Meeting Description:

RUMOUR-2016 aims to gather innovative approaches to exploitation of social media using semantic web technologies and linked data. The workshop will bring together practitioners, researchers, and scholars from Semantic Web, Linked Data, and Social Sciences, to share examples, cases, theories, and analysis of social media and linked data in order to address the intersection among these areas. This intersection includes not only high challenge problems such as the understanding and acting upon large-scale data of different kinds, provenance, and reliability, but also the use of these media for various applications.
