Abstract

Over the last ten years, members of the WEBIST community have dedicated their time and efforts to face a number of research challenges, making significant advances in Information Systems and pointing to new directions for innovation and learning. After ten successful WEBIST conferences and several scientific publications, an extensive analysis of the WEBIST conferences has been carried out (involving authors, publications, conference impact, topics coverage, community analysis and other aspects) to possibly assist us to further advance Information Systems. Thus, in this paper, we present an in-depth analysis of the last ten WEBIST conferences based on social network analysis, bibliometrics and statistical measures and describe a Web-based application built on top of triplified datasets to interactively explore the findings and possibly assist the Information Systems community to reveal new directions.
