ICWSM12: Conference on Weblogs and Social Media

The 6th International Conference on Weblogs and Social Media is definitely on my shortlist of conferences I would like to attend in 2012. It will take place from June 5 to June 8 in Dublin, Ireland. Keynote speakers include Andrew Tomkins, Patrick Meier and Lada Adamic.

The International AAAI Conference on Weblogs and Social Media (ICWSM) is a unique forum that brings together researchers from the disciplines of computer science, linguistics, communication, and the social sciences. The broad goal of ICWSM is to increase understanding of social media in all its incarnations. Submissions describing research that blends social science and computational approaches are especially encouraged.
