ECML PKDD 2017
Description:

Retail data are one of the most requested commodities by commercial companies. Unfortunately, from this data, it is possible to retrieve highly sensitive information about individuals. Thus, there exists the need for accurate individual privacy risk evaluation. In this paper, we propose a methodology for assessing privacy risk in retail data. We define the data formats for representing retail data, the privacy framework for calculating privacy risk and some possible privacy attacks for this kind of data.

TELERISE @SAFECOMP 2017 3rd International Workshop on TEchnical and LEgal aspects of data pRIvacy and SEcurity

TELERISE @SAFECOMP 2017
Description:

A growing number of actors perpetrate cyber attacks to various targets, be them public entities, ISPs, enterprises or citizens. Supported by governments or aiming at criminal activities, attackers dispose of channels for sharing and obtaining undisclosed vulnerabilities, attack toolkits and information. On the other hand, attack targets need to react quickly and effectively but they risk to be alone if they do not join forces with others. However timely reactions depend on the quality and timeliness of interactions among peers (e.g., CERTs, public security bodies, ISPs, service providers).

Essex University Summer School on Big Data and Analytics
Description:

This tutorial will introduce the concepts of social media and sentiment analysis from unstructured text. It will first introduce the concept of social media analysis, showing how this form of noisy text requires different solutions from traditional text analysis, with practical examples and exercises showing how this can be achieved. This leads into the more specialised task of sentiment analysis: the problem of extracting opinions automatically from text.

Description:

There is an increasing interest among different research communities (ranging from civil engineering to computer science) and industrial stakeholders on build knowledge discovery pipelines over large-scale mobility data sources. However, such availability also raise privacy issues that must be considered by both industrial and academic stakeholders on using these resources. The Workshop has the aim in presenting some emergent studies in mobility data analysis and complex systems in order to raise the interests in the field.

Headstart Summer School 2017
Description:

At the university's Headstart Summer School in July 2017, 42 students (age 16 and 17) from all over the UK were taught to write Java programs to control Lego robots, using input from the robots (such as the sensor for detecting coloured marks on the floor) as well as operating the motors to move and turn.  (The university provided a custom Java library for this.) Secondary school students have been taught to program Lego robots and tweet commands to them with the GATE Cloud Twitter Collector.

Social media is being adopted and applied in almost every area of human activity, be it for personal applications, in education, for commercial applications or in the public sector. The rapid uptake of social media is related to many factors including its ease of use and adaptability to different devices. However, it also poses some challenges and problems that need to be addressed and discussed.

Computational Fake News Analysis: A Practical Workshop
Description:

The recent past has highlighted the influential role of social networks and other digital media in shaping public debate on current affairs and political issues. Disinformation and the alternative media ecosystem distort societal debates, increase polarisation, and threaten participatory democracy. For instance, the surprising success of Brexit and Trump’s election has been, at least partially, attributed to the unprecedented weave of false information that in both cases have polluted online debate before the vote.
