It's a bit off the radar of most political scientists, but this is fascinating, combining the rapid advances of AI research (now focused more on Englebart's than Minsky's vision) with the equally impressive innovations in network theory.
The result, and the target audience for this workshop, is improved research on web-based social networks and communities. Since internet mobilization is already a major political tool, this means polital scientists, too.
The workshop will be heald at the International Semantic Web Conference, November 6-10th, in Galway, Ireland.
Papers (6-14 pages) should be submitted by July 5th. Notification of acceptance is on August 26th.
