The Web Science Trust (WST) has launched the Web Science Trust Network of Laboratories (WSTNet Labs), an international network to support Web science research and education. WSTNet Labs will host and organize summer schools, workshops, and meetings, including the WebSci conference series, and focus on new events and fundraising.

"We are linking together a group of highly respected research laboratories, which are all already making internationally leading contributions through their research," says WST's John Taylor.

ACM President and University of Southampton Professor Dame Wendy Hall, who is WST's managing director, adds that "WSTNet will extend our global research capabilities in Web science as well as ensure that the subject is built into university syllabuses."
