The Second International Conference on Weblogs and Social Media (ICWSM-08) was held March 30–April 2, 2008, at the Hilton Seattle Downtown, Seattle, Washington.
The rapid creation and consumption of social media content continue 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, researchers 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 invited 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, ICWSM was an exciting, high-quality event that brought together academic and industrial practitioners to present and discuss new research, applications, thoughts, and ideas that are shaping the future of social media analysis.
