*Messaging and Web of Data: Private meets Public (and vice-versa)*

*Workshop objective and goals*

The growing amount of public available data on the WWW is a new 
opportunity to improve Messaging systems (e.g. Email, Social Media, 
Instant Messaging) in multiple forms, such as messages content, 
processing (classification, etc.) and presentation. This workshop is 
dedicated to explore how public web data, such as identities, agendas, 
LinkedData, social networks or various information published on the web 
can meet private messaging data (semi-structured headers, information 
extracted from emails, footers such as signatures, etc.) to bring new 
insight for users, and prevent error or abuse. Reciprocally, messages 
can become public (think about public email archives, leaked email 
datasets, Twitter timelines, etc.), but sometimes to implement web 
standards to be efficiently identified, distributed and linked. This 
private/public duality and versality, applied to messages in general 
(and especially to email), is the basis of this workshop, which goes 
beyond technical aspects and aims at exploring impacts on users' 
practices, interfaces and trust.
In this workshop edition, we want to particularly explore 1) how to 
preserve privacy in the context strictly private messages (Email, Direct 
Messages) and public data (such as open linked data) by minimizing 
information disclosure, and 2) the integration of social media (Twitter, 
Facebook) with conventional messaging systems (Email, forums) in an 
everyday use, and its impact on data acquisation and organisation.


Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Archives exploration and analysis: Email mailing lists, web archives, 
structured datasets, email archives as knowledge base or business 
intelligence data source.
- Usage studies: usage patterns, behaviors, information overload.
- Technical impact: infrastructures, protocols stacks.
- Web standards: embedding web standards in messages, semantics, 
microformats, LinkedData and its integration and use in messages.
- Conversations: quotes, threads, sentiment/discourse/opinion analysis, 
dialog analysis, conversation graph.
- Social: identities, institution and individual reputation, 
folksonomies, collaboration and social media integration.
- HCI and visualization: interfaces, novel interactions, visual 
- Natural Language Processing: applications of NLP technologies, message 
understanding, topic modeling, message summarization.
- Information Extraction: methods and techniques to extract 
sensitive/personal information from email, entities disambiguation and 
- Interactions on the Web: instant messaging, RSS feeds, blogging, 
social network, tweets.
- Security and privacy issues: usable privacy, trust, phishing, abuse.
