Title: Characterizing User Engagement in Major OSNs
Biography of Speaker:
On-line Social Networks have irrupted in the society becoming an
essential service in our daily lives in only a few years. Currently
hundred of millions of people are subscribed to OSNs like Facebook,
Twitter or Google+ and use them daily to interact with their
surrounding social environment. Under this environment the research
community is deeply studying these networks to being able to
understand them and exploit their possibilities in different areas
such as communication, marketing, media, etc. In this talk, we first
describe the evolution of Google+, the youngest OSN among the most
popular ones, in its first year. Later, we present a comparative
analysis of the three major OSN, i.e. Facebook, Twitter and Google+,
in terms of: activity, users reactions to this activity, connectivity
and volume of public information.
Dr. Ángel Cuevas received his MSc in Telecommunication Engineering, MSc in Telematics Engineering, and Ph.D. in Telematics Engineering from the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid in 2006, 2007, and 2011 respectively. He is currently a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the Department of Telematics Engineering at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. Prior to that he was Postdoc researcher at Institut Mines-Telecom, Telecom SudParis from March 2011 until Jan 2013. His research interests focus on On-line Social Networks, P2P Networks, Wireless Sensor Networks and Internet measurements. He is co-author of more than 30 papers in prestigious international journals and conferences such as IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking, ACM Transactions on Sensor Networks, Elsevier Computer Networks, IEEE Network, IEEE Communications Magazine, WWW, ACM CONEXT, ACM MSWiM, IEEE P2P. He is co-recipient of the Best Paper Award in ACM MSWiM 2010.

Rule Based Systems
Title: Reaction RuleML - Standardize Semantic Reaction Rules
Biography of Speaker:
RuleML is a family of XML languages whose modular system of schemas permits
high-precision (Web) rule interchange. The family's top-level distinction is
deliberation rules vs. reaction rules. In this talk I will address the Reaction
RuleML subfamily of RuleML. Reaction RuleML is a standardized rule
markup/serialization language and semantic interchange format for reaction rules and
rule-based event processing. Reaction rules include distributed Complex Event
Processing (CEP), Knowledge Representation (KR) calculi, as well as
Event-Condition-Action (ECA) rules, Production (CA) rules, and Trigger (EA) rules.
Reaction RuleML 1.0 incorporates this reactive spectrum of rules into RuleML
employing a system of step-wise extensions of the Deliberation RuleML 1.0
Professor Dr. Adrian Paschke is head of the Corporate Semantic Web chair (AG-CSW) at the institute of computer science at the Freie Universitaet Berlin (FUB) in Germany. He is director of RuleML Inc., vice director of the Semantics Technologies Institute Berlin (STI Berlin) and the Berlin Semantic Web Meetup Group. He is active in standardization as steering-committee chair of the RuleML Web Rule Standardization Initiative, co-chair of the Reaction RuleML technical group, founding member of the
Event Processing Technology Society (EPTS) and chair of the EPTS Reference
Architecture working group, secretary of the OASIS LegalRuleML TC, voting member of OMG and active in the OMG API4KB standardization, member of several W3C groups such as the W3C Rule Interchange Format working group, where he is editor of several W3C Semantic Web standards, and member of OASIS, where he is a contributor to the new LegalRuleML TC.
He currently coordinates and leads several nationally and internationally funded research projects such as the BMBF InnoProfile project Corporate Semantic Web (CSW), the Transatlantic BPM Education Network (BPM EduNet), and the BMBF Unternehmen Region project Corporate Smart Content (CSC). He also is project leader of several successful open-source projects such as the Prova, Rule Responder, RBSLA, Reaction RuleML. Adrian was involved in multiple industrial and open-source software development and business engineering projects and has helped to spin-off two successful, awarded companies at Freie Universität Berlin, namely Chariteam UG and Klickfilm UG.
He recently was general chair of the 6th ACM International Conference on
Distributed Event-Based Systems (DEBS 2012) and the 7th International Web Rule Symposium (RuleML 2013).
