Making Sense of Microposts (#Microposts2015)

Big things come in small packages

Submission Info

Workshop Structure

A keynote address from an invited speaker will open the day. This will be followed by paper presentations for the main track and, new this year, the Social Sciences track. We will hold a poster and demo session to trigger further, more in-depth interaction between workshop participants. The workshop will terminate with brief presentations of the outcomes of the ' IE Challenge', sponsored by SpazioDati.

Submission is via the EasyChair Conference System. Where a submission includes additional material submission should be made as a single, unencrypted zip file that includes a plain text file listing its contents.

Each submission will receive, in addition to a meta-review, at least 2 peer reviews, with full papers at least 3 peer reviews.


Note also, while we will publish our proceedings with CEUR, the same publication conditions apply as for all proceedings included in the WWW conference companion:
Any paper published by the ACM, IEEE, etc. which can be properly cited constitutes research which must be considered in judging the novelty of a WWW submission, whether the published paper was in a conference, journal, or workshop. Therefore, any paper previously published as part of a WWW workshop must be referenced and suitably extended with new content to qualify as a new submission to the Research Track at the WWW conference.
Note however that this caveat does not apply to extended abstracts submitted to the special Social Sciences track, summarising or discussing previously published work or presenting position statements.

WWW 2015 conference organisers require at least one author to register for the workshop only or the full conference per submission.
