As in previous year, the workshop is specifically focussed on the temporal dimension and the challenge to leverage time signals and expressions to capture dynamics and trends and understand time contextualization. The maturity of the Web, the emergence of large scale repositories of Web material, makes this very timely and a growing set of research and services are emerging that have this focus in common. Having a dedicated workshop has proven relevant and fruitful to take a rich and cross-domain approach to this new research challenge with a strong focus on the temporal dimension.
