**** Submission ****
Web Science 2015 is a very selective conference with a rigorous review 
process. To accommodate the distinct traditions of its many disciplines, 
we allow for three different paper submission formats: full papers, 
short papers, and extended abstracts.

Full papers are 8-10 pages long, ACM double column. Full papers should 
present new and substantial theoretical, empirical, methodological, or 
policy-oriented contributions to research and/or practice. Full papers 
include an abstract, an introduction, sections and about 30 references. 
Full papers should be original work that has not been previously 
published.

Short papers are 3-5 pages long, ACM double column. Short papers should 
present new and substantial theoretical, empirical, methodological, or 
policy-oriented contributions to research and/or practice. Short papers 
should include an abstract, an introductory paragraph and about 20 
references. Short papers should be original work that has not been 
previously published.

Extended abstracts are ~ 2 pages long, ACM double column. Extended 
abstracts present new research of broad significance for the WebSci 
community. Extended abstracts include about 10 references.

Full and short papers could be assigned to any of the three presentation 
modes—long talk, short talk and poster. Extended abstracts will be 
assigned to the poster sessions. The final mode of presentation will be 
determined by qualities of the paper like maturity of research, strength 
of argument, interdisciplinary approach and impetus to spur further 
work. Senior chairs may decide to recommend extended abstracts of 
particular relevance to short talks.

All types of accepted submissions will be included in the proceedings, 
which will be archived by the Association for Computing Machinery 
Digital Library. However, to accommodate publication habits of different 
scientific communities, we allow authors to opt out of having their 
contribution appear in the proceedings.

We will organize a special issue of The Journal of Web Science. Authors 
of selected full and short papers and extended abstracts will be 
contacted and invited to submit a full-length journal paper for the 
special issue. All the papers invited to this submission will go through 
a peer-review process before receiving final approval.

**** IMPORTANT DATES ****

February 1, 2016 (Monday), Intention to Submit: Intentions to submit 
short papers, long papers or extended abstracts must be indicated by 
submitting a very short abstract on EasyChair 
(https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=websci16). These intentions to 
submit are used to assign reviewers before final submission. Without 
"intention to submit" by February 1 submissions of long papers, short 
papers or extended abstracts cannot be accepted.

February 8, 2016 ( Monday), Submission of long papers, short papers, 
extended Abstracts: PDFs of these submissions must be uploaded by this 
date.

March 18, 2016 ( Friday), Notification: Acceptances and rejections of 
long papers, short papers and extended abstracts are sent out.

April 15, 2016 ( Friday), Camera-ready: Presenters who do not opt out of 
having their contribution appear in the proceedings must upload the 
camera-ready copy of their paper to EasyChair by this date.

*************************** Call for Workshop Proposals 
**********************

In a world increasingly connected by the Web, the divide between online 
and offline is blurrier than ever. The Web serves as global newspaper, 
television station, marketplace, agora, or museum. As a great deal of 
social interaction moves online, the Internet promises researchers a 
portal into the social life of humanity. Furthermore, the Internet 
promises not only insight into, but also a full transformation of social 
life.

Despite the prevalent impression of Internet saturation that may prevail 
in many developed societies, the majority of humans are still offline. 
New Internet users experience the Web through radically different and 
diverse mobile interfaces. Although many digital prophets promised a 
world where place and class would be irrelevant, the Internet has not 
freed us from geography or social inequality: the “digital divide” is 
alive and well, with socially-disadvantaged people often having dismal 
access to the Internet.

It is thus important for scholars of the Internet to take a reasoned, 
critical view of the Web. We call for discussion around the ways in 
which the Web as a platform, as well as Web Science, can help address 
global challenges. To this end we invite workshop proposals for the 2016 
edition of the ACM WebSci conference, on topics such as, but not limited 
to:

-The Web and Geography
-The Mobile Revolution and Web Science
-Web Science and Social Good
-Digital Inequalities on the Web
-The Internet in recent Middle-Eastern History
-Crime on the Web and Security

We encourage proposals on the above topics, and likewise welcome 
submissions on already-established areas of focus for ACM WebSci such 
as:

-Digital Humanities
-Web Architecture and Organization
-Collective Intelligence
-Social Network Analysis
-Data Ethics, Privacy and Security
-Statistics on the Web
Workshops can have a mixture of panel presentations and invited 
speakers, but presentations should reflect the diversity of approaches 
that characterise the multidisciplinary nature of Web Science.

### Workshop submission ###
Workshop proposals should contain the following information:

-Title summarising the tutorial goals or workshop theme.
-Name and affiliations of the organizers.
-Details of the organising/program committee, including names and 
institutional affiliations and -whether they have accepted to 
participate.
-Max two-page description about the relevance, motivation and goals of 
the workshop, as well as pointers to past editions, if any.
-Schedule of sessions, panels, and talks, including if it is a half- or 
full-day workshop.
-Names of potential invited speakers with an indication of whether they 
have accepted the preliminary invitation.
-Selection criteria for papers to be presented if the workshop invites 
submissions.

It is the prerogative of organisers to decide whether to have an open 
call for participants and papers, or arrange panels by invitation only. 
Proposals should include as many details as possible about sessions, 
speakers, and talks: they will be evaluated by their coherence and 
ability to address the stated goals.
It is the responsibility of the organisers to advertise their event, and 
constitute a program committee to review and select papers and manage 
the review process if they wish to include paper presentations in their 
workshop.
If successful, we advise proposals to have a website describing the 
event (within three weeks of acceptance). Workshop websites will be 
linked to from the main conference site.
Proposals should be submitted in pdf format via email to 
[log in to unmask]

### Publication of Workshop Submissions ###
Submissions to the proposed workshops may be included in the WebSci 
proceedings, or workshop organizers may choose to not publish their 
submissions. If the workshop proceedings are to be included in the 
conference proceedings then the camera-ready deadline (see below) must 
be adhered too.

### Workshop proposal review ###

The Web Science programme chairs will review each submission and select 
those with the highest scores on originality, timeliness and relevance 
of the proposed topic, its interdisciplinarity, rigour of the review 
process, coherence with the conference aims, and potential to attract a 
large audience.

**************************************  CALL FOR TUTORIALS  
**************************************
TUTORIALS AT WEB SCIENCE 2016 (www.websci16.org)

Submission Deadline: December 1, 2015
Proposal Submission Email: [log in to unmask]
Notification of acceptance: December 10, 2015
Tutorials will be held on 22 May 2016 in Hannover, Germany.

WebSci is seeking proposals for tutorials about tools, techniques, and 
research methodologies that allow Web Scientists to analyze and 
understand phenomena on the Web. Given the interdisciplinary nature of 
the WebSci community, consisting of experts in Computer Science, Social 
Science and Engineering, we specifically aim for tutorials which either 
introduce technical topics, methods and tools to a non-technical 
audience or present social science methods and theories to a more 
technical audience. Tutorials may provide, for instance, an in depth 
look at an emerging technique, method or software package or a broad 
summary of an important direction in the field.
The tutorial format will be entirely determined by the tutorial 
organizers. We will favor tutorials embed hands-on experiences, 
collaborative approaches, and interactivity above tutorials that provide 
only frontal lectures. We are looking for contributions from experts 
from different disciplines such as social science, computer science, 
physics and economics.

PROPOSAL CONTENT AND FORMAT
Proposals for tutorials should be no more than four (4) pages in length 
(10pt, single column, with reasonable margins), written in English, and 
should include the following:
Tutorial title and summary. A short description (500 words max) of the 
scope main objective of the tutorial that will be published on the main 
WebSci website.
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 four co-organizers.
Duration. The tutorial duration can range between two hours to the full 
day, depending on the type of activities scheduled. The Tutorial Chair 
might conditionally accept a proposal and suggest a different duration 
to best fit the organization of the whole event.
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. The tutor(s) for each activity should be specified as well.
Target audience, prerequisites and outcomes. A description of the target 
audience, the prerequisite skill set for the attendee as well as a list 
of goals for the tutor to accomplish by the end of the tutorial.
Expected number of attendees. This is required for logistics planning.
Material available on the tutorial website. The organizers of accepted 
tutorials are encouraged to set up on their own a web page containing 
all the information for the tutorial attendees before the tutorial day. 
The proposal should contain a detailed list of the material that will be 
made available on the website.
Precedent [when available]: 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.
Special requirements [when needed]: A list of equipment and that needs 
to be made available by conference organizers (other than wifi, a 
projector, and a regular workshop room setup).
