The Sixteenth International AAAI Conference on Web and Social Media (ICWSM 2022) was held from June 6-9 as a hybrid conference, both in-person in Atlantic Georgia and virtually. The conference general cochairs were Diyi Yang and Yelena Mejova. The conference program cochairs were Jisun An, Luca Maria Aiello, and Tanu Mitra. The virtual conference cochairs were Walid Magdy, Xiaojuan Ma, and Koustuv Saha.
ICWSM, now in its sixteenth year, has become one of the premier venues for computational social science, and previous years of ICWSM have featured papers, posters, and demos that draw upon network science, machine learning, computational linguistics, sociology, communication, and political science. The uniqueness of the venue and the quality of submissions have contributed to a rapidly growing conference, and a competitive acceptance rate of approximately 20% for full-length research papers published in the proceedings by the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI). Submitted papers covered a wide range of topics, including, but not limited to, studies of digital humanities (culture, history, arts) using social media; social innovation and effecting change through social media; and measuring predictability of real-world phenomena based on social media.
