WWW2017 will feature a number of workshops that are intended to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners in web technologies to discuss and exchange positions on current and emergent web topics.


Workshop participants will exchange ideas and experience, establish common ground in research areas or practical problems, and hopefully identify new opportunities for collaboration and new directions for future activity.

The workshops will take place at the conference venue, the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre, on Monday 3 April and Tuesday 4 April, 2017. Fourteen full day and seven half day workshops have been accepted. Where available, a workshop website has been linked to the title, webpages are available for a number of authors, and a brief description provided about the workshop. More of these will be added as they become available.

Workshops will be scheduled so as to avoid conflicts with conference sessions in similar or related areas. A tentative schedule has been set out below. The exact schedule will be released closer to the conference date.

Accepted workshops:

Monday 3 April - Full day

(TempWeb2017): 7th Temporal Web Analytics Workshop

Marc Spaniol, Ricardo Baeza-Yates and Julien Masanes.

(SAVE-SD2017): Semantics, Analytics and Visualisation: Enhancing Scholarly Data

Alejandra Gonzalez-Beltran, Francesco Osborne and Silvio Peroni.

(SNOW2017): 4th Workshop on Social News on the Web
The Web has generated an epochal change in the way we consume news, disrupting the journalism industry by changing the news cycle that leads professional journalists to build news and casual news readers to consume it. With the Web being the largest public data repository in the world, new tools need to be developed for journalists to verify hypotheses, link events and support claims, thus providing readers with filtered, high-quality content relevant to their interest and giving rise to a new form of data-driven journalism.

Gianmarco De Francisci Morales, Luca Maria Aiello, Symeon Papadopoulos and Haewoon Kwak.

(WS-REST2017): 8th International Workshop on Web APIs and Service Architecture

Erik Wilde, Mike Amundsen and Ronnie Mitra.

(LDOW2017): 10th International Workshop on Linked Data on the Web

Monday 3 April - Half day - morning

(GoNativeAds 2017): Going Native with Ads on the Web
Native ad marketplaces - one of the fastest growing businesses of the online advertising market - serve users with ads that are rendered to resemble the surrounding native content. Native ads are considered less intrusive and usually provide better user experience than other ad types. The objective of this workshop is to focus on the Native ads marketplace, its unique characterisation, and consider the research and engineering challenges it poses.

Michal Aharon, Fabrizio Silvestri and Oren Somekh.

Monday 3 April - Half day - afternoon

(AW4city2017): 3rd International ACM Smart City Workshop-Enhancing Livability with Web Applications for Smart Cities
AW4city 2017 will address web-based applications and Apps’ design and development in the smart city and urban context. It will focus on innovative applications and their implementation on the web for Smart Cities. It will address the impact of the economy; mobility; the environment; quality of life; people; and governance with an emphasis on the contribution of web applications and Apps to city livability. AW4City 2017 will address increasing criticism that the smart city represents an ambiguous urban utopia.

Leonidas Anthopoulos, Marijn Janssen and Vishanth Weerakkody.

Tuesday 4 April - Full day

(LD-DL2017): 1st Workshop on Linked Data and Distributed Ledgers

Luis-Daniel Ibáñez, Elena Simperl, Fabien Gandon and John Domingue.

(LocWeb2017): 7th International Workshop on Location and the Web
LocWeb is firmly at the intersection of location-based services and Web architecture. Its focus lies in Web-scale services and systems facilitating location-aware information access. This broad issue covers information access, semantics and standards, and Web-scale systems and services. New application areas for Web architecture, such as the Internet of Things will lead to increasingly rich and large sets of applications for which location is highly relevant - a subject that will continue to provide challenging research questions into the future.

Dirk Ahlers and Erik Wilde.

Tuesday 4 April - Half day - morning

(SST2017): Sustainability and Smart Technology Workshop
In this workshop we introduce the terms sustainability, smart technology, Green IT, and Cloud Computing; identify their advantages and disadvantages; and examine sustainability awareness. This workshop seeks to ask researchers, educators, businesses and individuals to think about: What is sustainability; Why is it important? How to be a sustainable person or business; and Why is it essential to use green technology?

Tomayess Issa.

(IWSC2017): 1st International Workshop on Social Computing
The goal of this workshop is to invent new techniques and approaches to explain user-to-user relationships in the physical world based on their cyber information. This is important for industries seeking to extract useful data and build their knowledge bases to improve their business service quality, especially when the data is big and complex. The workshop will encourage researchers to invent efficient data processing techniques and to discover new and valuable knowledge, thus triggering new questions for researchers.
