About TWAW

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 May 13, 2013 in conjunction with the International World Wide Web Conference in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Workshop topics of TempWeb therefore include, but are not limited to following:

- Web scale data analytics
- Temporal Web analytics
- Distributed data analytics
- Web science
- Web dynamics
- Data quality metrics
- Web spam evolution
- Content evolution on the Web
- Systematic exploitation of Web archives
- Large scale data storage
- Large scale data processing
- Time aware Web archiving
- Data aggregation
- Web trends
- Topic mining
- Terminology evolution
- Community detection and evolution
