The Web Science Summer School 2018 (WWSSS'18) will be held in Hannover, 
Germany. It is hosted by L3S Research Center and will take place from 
30.07.18 till 04.08.18.

Web Science is the emergent study of the people and technologies, 
applications, processes and practices that shape and are shaped by the 
World Wide Web. Web Science requires mining and understanding data from 
the Web, requiring both technical skills for handling big (Web) data as 
well as fundamental understanding of the social, psychological or legal 
aspects underpinning online activities.

The WWSSS'18 will address the inter-disciplinary field of Web Science by 
focusing on lectures which tackle the aforementioned challenges in 
topics such as data science and data mining, big data processing, 
information retrieval, Web governance as well as the sociology and 
psychology of online interactions.

(http://wwsss18.webscience.org/index.php/schedule/)

The program includes keynote talks from prominent researchers in Web 
Science. Alongside lectures from experienced researchers, that will 
address major trends in Web Science, the Summer School will provide 
hands-on training in data processing, analysis and methods, team work, 
and opportunities to present current research. Participants shall work 
on specific tasks linked to the datasets provided, and will be mentored 
by local instructors. All teams will present the results of their work 
on the last day of the school.
