It is not too late to book your place in Paris :-)

The Web demands new ways of working across traditional academic disciplines. Web Science builds skills and expertise in the technical underpinnings of the Web, the social processes that have shaped its evolution, and the impact of the Web on society. The presentations at #WebSci13 will address these contemporary issues across a wide range of applications from healthcare to cybersecurity.

While the deadlines for presenting have now passed, registrations from businesses, academics, policy makers and students who would like to attend the event are most welcome.

Some of the highlights you can expect at the Conference are:

Day 1 – Thursday 2nd May

Keynotes from Vint Cerf,  co-inventor of TCP/IP and “Father of the Internet”, and Cory Doctorow, novelist, technology activist and co-editor of the popular weblog Boing Boing. There will also be paper presentations on a wide range of cutting edge Web Science projects,  a lively Pecha Kucha session of short sharp talks and an evening Reception.

Day 2 – Friday 3rd May

A full day of poster sessions, papers and panels – followed by an evening banquet on the Seine.

Day 3 – Saturday 4th May

Debate how the web is revolutionising society, and the event concludes with a final selection of papers.

A draft programme is now available
