The emergence of community-based Web sites and the visible shift from  
the concept of ìa Web of documentsî towards "a Web of peopleî creates  
a strong need for inter-disciplinary empirical and theoretical  
research focused on Web-based communities.  On one hand, this  
requires expertise in the IT domain, including some knowledge of  
systems architectures and information extraction technologies.  On  
the other hand, a multi-aspect analysis of human behaviour on the Web  
is possible thanks to existing frameworks within social sciences.
The goal of this workshop is to bring researchers and practitioners  
together to explore the issues and challenges related to social  
aspects of the Web.  We want to facilitate discussion on the topics  
of development and detection of Web-based communities, social  
interactions within and between them as well as technology for mining  
of social Web sources.
