===================================================
2nd International workshop on Building Web Observatories (B-WOW), 23rd June 2014
https://sites.google.com/site/bwebobs14
co-located with the ACM Web Science Conference 2014, Bloomington Indiana, 2014 - http://www.websci14.org(http://www.websci14.org/)
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 20 April 2014 23.59 CET

Building upon the success of the first International “Building Web Observatories Workshop” (BWEBOBS) at Web Science 2013, B-WOW2014 aims to examine the

challenges of interoperability and distributed analytics across the growing number of Web Observatories.

This workshop will examine the potential of interlinking existing and emerging Web Observatories, offering the potential as a global network of heterogeneous

data, analytic and visual repositories across a range of topics and disciplinary perspectives. Web Observatories can provide vital tools for observing the

complex interactions and correlations across different locations, topics and systems in an attempt to deliver insight into the socio-technical interactions

between human beings and the Web.

===================================================
TOPICS
===================================================

This workshop aims to bring together researchers involved in building Web Observatories to discuss opportunities, challenges and best practices, as well as

guidelines for Web Observatory interoperability.

We invite long papers to consider the following topics:

• Best practice on deploying and managing Web Observatories.
• Challenges in harvesting, cataloguing and discovering datasets and on the Web.
• Functional aspects of Web Observatories and of interoperability challenges for datasets and analytics.
• Description and cataloguing of datasets and analytic tools to be available through discoverable catalogs.
• Performance and optimisation of analytics across distributed and/or heterogeneous datasets.
• Reports, Presentations, Experiences and Tools from building observatories to inform best practice.

We also invite short papers on the topics of:

• Challenges in harvesting, cataloguing and discovering datasets and on the Web.
• Description and cataloguing of datasets and analytic tools to be available through discoverable catalogs.

===================================================
SUBMISSION
===================================================

* Full papers can be a maximum of 8 pages including references
* Short papers, ongoing work can be up to 3 pages, with an additional page of references.

All accepted papers will be included in the online proceedings. Authors of selected papers (independent on submission type) will be invited to give a 10

minute presentation and sit on a panel; there will be two panels, one for each of the above areas.

Papers need to be in LNCS format and they should be submitted at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=bwebobs14

All accepted position papers will be included in the online proceedings and their authors will be invited to provide a poster, which will be presented in the

area outside the workshop rooms during the break.

Authors of selected papers will be invited to give a 10 minute presentation as part of a series of panel sessions.
