Call For Papers

The rapid creation and consumption of social media content continues to drive the evolution of the Internet and the Web. Social media content now accounts for the majority of content published daily on the web.

As the space evolves, researcher and industrial practitioners find themselves at a key point for collaborating on research, implementation and deployment of a wide range of analyses and applications. The International Conference on Weblogs and Social Media invites researchers in the broad field of social media analysis to submit papers for its second meeting. Following in the tradition of earlier workshops and the first meeting in Boulder, USA in 2007, we anticipate an exciting, high quality event which will bring together academic and industrial practitioners to present and to discuss new research, applications, thoughts and ideas that are shaping the future of social media analysis.
