Two full and two short papers I co-authored have been accepted to Web Science 2017:
‘The Effect of Collective Attention on Controversial Debates on Social Media‘, with K. Garimella, G. De Francisci Morales, A. Gionis.
‘Recommendations for groups in location-based social networks‘, Frederick Ayala, B. Daróczy, A. Benczur, A. Gionis.

‘Factors in Recommending Contrarian Content on Social Media‘, with K. Garimella, G. De Francisci Morales, A. Gionis.
Our system for ‘Exploring Polarized Consumption of News Online’ has been accepted for demonstration at WWW2017, Perth, Australia. The demo is hosted by Kiran.
Check it out here.
We just heard that our paper on “Balancing Opposing Views to Reduce Controversy” (available on the ACM Digital Library) was nominated for best paper at WSDM 2017.
Update: Cornell received the best paper award – and our paper the best student paper award, with Kiran as first author.
Our paper on ‘Reducing controversy by connecting opposing views’ will appear at next year’s WSDM, in Cambridge.
I made a short presentation about the work for our research group meeting – you can find the slides here.
The WWW conference is currently taking place in Montreal; and I’m attending to present our ‘GeoTopics’ demo. The demo is part of a project that I’ve been working on with Emre and Géraud.
You can find the demo on the project’s github page.
Our work on absorbing random-walk centrality (arXiv) with Harry and Aris will be presented at the IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM) next week in Atlantic City. You can find a short summary of the paper on northernbytes.
