Research Talk Schedule

Primary tabs

The CWDS seminar series is centered around intellectual exchange and interaction, and the audience is encouraged to ask questions during presentations. The goal is a seminar that looks less like a lecture and more like a spirited discussion of issues raised in a relatively brief presentation of a paper or a research project.

All seminars will be held at 12:30 on Wednesdays in the atrium on the third floor of the Tioga Library Building. We will aim to conclude by 1:30. Coffee and treats will be provided during the seminar; attendees are also welcome to bring their lunch.

If you are interested in learning more about our seminar series, or would like to present please contact Joel Larson

The CWDS has moved into the UWT Research Commons in the Tioga Library Building. Along with our collaborative space shared with other Centers of UWT, we also have a new seminar presentation space that provides us with a state-of-the-art Video Wall, lots of natural light, and a configurable space for presentations, small group meetings or poster presentations. Please come and see the new space and learn how you may better interact with the Center in our new location.

Abstract
Social networking sites are becoming an important source of users' interaction.
Their users generate lots of information about themselves and post it on these
sites, however similar to any real world data set, data are mostly incomplete,
vague, and uncertain. Understanding and modeling of social network sites (e.g.,
Facebook) in order to predict missing attribute values in proles of users would
help improving user modeling, recommendations, and personalization, among
others.
