SMUC2010: 2nd International Workshop on Search and Mining User-generated Contents http://labs.brainsins.com/events/smuc2010 Workshop at CIKM 2010 (http://www.yorku.ca/cikm10/) October 30, 2010, Toronto, Canada Submission deadline: 30 June, 2010 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SMUC10 aims to become a forum for researchers from several Information and Knowledge Management areas like data/text mining, information retrieval, semantics, etc. that apply their work into the fields of Social Media and Opinion/Sentiment Analysis where the main goal is to process user generated contents.

User generated content provides an excellent scenario to apply the metaphor of mining any kind of information. In a social media context, users create a huge amount of data where we can look for valuable nuggets of knowledge by applying several search techniques (information retrieval) or mining techniques (data mining, text mining, web mining, opinion mining, etc.). In this kind of data we can find both structured information (ratings, tags, links, etc.) and unstructured information (text, audio, video, etc.), and we must learn to combine existing techniques in order to take advantage of this heterogeneity while extracting useful knowledge.
