          3rd Workshop on Social Aspects of the Web  (SAW 2009)
                           in conjunction with

                             Poznan, Poland

               Deadline for submissions: February 1, 2009


In recent years, the Web has moved from a simple one-way communication
channel, extending traditional media, to a complex "peer-to-peer"
communication space with a blurred author/audience distinction and new
ways to create, share, and use knowledge in a social way.

This change of paradigm is currently profoundly transforming most areas
of our life: our interactions with other people, our relationships, ways
of gathering information, ways of developing social norms, opinions,
attitudes and even legal aspects, as well as ways of working and doing

The change also raises a strong need for theoretical, empirical and
applied studies related to how people may interact on the Web, how they
actually do so, and what new possibilities and challenges are emerging
in the social, business and technology dimensions.

Following the two previous events, the goal of the 3rd Workshop is to
bring researchers and practitioners together to explore the issues and
challenges related to social aspects of the Web.
