2nd Swiss Text Analytics Conference
Text Analytics is used in many companies and industrial sectors, for instance for process optimization, for decision support, or to develop new products and services. On the other hand, there are many research groups at Swiss universities who
do excellent and successful research in this field. Our goal is to bring together practitioners and researchers, to give an overview of existing solutions and technologies, and to come up with ideas for new and innovative projects using automatic
In order to achieve this goal, we invite practitioners, analysts, end users, software vendors, researchers and data scientists to join SwissText 2017, the second edition of the national conference for text analytics.
SwissText 2017 is a one-day conference on automatic text analytics. The conference will see keynotes and presentations by distinguished international experts from research and industry, and an poster exhibition of recent research results. Last
year, we had speakers from international IT giants such as Google and IBM, Swiss companies (e.g. SwissCom), startups, and several universities, and there were more than 30 posters in the exhibition.
We invite experts from research and industry to present their insights and results in text analytics at the SwissText conference.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Presentations types can be: Surveys; Technical Papers; Showcases; or Product/Tool Demonstrations.
The PDF of the printed program can be downloaded here.
Please see the Call for Presentations/Posters (closed) for more details.
SwissText will be held on the 9th of June 2017 in the ZHAW Eulachpassage in Winterthur (same location as last year, but more space!).
