2nd Temporal Web Analytics Workshop (TempWeb 2012)
in conjunction with WWW 2012
April 17, 2012, Lyon, France

The objective of this workshop is to provide a venue for researchers of 
all domains (IE/IR, Web mining etc.) where the temporal dimension opens 
up an entirely new range of challenges and possibilities. The workshop’s 
ambition is to help shaping a community of interest on the research 
challenges and possibilities resulting from the introduction of the time 
dimension in Web analysis.

TempWeb focuses on temporal data analysis along the time dimension for 
Web data that has been collected over extended time periods. A major 
challenge in this regard is the sheer size of the data it exposes and 
the ability to make sense of it in a useful and meaningful manner for 
its users. Web scale data analytics therefore needs to develop 
infrastructures and extended analytical tools to make sense of these. 
TempWeb will take place April 17, 2012 in conjunction with the 
International World Wide Web Conference in Lyon, France.

"Recorded Future - Unlocking the Predictive Power of the Web"

Recorded Future aims to unlock the predictive power of the Web by 
continuously harvesting large parts of the web, and by using linguistic 
analysis to derive structured information that can be aggregated and 
further analyzed. This talk will present the underlying ideas, the 
techniques being used, and some important challenges going forward.
