Announcing the 6th International Workshop on News Recommendation and Analytics (INRA 2018)

Author: Andreas Lommatzsch

The 27th edition of the Conference on Knowledge Management and Machine Learning will take place in Torino (Italy) October 22-26. In 2018, the conference focuses on big data, big information, and big knowledge. Thus, the topics of interest cover a wide range which includes data acquisition, pre-processing, analysis, visualization, evaluation, and innovative applications.

The news domain generates a plethora of data leading to various problems in the realm of "big data". We want to address these issues and more in the sixth edition of the "Workshop on News Recommendation and Analytics (INRA)" in conjunction with CIKM.

Continuously changing streams of unstructured, fragmentary stories necessitate research on how to categorize, verify, and present news. A multitude of challenging research questions emerges as a result. The workshop brings together researchers, media companies, and practitioners to exchange ideas and explore ways to support creating, distributing, and recommending digital news.

The primary topics of interests are:

  • News Recommendation
  • News Analytics
  • Fake News and Disinformation
  • User Experience Issues
  • Evaluation Platforms, Methods and Datasets

We also provide Data Sets and Evaluation Platforms if you would like to test their ideas on real world news settings.

The Keynote Talks will be given by

  • Frank Hopfgartner, Information School of University of Sheffield, UK
  • Anja Benner-Tischler, University of Kassel, Germany
  • Leif Ramming, Plista GmbH, Germany

Use the EasyChair Conference system to submit contributions. Accepted papers will be published in CEUR workshop series by CIKM.

Please do not forget the important dates:
