9th International Workshop on Modeling Social Media (MSM'2018) Applying Machine Learning and AI for Modeling Social Media

9th International Workshop on Modeling Social Media (MSM'2018) Applying Machine Learning and AI for Modeling Social Media

We are pleased to announce the International Workshop on Modeling Social Media: Applying Machine Learning and AI for Modeling Social Media co-located with the TheWebConf 2018, 24 April 2018, Lyon, France.

Workshop Program!


We aim to attract researchers from all over the world working on applying Machine Learning and AI models for social media data analytics and predictive insights. Social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn have paved the way for generating huge amount of diverse, streaming bit data in a short period of time. Such social media data require the application of big data analytics to produce meaningful information to both information consumers and data generators. Machine learning and AI techniques are particularly effective in situations where deep and predictive insights need to be uncovered from such social media data sets that are large, diverse and fast changing. Following the discussion at our workshop at WWW2017, we aim to focus on how to apply machine learning and AI models, algorithms and systems for analytics and predictive modeling on social media and the web. Contrary to last year’s workshop, we would like to particularly invite researchers that are interested in going beyond standard analytics approaches and try to discover the intelligent information hidden in the large and fast-changing social media data.

In this context, we would also like to invite researchers in the machine learning, AI, natural language processing, data and web mining community to lend their expertise to help to increase our understanding of the web and social media. Overall, we are interested in receiving papers related to the following topics which include but are not limited to:

The goal of this workshop is to apply machine learning and AI approaches and algorithms on social media, big data and the web.

Submissions: We solicit full research papers (4-8 pages), and short papers (1-4 pages) both in the ACM conference paper style. Papers should be submitted in EasyChair to https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=www2018satellites

Program Schedule

The workshop will take place on Tuesday (24 April, 2018) in the afternoon starting at 1:40 (see the detailed program schedule below).

Please note:


All submitted papers must

It is the authors’ responsibility to ensure that their submissions adhere strictly to the required format. Submissions that do not comply with the above guidelines may be rejected without review.

All submissions must be entered into the reviewing system: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=www2018satellites

Contributions will be included in the Companion volume of TheWebConf 2018 conference, which will be published by ACM and included in the ACM Digital Library. However, to make that happen at least one author of the accepted paper has to register. At the time of submission of the final camera-ready copy, authors will have to indicate the already registered person for that publication.

Any paper published by the ACM, IEEE, etc. which can be properly cited constitutes research which must be considered in judging the novelty of a TheWebConf submission, whether the published paper was in a conference, journal, or workshop. Therefore, any paper previously published as part of a WWW or TheWebConf workshop must be referenced and suitably extended with new content to qualify as a new submission to the Research Track at TheWebConf conference.
