The Third Data Literacy Workshop will take place within ACM´s The Web Conference 2022 
Data is one of the most valuable resources in our digital economy. However, it is still not clear that we, as citizens, workers and learners, are equipped with the necessary competences to handle such a valuable asset. Data Literacy has become a critical aspect of the transformation of our society, our economy, and the web. In this workshop, we will address this topic with invited speakers and presentations from the selected papers’ authors.

Submission Guidelines

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. The following paper categories are welcome:

  • We are inviting submissions of original, unpublished articles. Potential topics include (but are not limited to):
    What do we mean by data literacy?
    Why do we need data literacy?
    How should data literacy be achieved?
    How is data literacy addressed in educational settings?
    What are the broader political, social and philosophical implications of data literacy?
    What are the practical implications of data literacy?
    What is the role of data intermediaries or facilitators? Is Data literacy for everybody, or will we always have the need for intermediaries between the creators/providers of the data and the consumers in order to provide insight on the context and meaning of the data?

  • Enabling data journalism
