Workshop adjourned 5:00pm  
Workshop Description: On Friday, the IIPC will host an all day, hands-on, technical workshop (bring a laptop if you have one!) to explore web data mining and analysis efforts amongst our members in partnership with extended research communities and commercial sectors, globally. The attendees who commit to participate will be directly involved in shaping the agenda and focus for the day. If you register to attend, please plan to be prepared to weigh in with your priorities. The Internet Archive and University of North Texas has volunteered to assemble a "public" data set in a Hadoop cluster housed by IA in northern California that will be used for experimentation and demonstration of infrastructure, tools, scripts and other resources during the workshop. The areas of focus could include the research and operational tasks of text mining, link and web analysis and graphing, automated QA of crawled data sets, proximity analysis, and/or auto- classification of web resources among others to be proposed. Not all of these use cases will be illustrated by IA and UNT. We hope the community in attendance can come together to build a robust program to explore efforts of most significant interest and importance to those in attendance.
