Abstract / Description of output

Social media streams are flooded with posts related to topics that are broad (i.e., cover several sub-topics) and dynamic (i.e., develop over time) which attract long-standing user interests. Posts about topics like “Brexit” or “UK elections” are hard to miss any day while these topics are “hot”, yet research on identifying and analyzing posts on such type of topics is still in its infancy. The BroDyn workshop aims at building a community interested in developing and exchanging ideas and methods for analyzing social media for broad dynamic topics. It also aims at understanding the limitations of existing techniques in answering emerging information needs for such topics, and proposing new techniques, evaluation methods, and test collections to address these limitations. The workshop is designed to bring together audience at all levels, including researchers from academia and industry as well as potential users, to create a forum for discussing recent advances in this area. The workshop, in its first version, featured three papers that span different aspects of the target research area.
