Getting to know Social Network analysis tools


Abstract

Nowadays, many people use social network capabilities to connect with others or share news or their favorite topic. Big volume of data consists of user interactions with each other which have encouraged researchers to discover knowledge from them. This information can be divided into three categories: Textual information, Linked Information and Time Information. Since users generate Textual content more, textual data plays a more important role in knowledge discovery from social networks. The purpose of this workshop is to introduce social networks and how to use different kinds of information in them to solve real-life problems.

introducing text mining methods and its programming tools in python


Abstract

The volume of textual data is growing dramatically. This big volume of text is usually unstructured and therefore, can’t be easily processed with a computer. Thus, practical techniques and algorithms are needed to detect structure, information and useful patterns inside the text. Text mining is a set of methods which extract meaningful information from a text. In this workshop, we will introduce some of the basic techniques for text mining such as textual preprocessing, classification and clustering, and then, we will give a general review of python’s different libraries for text mining and study some source codes as examples for each of these tools.
