The LAWA project organizes an one-day workshop with researchers using (or planning to use) the Web as a corpus for their studies. The focus is on methods, tools, and platforms for big-data analytics, including requirements on and experiences with such technologies. Topics of interest include but are not limited to: Web dynamics, history, and archives; text mining and contents classification, temporal/longitudinal studies, scalable methods (e.g., cloud-based map-reduce), large scale data storage, community detection and evolution.
The workshop will have presentations by participating researchers and big-data users, including the LAWA project team. Emphasis will be on experience-sharing and discussing mutual interests in big-data analytics for the temporal Web. The workshop is free of charge and open to public, but registration is compulsory by sending an email to:
