The workshop program of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence's International Conference on Web and Social Media (AAAI-16) was held in Cologne, Germany. There were eight workshops in the program: CityLab, Challenges and Futures for Ethical Social Media Research, Social Media and Demographic Research, Wiki, #Fail: Things That Didn't Work Out in Social Media Research - And What We Can Learn from Them, News and Public Opinion, Social Media in the Newsroom, and Social Web for Environmental and Ecological Monitoring. Workshops were held on the first day of the conference, Tuesday, May 17, 2016. Workshop participants met and discussed issues with a selected focus - providing an informal setting for active exchange among researchers, developers, and users on topics of current interest. Of the eight workshops held at the conference; organizers from only five included papers in the AAAI Technical Reports series, and organizers from six workshops submitted reports.
