Welcome to the ICWSM 2010 Blog!

As in past years, we will be using this space for announcements.

For ICWSM 2010, we've got a wonderful venue at George Washington University, and we've got the beginnings of a great technical program. We were lucky to get two great speakers for our keynote talks - Michael Kearns of U Penn and Bob Kraut of CMU. Departing from tradition, our third invited talk will be replaced by an hour-long invited session featuring talks by three prominent social scientists James Pennebaker (Dept Psychology, U Texas), Nicole Ellison (Dept Telecomm, Mich State), and S. Craig Watkins (Dept Radio, TV, Film, U Texas). As in previous years, we're looking forward to a panel discussion - this time with three speakers that will discuss the role of social media in government (and vice versa): Macon Phillips, teh Head of New Media in the White House; Don Burke, who developed the CIA's Intellipedia project; and Haym Hirsh, the director of NSF's IIS division. We also have a strong tutorial program lined up (details will follow), and as in past years, there will be an ICWSM data challenge and corresponding workshop.

Of course, what we really need to make the conference successful will be technical contributions from all of you! The paper submission site is already open, and will be open through January 8th. We're hoping for another excellent crop of strong submissions this year.If you are a prospective author, be warned that is deadline is firm. If you're on the PC, we will be opening bidding for papers as soon as possible after the 8th.
