Call for papers


Social media is a constant in our life, influencing the way we think, interact, learn, consolidate relationships and understand society. As a result of the rapid worldwide acceptance and usage of social media, more and more content is becoming available as each day passes. Both because of its importance and its increasing volume, it is not surprising that information from Social Media is rapidly becoming an essential source for natural language processing (NLP) research.
At the same time, Linked Data is emerging as an increasingly important topic for NLP. Work in the field has produced massive amounts of linguistic data, including annotated corpora, lexicons, databases, and ontologies, in formats that enable their exploitation in the Semantic Web. Linking the contents of these resources to each other as well as to common ontologies can enable access to and discovery of detailed linguistic information and could foster a major leap forward in NLP research and development.
RUMOUR-2017 aims to gather innovative approaches for exploitation of social media using semantic web technologies and linked data by bringing together research on the Semantic Web, Linked Data, and the Social Sciences. The main objective of this workshop is to consolidate an internationally appreciated forum for scientific research in ICT, with emphasis on crowdsourcing, semantic web, knowledge integration and data linking.
The workshop will bring together practitioners, researchers, and scholars to share examples, use cases, theories, and analysis of social media and linked data in order to address the intersection among these areas. This intersection includes not only the challenges of problems such as the understanding and acting upon large-scale data of different kinds, provenance, and reliability, but also the use of these media for data management, which involves issues of credibility, accountability, trustworthiness, privacy, authenticity, and provision of provenance information.

Topics

The scientific program of RUMOUR-2017 will focus around the following topics:



  • Social media and linked data methodologies in real-life scenarios;
  • Creating and using structured social media-based resources through social web mining;
  • Novel analytical tools and methodologies for knowledge discovery;
  • Semantic annotation;
  • Ontological modeling of social media data;
  • Integration of social media with linked data;
  • Web of data applications for the society;
  • Extracting, understanding and predicting user and group behavior;
  • Exploring crowdsourcing and user communities;
  • Interactive interfaces and visual analytics methods;
  • Collaborative tools and services for citizens, organizations, communities;
  • Computational social science for the semantic web;
  • Strategic early warning systems and detection of week signals;
  • User profiling, trustworthiness and assessing the suitability of social media content;
  • Sentiment analysis in social media and linked data;
  • Using the social web to foster innovation.

Submission


We invite submissions of both long (up to 8 pages) and short (up to 4 pages) papers, representing original, previously unpublished research, innovative approaches and resource types, use cases or in-depth discussions. Short papers may also represent project proposals or work in progress. Authors must strictly follow ACM Proceedings template guidelines. Submissions not following the format guidelines will be rejected without review.
Abstracts and papers must be submitted online through the RUMOUR2017 page on EasyChair.
To ensure high quality, all papers will be thoroughly reviewed by the RUMOUR 2017 Program Committee. All reviews will be double blind, and hence authors are instructed not to include their identity, affiliation(s) or contact details, and to anonymize any references that would reveal the authorship of the paper. Papers submitted to other conferences or journals must state this fact. If a paper will appear in another conference or journal, it must be withdrawn from RUMOUR.
At least one author of each paper must register using the JCDL registration page to have the paper published in the RUMOUR-2017 Proceedings. All accepted papers must be presented at the workshop by one of the authors.
