Mining Unstructured Big Data Using Natural Language Processing

The "Mining unstructured big data using Natural Language Processing" 2013 Workshop will be held at ACM International Conference on Information and Knowledge Management, CIKM 2013.

In this workshop, we will aggregate different but highly related research communities, i.e., “NLP”, “Text Mining” and “IR” researchers, to investigate the possible opportunities and challenges in semantic mining problem.

Keynote Speaker

Professor Beth A. Plale, Data to Insight Center (D2I),School of Informatics and Computing, Indiana University Bloomington

Talk: Big-data and NLP opportunities and challenges @ HathiTrust

Professor Beth A. Plale has broad research and governance interest in long term preservation and access to scientific data, and enabling computational access to large-scale data for broader groups of researchers. Her specific research interests are in tools for metadata and provenance capture, data repositories, cyberinfrastructure for large-scale data analysis, and workflow systems. Plale is deeply engaged in interdisciplinary research and education and has substantive experience in developing stable and useable scientific cyberinfrastructure.
