The International World Wide Web Conference (WWW) is an annual international conference focused on the future direction of the World Wide Web. This year, WWW 2014 will be held at Seoul, the heart of the Korean culture and education, as well as politics and economics. In recognition and support of the aims, values, and achievements of Web Science as a novel interdisciplinary research field, WWW 2014 will feature a Web Science Track.

Web Science focuses on the analysis and design of Web architecture and applications, as well as studies of the people, organizations, and policies that shape and are shaped by the Web. Accordingly, Web Science embraces the study of the Web as a vast information network of people and communities. It also includes the study of people and communities using the digital records of user activity mediated by the Web. An understanding of human behavior and social interaction can contribute to our understanding of the Web, and data obtained from the Web can contribute to our understanding of human behavior and social interaction.

All track papers will be published in the companion proceedings of the WWW conference.
A special issue of the Journal of Web Science ( will be published with extended versions of selected papers from this track.

This track focuses on all aspects of Web Science. Papers that demonstrate interdisciplinary work will be particularly welcomed.
