Workshop Description

The weblogging community continues to evolve: weblogs are gaining more and more exposure, the number of bloggers continues to grow and the contribution of individual bloggers is becoming significant and compelling. The dynamics of the blogosphere, found in trackbacks, citation links, blog-rolls, comments, tags, shared topics and interests provides a facinating domain of study for researchers from all academic and commercial fields including text mining, social network analysis, computational linguistics, business and marketing intelligence, libarary sciences, taxonometrics, graph theory and data visualization.

The workshop builds on the success of the previous two meetings, bringing together researchers from these diverse areas, working in both academic and commercial settings: contributors with a keen interest in an area with increasing technological, social, political and cultural impact.

The workshop will be held in conjuction with WWW-2006, the 15th Annual International World Wide Web conference.
