ESA-announce Scholarships for PhD program at UTS

Posted on 2014/02/20. Filed under: 綜合 |

Dear Colleagues:

The Economics Discipline Group (EDG) at University Technology Sydney (UTS) invites applications to its new coursework-based PhD program. The PhD program will primarily focus on microeconomics, econometrics, and their application to important market and policy design choices. The first cohort of students will begin classes in late July 2014. Please encourage your students to apply.

Financial support for incoming students is awarded competitively. Scholarship awards with a base stipend of A$25,000, and potentially an A$10,000 supplement, are available. These awards also include a tuition waiver, and are free from Australian tax. Students receiving these awards should expect to be fully funded through 3 1/2 years of the program, so long as they make good progress. Students requiring further support to complete their PhD will be eligible for funding as a teaching or research assistant.

Economics at UTS: Economics is a strategic priority of the University. It has expanded rapidly in the last few years, and we look forward to further growth. In the 2012 Australian Research Council ranking of Australian economics departments, the EDG was one of four universities in Australia to receive the top score of “5” overall. It was the only university to receive a score of 5 in the field of applied economics. The EDG has a dynamic and internationally diverse group of faculty. Later this year the EDG will move to its new home in the Gehry-designed Dr. Chau Chak Wing Building.

Sydney is a vibrant multicultural city, with a wonderful climate. It is one of the great cities of the world!

Students interested in applying to the program should contact David Goldbaum (David.Goldbaum) at their earliest convenience.

ESA-announce ACM Web Science Conference (WebSci’14), June 23-26, 2014

Posted on 2014/02/12. Filed under: 綜合 |

ACM Web Science Conference (WebSci’14), June 23-26, 2014
Bloomington, Indiana, USA / @WebSciConf / #WebSci14
Deadline for papers: Feb. 23rd 2014

Web Science is the emergent science of the people, organizations,
applications, and of policies that shape and are shaped by the Web,
the largest informational artifact constructed by humans in history.
Web Science embraces the study of the Web as a vast universal
information network of people and communities. As such, Web Science
includes the study of social networks whose work, expression, and play
take place on the Web. The social sciences and computational sciences
meet in Web Science and complement one another: Studying human
behavior and social interaction contributes to our understanding of
the Web, while Web data is transforming how social science is
conducted. The Web presents us with a great opportunity as well as an
obligation: If we are to ensure the Web benefits humanity we must do
our best to understand it.

Call for Papers

The Web Science conference is inherently interdisciplinary, as it
attempts to integrate computer and information sciences,
communication, linguistics, sociology, psychology, economics, law,
political science, philosophy, digital humanities, and other
disciplines in pursuit of an understanding of the Web. This
conference is unique in the manner in which it brings these
disciplines together in creative and critical dialogue, and we invite
papers from all the above disciplines, and in particular those that
cross traditional disciplinary boundaries.

Following the success of WebSci’09 in Athens, WebSci’10 in Raleigh,
WebSci’11 in Koblenz, WebSci ’12 in Evanston, and WebSci’13 in Paris,
for the 2014 conference we are seeking papers and posters that
describe original research, analysis, and practice in the field of Web
Science, as well as work that discusses novel and thought-provoking
ideas and works-in-progress.

Possible topics for submissions include, but are not limited to, the

* Analysis of human behavior using social media, mobile devices, and
online communities
* Methodological challenges of analyzing Web-based
* large-scale social interaction

Web Science is necessarily a very selective single track conference
with a rigorous review process. To accommodate the distinct traditions
of its many disciplines, we provide three different submission
formats: full papers, short papers, and posters. For all types of
submissions, inclusion in the ACM DL proceedings will be by default,
but not mandatory (opt-out via EasyChair). All accepted research
papers (full and short papers) will be presented during the
single-track conference. All accepted posters will be given a spot in
the single-track lightning talk session, and room to present their
papers during a dedicated poster session.

Full research papers (5 to 10 pages, ACM double column, 20 mins
presentation including Q&A)

Full research papers should present new results and original work that
has not been previously published. Research papers should present
substantial theoretical, empirical, methodological, or policy-oriented
contributions to research and/or practice.

Short research papers (up to 5 pages, ACM double column, 15 mins
presentation including Q&A)

Short research papers should present new results and original work
that has not been previously published. Research papers can present
preliminary theoretical, empirical, methodological, or policy-oriented
contributions to research and/or practice.

Posters (up to 2 pages, ACM double column, lightning talk + poster

Extended abstracts for posters, which should be in English, can be up
to 2 pages.

Submission instructions

Full and short paper and poster submissions should be formatted
according to the official ACM SIG proceedings template
( Please
make use of the ACM 1998 classification scheme
(, and submit papers using
EasyChair at

Other creative submission formats (flexible formats)

Other types of creative submissions are also encouraged, and the exact
format and style of presentation are open. Examples might include
artistic performances or installations, interactive exhibits,
demonstrations, or other creative formats. For these submissions, the
proposers should make clear both what they propose to do, and any
special requirements they would need to successfully do it (in terms
of space, time, technology, etc.)


The Web Science program committee consists of a program committee that
covers all relevant areas of Web Science. Each submission will be
refereed by three PC members and one short meta review written by a
Co-PC chair, to cover both the research background of each submission
as well as the necessary interdisciplinary aspects.

(Optional) Archival Proceedings in the ACM Digital Library

All accepted papers and posters will by default appear in the Web
Science 2014 Conference Proceedings and can also be made available
through the ACM Digital Library, in the same length and format of the
submission unless indicated otherwise (those wishing not to be indexed
and archived can "opt out" of the proceedings).
