Student Poster Session

The Summer School on Social Media Modeling and Search is especially aimed to provide a stimulating space for young researchers and Ph.D. students. All participants are encouraged to bring their poster to the summer school, presenting the results of their research on the various topics of the school.

Each participant should send us an A4 version of the poster no later than 31th August 2012, two weeks before the start of the summer school, so that we can produce a booklet for distribution to all participants.
