Proceedings of the Sixth International Conference on Weblogs and Social Media
The social and community driven aspects of our digital lives continue to rapidly increase, resulting in transformative behaviors and, significantly, publishing and distributing huge amounts of fascinating data. The International AAAI Conference on Weblogs and Social Media meets this year in Dublin, Ireland to discuss the latest research analyzing and leveraging this resource. As you read through this proceedings, you will see that the interdisciplinary flavor of ICWSM is reflected not just in a balance in papers from several fields, but also within the contributions themselves, since many of the papers and posters demonstrate excellence in multiple areas. We believe this increasing integration reflects a new level of maturity in the field: investigators have moved beyond simply applying their trusted methods to social media topics, and have started to implement the ideas and approaches that are best suited to their research questions.
