Call for Participation: Knowledge Extraction and Consolidation from Social Media (KECSM2012) @ ISWC2012

[Apologies for cross-posting]


1st International Workshop on Knowledge Extraction and Consolidation 
from Social Media (KECSM2012)
- -

In conjunction with the 11th International Semantic Web Conference 
(ISWC2012), Boston, 12 November 2012

The main focus of KECSM is on innovative approaches to knowledge 
extraction and consolidation from unstructured social media, in 
particular from degraded user-generated content (text, images, video) 
such as tweets, blog posts, forums and user-generated visual media. 
KECSM will provide an interactive forum to present novel works from the 
fields of (a) data analysis and knowledge extraction, and (b) data 
enrichment, interlinking and consolidation. It will equally consider the 
application perspective, such as the innovative use of extracted 
knowledge to navigate, explore or visualise previously unstructured and 
disparate Web content.
