The WebScience 2013 conference, held in Paris and organised by the University of Southampton was an academic gathering of the world’s leading thinkers from a number of fields including computing, social science, law, economics, philosophy and psychology.
There was a wide range of keynote addresses, a selection of workshops and a fringe programme to explore ideas surrounding
- Social Networks,
- Understanding online communities,
- Analysing the human interactions inherent in social media,
- Developing “accountability” and other mechanisms for enhancing privacy and trust on the Web.
The podcast was created to provide a flavour of the content.
