Welcome to the Web Science Trust

The Web Science Trust (WST) is a UK registered charity, established in 2009, with the aim of supporting the global development of Web Science. The Web Science Trust has established an international network (WSTNet), bringing together world-class research laboratories to support the Web Science research and education programme.

The origins of the Web Science Trust can be found in the Web Science Research Initiative (WSRI) which was established in 2006. Now in 2018, we have assembled 20 world-class international research groups, founded a Summer School which is held in a different location each year, and run a series of international teaching and research events including an ACM Web Science conference now in its 10th year.
