Call for Posters

WebSci’18 will feature a large plenary poster session along with a reception on the afternoon of Monday 28 May. The aim of the poster session is to create a lively and engaged discussion maximising the opportunities for early-stage ideas exchange and interdisciplinary discussion on emerging or novel ideas/research. To achieve this we are seeking 1-2 page poster proposals that will be reviewed by the WebSci’18 Poster Chairs in the light of the above-mentioned poster session aims.

The Web Science conference welcomes participation from all disciplines including, but not limited to, art, computer and information sciences, communication, economics, humanities, informatics, law, linguistics, philosophy, political science, psychology, and sociology, in pursuit of an understanding of the Web. This conference is unique in bringing these disciplines together in creative and critical dialogue. We particularly welcome contributions that seek to cross traditional disciplinary boundaries.
