U-M Workshop on Data, Text, Web, and Social Network Mining
Over the last several years, the research community at the University of Michigan focused on mining large amounts of data (whether structured, semi-structured, textual, or multimedia) has grown significantly. Faculty interested in developing new data mining techniques are now hosted in several units, including Computer Science and Engineering, Information, Statistics, Linguistics, and Mathematics, and also several domain units in the natural sciences, medical sciences, social sciences, and humanities, with faculty interested in the use of data mining techniques to advance science in their domain. The goal of this workshop is to bring this group of people together and to set the agenda for research in the next 10 years and beyond.
Keynote Speaker: Raghu Ramakrishnan, Chief Scientist for Audience and Cloud Computing at Yahoo!, and a Yahoo! Fellow, Building and Searching a Web of Concepts.
