The far-reaching impact of the Web on society is widely recognized. The interdisciplinary study of this impact has crystallized in the field of study known as Web Science. However, defining an agreed, shared understanding of what constitutes web science requires complex negotiation and translations of understandings across component disciplines, national cultures and educational traditions. Some individual institutions have already established particular curricula, and discussions in the Web Science Curriculum Workshop series have marked the territory to some extent. This paper reports on a process being adopted across a consortium of partners to systematically create a shared understanding of what constitutes web science. It records and critiques the processes instantiated to agree a common curriculum, and presents a framework for future discussion and development.
