering the following criteria:

Relevance, interest, and value of the topic to ICWSM attendees and research communities.

Cross-pollination potential. Tutorials that attract an interdisciplinary audience will be given preference. The proposals should highlight, when applicable, the tutorial’s potential to transfer knowledge from one discipline/area to another.

Interactivity. We will favor tutorials that aim to include hands-on experiences, collaborative approaches, and interactivity.

Completeness, clarity, and quality of the proposal and materials, including the schedule of the tutorial.

Expertise of the presenters.

Proposals of tutorials presented at past events are allowed, although novelty is a plus. The tutorial chairs may also reach out to potential tutorial presenters about a change in format length depending on expected increased interest or capacity constraints.

Tutorial proposal content and format

Proposals for tutorials should be no more than three (3) pages in length. Proposal submissions should include the following information:

Title. A concise title.

Abstract. A short description (200 words) of the main objective of the tutorial, to be published on the main ICWSM website.

Type. The type of tutorial you are proposing: lecture-style, hands-on, translation, case study, or free-style.

Names, affiliations, emails, and personal websites of the tutorial organizers. A main contact author should be specified. A typical proposal should include no more than three presenters (more people can be involved in the organization).

Duration. A short timeline description of how you plan to break down the material over the proposed duration (1, 2, 4, or 8 hours). Please mention here the proposed duration, but keep in mind that the Tutorial Chairs might conditionally accept a proposal and suggest a different duration to best fit the organization of the whole event.

Interaction style for hybrid format. ICWSM-2022 will be a hybrid conference. Tutorials may be in-person with a virtual option or natively virtual. Proposers should describe their hybrid setup and mention how they will handle in-person and remote participation. How will you ensure that the tutorial will be successful in the hybrid format? What techniques and formats will you use to present the tutorial at a hybrid conference?

Tutorial schedule and activities. A description of the proposed tutorial format, a schedule of the proposed activities (e.g., presentations, interactive sessions) along with a *detailed* description for each of them.

Target audience, prerequisites and outcomes. A description of the target audience, the prerequisite skill set for the attendee (if any) as well as a brief list of goals for the tutors to accomplish by the end of the tutorial.

Materials. The organizers of accepted tutorials will be required to set up a web page containing all the information for the tutorial attendees before the tutorial day (roughly 2 weeks before the tutorial day). The proposal should contain the list of materials that will be made available on the website.

Past precedent (when available): A list of other tutorials held previously at related conferences, if any, together with a brief statement on how the proposed tutorial relates to previous events. If the authors of the proposal have organized other tutorials in the past, pointers to the relevant material (e.g., slides, videos, web pages, code) should be provided.

Additional info for hands-on tutorials:

  1. Operating system and required installed tools on attendees’ devices.

  2. List of software licenses required for the tools.

  3. Setup instructions for attendees. (The setup should not take more than 1 hour to complete.)

If you have questions on any of the submission requirements or for presubmission feedback/questions, please reach out to the tutorial chairs (David Jurgens, Catalina Toma, Robert West) at the address tutorials@icwsm.org.
