Web Science Conference 2009 – Society On-Line is the first conference devoted to the scientific study of socio-technical aspects of the Web as a standalone artifact. The conference will be held at the Theatron, at the Hellenic Cosmos of the Foundation of the Hellenic World, in Athens, Greece, March 18th – 20th, 2009.

Web Science focuses on understanding, designing and developing the technologies and applications that make up the World Wide Web. However, the WWW does not exist without the participation of people and organizations. Now that a significant proportion of everyday life is spent on-line in many countries, it makes sense for the first Web Science conference organized by the Web Science Research Initiative (WSRI) and the Foundation of the Hellenic World (FHW) to be dedicated to the presentation of research into society on the Web.
