	abstract     = {With advancements in technology and culture, our language
changes. We invent new words, add or change meanings of existing words and change names of existing things. Left untackled, these changes in language create a gap between the language known by users and the language stored in our digital archives. In particular, they affect our possibility to firstly find and content and secondly interpret that content. In this paper we discuss the limitations brought on by language evolution and existing methodology for automatically finding evolution. We discuss measured needed in the near future to ensure semantically accessible digital archives for long-term preservation.},

	title        = {BlogNEER: Applying Named Entity Evolution Recognition on the Blogosphere},
	abstract     = {The introduction of Social Media allowed more people to publish texts by removing barriers that are technical but also social such as the editorial controls that exist in traditional media. The resulting language tends to be more like spoken language because people adapt their use to the medium. Since spoken language is more dynamic, more new and short lived terms are introduced also in written format on the Web. In teTahmasebi2012 we presented an unsupervised method for Named Entity Evolution Recognition (NEER) to find name changes in newspaper collections. In this paper we present BlogNEER, an extension to apply NEER on blog data. The language used in blogs is often closer to spoken language than to language used in traditional media. BlogNEER introduces a novel semantic filtering method that makes use of Semantic Web resources (i.e., DBpedia) to gain more information about terms. We present the approach of BlogNEER and initial results that show the potentials of the approach. },

In particular, we focus on four main areas relevant to support the ARCOMEM requirements and use cases: (a) entity and event extraction from text; (b) entity and event enrichment and consolidation; (c) topic
detection and dynamics; and (d) temporal aspects and dynamics detection in Web language and online social networks.},

	abstract     = {The SMS workshop 2013 on Social Media Semantics was held this year in the context of the OTM ("OnTheMove") federated conferences, covering different aspects of distributed information systems in September 2013 in Graz. The topic of the workshop is about semantics in Social Media. The SocialWeb has become the first and main medium to get and spread information. Everyday news is reported instantly, and social media has become a major source for broadcasters, news reporters and political analysts as well as a place of interaction for everyday people. For a full utilization of this medium, information must be gathered, analyzed and semantically understood. In this workshop we ask the question: how can Semantic Web technologies be used to provide the means for interested people to draw conclusions, assess situations and to preserve their findings for future use? © 2013 Springer-Verlag.},
