We are pleased to announce the 6th edition of the Summer School on Social Media Modeling and Search
Based on the great success and experience of five previous SSMS editions, the 2012 Summer School on Social Media Modeling and Search will be offering top level education for participants from all over the world. The summer school is aimed at PhD students, young researchers and practitioners interested in social media modeling and analysis, online social interaction analysis and relevant approaches and applications in prediction, search and visualization. Lectures include introductory and advanced courses by leading researchers from academia and industry, and will cover both theoretical and practical aspects of state-of-the-art research in these multi-disciplinary topics.
This year the summer school also offers the Urban Sensoria Lab workshop, where participants will use novel ubiquitous computing technologies to explore Santorini, collect information, and work on a creative project. In addition, a day will be dedicated to issues relevant to the Media Industry, focusing on Social Media and how it affects the News industry. Also, the poster sessions will give participants the opportunity to present their work, get comments and feedback from senior researchers, and interact with their scientific peers, in a friendly and constructive environment.
