CFP - The Third International Workshop on Weblogging Ecosystems

CFP: 3rd International Workshop on the Weblogging Ecosystem (WWE 2006)
Edinburgh, UK
May 22 or 23rd (TBD) at the WWW 2006 conference

Paper submission deadline: March 10, 2006
Author Notification: April 3, 2006

The weblogging community continues to evolve: weblogs are gaining more and more exposure, the number of bloggers continues to grow and the contribution of individual bloggers is becoming significant and compelling. The dynamics of the blogosphere, found in trackbacks, citation links, blog-rolls, comments, tags, shared topics and interests provides a facinating domain of study for researchers from all academic and commercial fields including text mining, social network analysis, computational linguistics, business and marketing intelligence, library sciences, taxonometrics, graph theory and data visualization.

The workshop will build on the success of the previous two meetings, bringing together researchers from these diverse areas, working in both academic and commercial settings: contributors with a keen interest in an area with increasing technological, social, political and cultural impact. In addition to a regular track of research presentations, this year's workshop will feature the first ever weblog research data release. This data release will allow researchers access to a large coherent body of weblog post data for a specific time period. Researchers are encouraged to use this data set in the presentation of their research results at the workshop. We plan to compile the papers that focus on this data set into a book which will present an exciting view of a specific period of blogosphere history.

Areas of Interest
The weblogging phenomenon represents an exciting opportunity for many fields of research. Papers submitted to this workshop should be focus on one or more of the following topics:

Data Challange
Much of the interest in research relating to weblogs involves the analysis of large quantities of data. As part of this workshop, we are very excited to provide a data set to the research community. The aim is to encourage the use of this data to focus the various views and analyses of the blogosphere over a common space. This will provide a unique opportunity to compare different views of the blogosphere and to stimulate interesting discussion and collaboration. As a result of this exercise, we plan to publish a book containing the collected data challange papers.

The data release comprises a complete set of weblog posts for three weeks in July 2005 (on the order of 10M posts). This data set has been selected as it spans a period of time during which an event of global significance occurred, namely the London bombings.

The data set includes the full content of the posts plus mark-up. The marked-up fields include: date of posting, time of posting, author name, title of the post, weblog url, permalink, tags/categories, and outlinks classified by type - details may be found at the workshop homepage (see above).

Intelliseek, Inc. will facilitate the distribution of the data. To obtain a copy of the data, sign and fax the datashare individual agreement form to Intelliseek.

Paper Submission and Review
Please see the website for submission details.

Papers submitted to the workshop will undergo a peer review process overseen by the workshop co-chairs. Each paper will be reviewed by at least two program commitee members. Accepted papers will be presented at the workshop by one of the authors and will be published in the WWW-2006 Workshops CD-ROM and online. Papers should not exceed 5000 words (approximately 12 pages) in length and must be submitted in PDF. Short papers (up to 6 pages) describing early research results are also welcome.
