Call For Papers
We have witnessed the emergence of a new revolution: `The Web Revolution', which has resulted in the globalization of information access and publishing. World wide web researchers and practitioners face new technical challenges in advancing the world wide web technology from the globalization of access to the globalization of computing.

World Wide Web: Internet and Web Information Systems (WWW) is an international, archival, peer-reviewed journal which covers all aspects of the World Wide Web, including issues related to architectures, applications, Internet and Web information systems, and communities. The purpose of this journal is to provide an international forum for researchers, professionals, and industrial practitioners to share their rapidly developing knowledge and report on new advances in Internet and web-based systems. The journal also focuses on all database- and information-system topics that relate to the Internet and the Web, particularly on ways to model, design, develop, integrate, and manage these systems.

Appearing quarterly, the journal publishes (1) papers describing original ideas and new results, (2) vision papers, (3) reviews of important techniques in related areas, (4) innovative application papers, and (5) progress reports on major international research projects. Papers published in the WWW journal deal with subjects directly or indirectly related to the World Wide Web. The WWW journal provides timely, in-depth coverage of the most recent developments in the World Wide Web discipline to enable anyone involved to keep up-to-date with this dynamically changing technology.

The WWW journal topical coverage includes, but is not restricted to, the following subjects as they relate to the World Wide Web:

Application program interfaces
Authoring tools and environments
Browsing and navigation techniques and tools
Collaborative learning and work
Computer-based training and teaching
Content mark-up languages, such as XML

In addition to the above Internet- and Web-specific topics, the WWW journal also encourages research work on all fundamental issues relating to database and information systems for the Internet and Web. The following are some sample topics of interest when they are addressed within the context of the Internet and Web:

Database and information systems support for cooperative work
Data mining and warehousing
Data models and meta-data management
Information retrieval
Interoperability and heterogeneous information systems
Multimedia database and information systems

Special Issues
Special Issue on Geo-Social Computing
Submission Date: 2017-10-28

This special issue aims to publish research work that covers the full spectrum of geo-social computing including theoretical, empirical, algorithms, models and design research contributions. The rapid development of Web 2.0, location acquisition and wireless communication technologies has fostered a pro-fusion of geo-social networks, such as location-based social networks (LBSNs) and event-based social networks (EBSNs). LBSNs (e.g., Foursquare, Yelp and Google Place) provide users an online platform to check-in at points of interests (e.g., cinemas, galleries and hotels) and share their life experiences in the physical world via mobile devices. The new dimension of geographical location implies extensive knowledge about an individual's behaviors and interests by bridging the gap between online social networks and the physical world. Moreover, newly emerging EBSNs (e.g., Meetup and Plancast) enable users to check-in and share more specific activities/events held in the physical world, ranging from informal get-togethers (e.g., movie nights and dining out) to formal activities (e.g., culture salons and business meetings). Despite the explosion of interest in social computing, this is the first time to call for papers on geo-social computing. Compared with traditional social computing that only focuses on the social perspective, Geo-Social Computing introduces a new paradigm combining spatial and social dimension. Geo-social computing is fundamentally about computing methods and techniques to understand, model, and facilitate both the social interactions between people and the physical interactions between people and spatial items (e.g., POIs and events). It will bring many benefits to the improved decision making, accurate mobile targeted advertisement, trip planning, richer collaborations, and enhanced problem solving capabilities through a better understanding of human behavior and social interaction in interpersonal, organizational, and societal settings. We welcome submissions that focus on various computation methods and models to exploit and explore the geo-social data generated by both users and GPS devices. Potential topics include but are not limited to the following: - User Profiling - Location-based recommendation - POI Recommendation - Event Recommendation - Community discovery - Social Link Prediction/Friend Recommendation - Information Diffusion in geo-social network - User Mobility Analysis and Modeling - User Linkage Across platforms or devices - Influence Maximization in geo-social networks - Inferring locations of user homes - Inferring Locations of user generated contents (e.g., images, videos and posts) - Collective intelligence - Sentiment Analysis - Spatial data analysis and mining - Team Formation and Collaboration
