Dear AAAI Members,

Please join us for the Seventh International AAAI Conference on Weblogs and Social Media (ICWSM 2013), to be held July 8-11, 2013 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Microsoft Research in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. Registration is available via and the deadline to qualify for the early registration fee is Friday, May 10. This unique forum brings together researchers working at the nexus of computer science and the social sciences, with work drawing upon network science, machine learning, computational linguistics, sociology and communication. The broad goal of ICWSM is to increase understanding of social media in all its incarnations. This conference, now in its seventh year, has become one of the premier venues for social scientists and technologists to gather and discuss cutting-edge research in social media.

The program will feature keynote addresses by David Lazer (Northeastern University) on "The Challenges and Opportunities in Bridging Computer Science and Social Science in Studying Social Media" and Fernanda Viégas and Martin Wattenberg on "Visualizing Social Weather and Climate," as well as 92 full paper, poster and demo presentations.

A Workshops and Tutorials program will be held on the last day of the conference, Thursday, July 11.

T1: Advanced Methods for Collecting Social Science Data in the Social Media Field (Riki Conrey)
T2: Information-Theoretic Tools for Social Media Analysis (Greg Ver Steeg and Aram Galstyan)
T3: Crisis Mapping, Citizen Sensing, and Social Media Analytics: Leveraging Citizen Roles for Crisis Response (Amit Sheth, Patrick Meier, Carlos Castillo, and Hemant Purohit)
T4: Multiple Network Models for Complex Online Social Network Analysis (Matteo Magnani and Luca Rossi)
T5: Pulse of Virtual Worlds: Behavioral Mining and SNA in Massive Online Games (Muhammad Ahmad and Jaideep Srivastava)

Workshop participants will have the opportunity to meet and discuss issues with a selected focus - providing an informal setting for active exchange among researchers, developers and users on topics of current interest. The Workshop Program includes the following workshops:

W1: Computational Personality Recognition (Shared Task)

W2: Social Computing For Workforce 2.0

W3: SocMedVis 2013: Social Media Visualization

W4: When the City Meets the Citizen Workshop
