Call For Papers

2009 in Athens, 2010 in Southampton, 2011 in Koblenz, 2012 in Evanston and 2013 in Paris: Web Science curriculum and education workshops have become a regular gathering point for all members of the Web Science community involved in organizing courses and programs on Web education in their institutions. From the fundamentals of the Web Science Curriculum to the experiences of “Teaching the Web”, these workshops have been well-attended, valuable and valued occasions to share practical experiences, discuss innovative ideas on interdisciplinary teaching and exchange opinions on contents and practices.

This year’s workshop has the following objectives:
* To bring together researchers and members of the Web Science community involved in Web Science education: teachers, tutors, program coordinators, content designers and students, to have them present their programs, their courses, their teaching material and their experience with Web Science education.
* The creation and design of a collaborative platform to manage information, resources, teacher’s training, exchange of students or teachers, events, etc.
