International AAAI Conference on Web and Social Media (ICWSM)
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. Organised on the 18-20 of May 2016, D-CENT has had two of its research accepted for the conference.
ICWSM, now in its tenth 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 programme is still to be announced, but the keynotes of ICWSM-16 are Professor Lise Getoor (University of California Santa Cruz) and Assistant Professor Amir Goldberg (Stanford Graduate School of Business).
Two research papers from D-CENT have been accepted to the conference:
- When a Movement Becomes a Party: Computational Assessment of New Forms of Political Organization in Social Media (by Pablo Aragón, Yana Volkovich, David Laniado and Andreas Kaltenbrunner)
- Visualization Tool for Collective Awareness in a Platform of Citizen Proposals (by Pablo Aragón, Vicenç Gómez and Andreas Kaltenbrunner)
