Social Media and Web Content Processing Services and Applications

Centre for Research and Technolgy Hellas, 6 July 2012, Thessaloniki

The objective of the workshop on Social Media and Web Content Processing Services and Applications is to gather industrial and academic stakeholders along with venture capitalists and encourage discussion and sharing of ideas in the areas of social media analysis and web content processing. We intend to discuss recent research results and commercial products in the general area of mining social and web content and to promote cross-fertilization of industry and academia. A second aim of the workshop is to bring together venture capitalists, start-up companies and researchers to discuss emerging opportunities, obstacles and risks arising in entrepreneurship in these areas both at local and international level.
