The Seventh International AAAI Conference on Weblogs and Social Media (ICWSM-13) was held at the MIT Media Lab and Microsoft in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA, July 8–11, 2013. This unique forum brought together researchers from the disciplines of computer science, linguistics, communication, and the social sciences. The broad goal of ICWSM is to increase understanding of social media in all its incarnations. Submissions describing research that blends social science and computational approaches were especially encouraged.
In addition to the usual program of contributed technical talks, posters, and invited presentations, the main conference included a selection of keynote talks from prominent social scientists and technologists. The very successful workshop and tutorial programs also continued on the first day of the conference, Monday, July 8.
