The Web and social media are growing both in size and complexity, as well as playing an increasing role in our lives. Finding relevant, timely and trustworthy content in a sea of seemingly irrelevant chatter remains a challenging research issue. On one hand, this workshop deals with the more blatant and malicious attempts that deteriorate web quality such as spam, plagiarism, or various forms of abuse and ways to prevent them or neutralize their impact on users' experience. On the other hand, it will also provide a venue for exchanging ideas on quantifying and modeling issues of content quality, credibility and author reputation.
The objective of the workshop is to provide the research communities working on web quality topics with a survey of current problems and potential solutions. It presents an opportunity for close interaction between researchers and practitioners who may be focused on isolated sub-areas. We also want to gather crucial feedback for the academic community from participants representing major industry players on how web content quality research can contribute to practice.


The workshop will provide the research communities working on web quality, web spam, abuse, credibility, and reputation topics with a survey of current problems and potential solutions. We solicit the following types of submissions on any aspect of web content quality:

* Full papers, describing contributions to the field, and
* Short papers, presenting work in progress.

Particular areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

Assessing the credibility of content and people on the web and social media
* Measuring quality of web content
* Uncovering distorted and biased content
* Modeling author identity, trust, and reputation
* Role of groups and communities
* Multimedia content credibility

Fighting spam, abuse, and plagiarism on the Web and social media
* Reducing web spam
* Reducing abuses of electronic messaging systems
* Detecting abuses in internet advertising
* Uncovering plagiarism and multiple-identity issues
* Promoting cooperative behavior in social networks
* Security issues with online communication

Other topics are listed on the workshop website.

Full papers are limited to 8 pages, while short papers to 4 pages. Papers should be in English, formatted according to the ACM style guide ") and submitted via .
The accepted papers will appear in ACM Digital Library.
