On 11 August 2006 the academic discipline of Web Science was born with the publication of ‘Creating a Science of the Web’ in the journal Science. The paper’s authors, Tim Berners-Lee, Wendy Hall, James Hendler, Nigel Shadbolt, and Daniel Weitzner, set out their concerns about the future of the Web, and highlighted the need to establish a clear research agenda ‘aimed at understanding the current, evolving, and potential Web’. This call to action kickstarted a programme that led to the creation of the Web Science Trust, and the development of Web Science research throughout the world.
As the Web Science community comes together at WebSci’16 (our 8th ACM conference), please download our brochure, and join us in celebrating the diversity of international multidisciplinary research that has developed over the past 10 years: A Celebration of 10 Years of the Science of the Web (5.7MB pdf).
The programme for WebSci’16 (the 8th International ACM Web Science Conference) has been announced. Held between 22 – 25 May, 2016 in Hannover, Germany and organised by L3S Research Center, WebSci’16 includes keynote addresses from Professor Daniel Miller (Digital Anthropology, University College London), Dr Andrew Tomkins, (Engineering Director, Google Research), Dr Daniel Olmedilla, (Engineering Manager, Facebook), and Professor Helen Margetts (Director of the Oxford Internet Institute).

Web Science studies the vast information network of people, communities, organizations, applications, and policies that shape and are shaped by the Web, the largest artifact constructed by humans in history. Computing, physical, and social sciences come together, complementing each other in understanding how the Web affects our interactions and behaviors.
