The aggregate analysis of emoticon use in newsgroups for science and politics tend on the whole to be consistent over the entire time period. Where possible, events that coincide with divergences from trends in language-subject pairs are noted. Political discourse in Italian over the period shows marked use of negative emoticons, and in Swedish, positive emoticons. → Read More: Emoticonsciousness

Preliminary Call – MASoc 2011

This workshop focuses on Information Retrieval (IR) challenges for dynamic, mobile adhoc societies (MASocs). Current social networks are based on the typical web paradigm where support from fixed infrastructures is required, and therefore interactions are largely based on users’ permanent information needs and characteristics. On the other hand, due to the increasing popularity and technological advances in mobile devices (increased dependability, connectivity, user-friendliness, battery life) we can envision a new type of decentralised social network able to directly address ephemeral information needs and interactions. IR and related technologies will be at the core of this new paradigm due to its inherent lack of fixed points of reference. → Read More: Preliminary Call – MASoc 2011

DIR 2011 – Call for Papers

place where researchers from the domain of information retrieval and related disciplines can exchange information and present innovative research developments. DIR 2011 will put special emphasis on interaction – by focusing on poster presentations and creating space and time to meet and discuss new ideas. → Read More: DIR 2011 – Call for Papers
