Registration is now open for the 2021 ACM Web Science Conference: Globalisation, Inclusion and the Web in the Context of COVID.

The cost for the full week is just £50. To help ensure broad participation in the conference our Fair Access Fund has up to twenty free registrations available to the PhD Symposium (and to the whole week of conference activities) for delegates from the Global South.

The event will take place online from 21-25 June and is organised by the University of Southampton. Presenters and participants will have multiple opportunities to engage over a full week of talks, Spotlight Panels, workshops, tutorials, social events and “Meet the Authors” informal discussions

New events are being added to the programme all the time, but here are a few highlights:
On the first two days we have a number of Workshops and Tutorials that you can sign up to take part in. The wide range of topics include Data Ethics, AI and Inclusion, Data Literacy, Democratic Futures and the Web, Music as Embodied and Social Data and many more.

The main conference will then take place over the remainder of the week. We have a growing list of
speakers and accepted paper presentations. Details of other conference activities will be shared in the lead up to the event.

Although the core programme will take place primarily in European time, there will also be workshops/tutorials in India, SE Asia and the USA. All sessions will be recorded, so you don’t need to cover every time zone in one day!

We look forward to welcoming you to the second wholly online Web Science conference in June!

Best wishes
