History

Origins

Over the years, a number of Web Science related, successful Summer Schools were held at different places. In late 2015, WSTNet set forward the mission to provide coordination and continuity between these different instances. From then on, they have been joint under the label WSTNet Web Science Summer School (WWSSS) to support students to plan attendance, help graduate programmes to understand the purpose of the Web Science summer schools and for industries to retain the link between them.
