Call for Special Issue on Trust and Veracity of Information in Social Media

ATC participates with a guest editor in the forthcoming special issue of ACM Transactions on Information Systems (TOIS): "Trust and Veracity of Information in Social Media". This Special Issue focuses on the problem of modelling and assessing the trust and veracity of content and information posted in social media.

Revealing Hidden Concepts in Social Media

ATC participates as the technical and scientific coordinator in the REVEAL project, which is co-funded by the European Commission under the FP7 ICT programme. REVEAL aims to discover ‘higher level’ information hidden within social media multimedia content, such as the reputation, influence or trustworthiness of an information source.
