BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – It’s the birthday bash of the summer as the robots turn five at this year’s Ready, Set, Robots! technology workshop for teens.
We are pleased to offer a cash prize of at least $1000 to be split among the
winning entries. Winners will be announced and displayed at the
WebScience conference in June 2014, presented on the WebScience
website, and the winners will be encouraged to present a poster at the
conference describing their work. The entries will be judged based on
four criteria: (1) innovative use of data, (2) clarity of
visualization, (3) quality of design, and (4) potential impact.
We are delighted to announce the Web Science 2014 Visualization
Web Science is the emergent science of the people, organizations,
applications, and of policies that shape and are shaped by the Web,
the largest informational artifact constructed by humans in history.
Web Science embraces the study of the Web as a vast universal
information network of people and communities. As such, Web Science
includes the study of social networks whose work, expression, and play
take place on the Web. The social sciences and computational sciences
meet in Web Science and complement one another: Studying human
behavior and social interaction contributes to our understanding of
the Web, while Web data is transforming how social science is
conducted. The Web presents us with a great opportunity as well as an
obligation: If we are to ensure the Web benefits humanity we must do
our best to understand it.
We are now accepting late-breaking extended abstract submissions (2 pages) for posters and "lightning talk" presentations, until 23 March.
