** 2nd Workshop on Web Science “Open Data and Open Communities” **

   Co-located with INFORMATIK2011, KI2011, MATES 2011
   *4th-10th of Oct 2011, Berlin, Germany*


In this 2nd Web Science Workshop (WSW) we aim to bring researchers,
developers and practitioners together to discuss the current state of
Web Science and individual aspects of this growing research area. In
particular, we aim to broaden the discussion by considering recently
emerging topics such as Open Data, ICT support for policy analysis and
modelling as well as Web-based citizen involvement in E-Government. In
addition, with this workshop specifically address the areas of
Computational Network Analysis, Web Intelligence, Social Computing and
Semantic Web.

  techniques, for example to enhance the mainly structure-based network
  analysis by semantic information
* Novel visualization techniques for topic related data
* Information diffusion on the Web
* Web and Web application governance
* Open Governmental Data - employing Data Web technologies to bring
  citizens and governments closer together
* Technology support for policy modeling, e.g. spatial planning
