Structural Analysis of Online Text Networks

A lot of information in online social media can be modeled as an heterogeneous network where nodes represent users or timestamped text messages and edges represent "send/post" and "receive" actions. Our claim is that data analysis methods able to cope with time, text and network structure (aka topology) should be able to extract more information from these models than what we can get by considering each of these aspects separately. At the seminar we will present some previous work and some recent ideas in this direction, still mainly focusing on the structure of the network more than the exchanged text, and hope to get some good ideas on how to proceed from those of you who know more about text modeling and analysis.
