Challenges and Opportunities of Democracy in the Digital Society (Dagstuhl Seminar 22361)

Authors: Abraham Bernstein, Anita Gohdes, Cristina Sarasua, Steffen Staab, and Beth Simone Noveck

Published in: Dagstuhl Reports, Volume 12, Issue 9 (2023)


Abstract
Digital technologies amplify and change societal processes. So far, society and intellectuals have painted two extremes of viewing the effects of the digital transformation on democratic life. While the early 2000s to mid-2010s declared the "liberating" aspects of digital technology, the post-Brexit events and the 2016 US elections have emphasized the "dark side" of the digital revolution. Now, explicit effort is needed to go beyond tech saviorism or doom scenarios. To this end, we organized the Dagstuhl Seminar 22361 "Challenges and Opportunities of Democracy in the Digital Society" to discuss the future of digital democracy. This report presents a summary of the seminar, which took place in Dagstuhl in September 2022. The seminar attracted scientific scholars from various disciplines, including political science, computer science, jurisprudence, and communication science, as well as civic technology practitioners.

Web Futures: Inclusive, Intelligent, Sustainable The 2020 Manifesto for Web Science (Dagstuhl Perspectives Workshop 18262)

Authors: Bettina Berendt, Fabien Gandon, Susan Halford, Wendy Hall, Jim Hendler, Katharina E. Kinder-Kurlanda, Eirini Ntoutsi, and Steffen Staab

Published in: Dagstuhl Manifestos, Volume 9, Issue 1 (2021)


Abstract
This Manifesto was produced from the Perspectives Workshop 18262 entitled "10 Years of Web Science" that took place at Schloss Dagstuhl from June 24 – 29, 2018. At the Workshop, we revisited the origins of Web Science, explored the challenges and opportunities of the Web, and looked ahead to potential futures for both the Web and Web Science. We explain issues that society faces in the Web by the ambivalences that are inherent in the Web. All the enormous benefits that the Web offers - for information sharing, collective organization and distributed activity, social inclusion and economic growth - will always carry along negative consequences, too, and 30 years after its creation negative consequences of the Web are only too apparent. The Web continues to evolve and its next major step will involve Artificial Intelligence (AI) at large. AI has the potential to amplify positive and negative outcomes, and we explore these possibilities, situating them within the wider debate about the future of regulation and governance for the Web. Finally, we outline the need to extend Web Science as the science that is devoted to the analysis and engineering of the Web, to strengthen our role in shaping the future of the Web and present five key directions for capacity building that are necessary to achieve this: (i), supporting interdisciplinarity, (ii), supporting collaboration, (iii), supporting the sustainable Web, (iv), supporting the Intelligent Web, and (v), supporting the Inclusive Web. Our writing reflects our background in several disciplines of the social and technical sciences and that these disciplines emphasize topics to various extents. We are acutely aware that our observations occupy a particular point in time and are skewed towards our experience as Western scholars - a limitation that Web Science will need to overcome.

10 Years of Web Science: Closing The Loop (Dagstuhl Perspectives Workshop 18262)

Authors: Susan Halford, James A. Hendler, Eirini Ntoutsi, and Steffen Staab

Published in: Dagstuhl Reports, Volume 8, Issue 6 (2019)


Abstract
This report documents the program and the outcomes of Dagstuhl Seminar 18262 "10 years Web Science: Closing the Loop" that took place in Schloss Dagstuhl from 25-29 June 2018. In total, an interdisciplinary team of 22 researchers from computer science, sociology, philosophy and law gathered and discussed on the past, present and future of Web Science and what sort of actions the community should take to stay faithful to its initial mission for societal good. The role of Web Science is more critical than ever given the ever growing impact of the Web in our society.

08391 Executive Summary – Social Web Communities

Authors: Harith Alani, Steffen Staab, and Gerd Stumme

Published in: Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 8391, Social Web Communities (2008)


Abstract
Blogs, Wikis, and Social Bookmark Tools have rapidly emerged on the Web. The reasons for their immediate success are that people are happy to share information, and that these tools provide an infrastructure for doing so without requiring any specific skills. At the moment, there exists no foundational research for these systems, and they provide only very simple structures for organising knowledge. Individual users create their own structures, but these can currently not be exploited for knowledge sharing. The objective of the seminar was to provide theoretical foundations for upcoming Web 2.0 applications and to investigate further applications that go beyond bookmark- and file-sharing. The main research question can be summarized as follows: How will current and emerging resource sharing systems support users to leverage more knowledge and power from the information they share on Web 2.0 applications? Research areas like Semantic Web, Machine Learning, Information Retrieval, Information Extraction, Social Network Analysis, Natural Language Processing, Library and Information Sciences, and Hypermedia Systems have been working for a while on these questions. In the workshop, researchers from these areas came together to assess the state of the art and to set up a road map describing the next steps towards the next generation of social software.

08391 Group Summary – The Evolution and Dynamics of Research Networks

Authors: Vladimir Batagelj, Bettina Hoser, Claudia Müller, Steffen Staab, and Gerd Stumme

Published in: Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 8391, Social Web Communities (2008)


Abstract
Existing collaboration and innovation in scientific communities can be enhanced by understanding the underlying patterns und hidden relations. Social network analysis is an appropriate method to reveal such patterns. Nevertheless, research in this area is mainly focused on social networks. One promising approach is to use homophily networks as well. Furthermore, extending the static to a dynamic network model enables to understand existing interdependencies in these networks. A mathematical description of possible analyses is given. Finally, resulting research questions are illustrated and the necessity of an interdisciplinary research approach is pointed out.
