International Workshop on Social Media Mining, Retrieval and Recommendation Technologies (SMR 2012)

15 December, 2012, Nanjing, China. In conjuction with ADMA 2012.

With the emergence of Web2.0, the Web is ever increasing in size, variety, and complexity. It involves different types of digital social media such as text, music, pictures, and video. Managing such contents also involves a board range of technologies such as data / Web mining, Web services, semantic Web, ontology, databases, information retrieval, and many others. Such complexities lead to many opportunities and novel applications together with many challenges.
SMR 2012 will be held in conjunction with ADMA 2012 conference and invites original research contribution on Web-based contents management technologies. SMR 2012 aims at bringing together researchers in different fields related to social media information processing who have a common interest in interdisciplinary research. The workshop provides a forum where researchers and practitioners can share and exchange their knowledge and experience.
The SMR 2012 topics include but are certainly not limited to the following areas:
- Contents modeling and organization of social media
- Requirements elicitation, design, and implementation of social media content management systems
- Contents-based social media management
- Social media information retrieval on the Web
- Social media contents mining
- Influence propagation in social networks
- Anomaly detection in social networks
