More than twenty years after the birth of the World Wide Web, Web Science has been becoming a new study field in Computer Science. This course introduces fundamental concepts (web centralities & algorithms, network models and web engineering principles) of Web Science. We then give an overview on regular and random network models. We will learn fundamental algorithms for web page ranking like PageRank as well as advanced community detection algorithms like HITS. The anatomy of recommender systems and dynamic processes on complex networks will finish this part. In the engineering part we dig into emerging cloud computing approaches and Post-HTTP protocols like the XMPP and Web Sockets. We will learn about Web Services and their RESTful implementation. With the knowledge gained in the preceding chapter we can analyze and engineer advanced Web applications like video annotation environments, personal learning environments and storytelling environments.
