New year 2017: best wishes & perspectives
On behalf of all the IMR team we wish you a happy new year 2017. Over the past few months, we have laid the groundwork for an exciting and promising year to come. We will remain focused on achieving and improving our original activities but also officially launch our new shopping empowerment app Bomerce.
As the new year dawns, it’s also time for us to reflect over the past year and share our perspectives for 2017. For many analysts, the world has entered a ‘post-truth’ era. We believe that, in this context, providing people with correct facts is more than never needed. We wish to contribute to a regain of trust in cultural institutions through our Web Archiving activities, in scientific progress and the power of data. By providing businesses and consumers with transparent and data-driven information, we hope to restore faith in technology and help them reach informed decisions.
We wish you the best. The IRM Team.
Temporal Web Analytics Workshop (TempWeb): call for papers
Next April, the 7th edition of the TempWeb workshop will be held for 3 days on the sunny shores of Perth, Western Australia.
As usual, the workshop will be held in conjunction with the prestigious World Wide Web Conference - the annual forum bringing together some of the most influential members of the web community. IMR - represented by its founder Julien Masanès - is still an active member of the board of the Workshop.
The objectives haven’t changed over the years – help shaping a community of interest on the research challenges and possibilities resulting from the introduction of the time dimension in Web analysis. This year’s edition will focus on investigating infrastructures, scalable methods, and innovative software for aggregating, querying, and analyzing heterogeneous data at Internet scale.
The calls for papers are now open - submission deadline: January 7, 2017. We are looking forward to reading your original and clever papers and hope to see you in Perth!
IMR x ENSSIB: our expertise and academic commitment
For the 5th time, IMR is about to give its annual class to students enrolled in the Digital Archiving Master 2 at ENSSIB Lyon. Ever since they’ve created this forward-looking master’s degree on Digital Archiving and Web Archiving, IMR has been giving a class to provide them with a practical example of what can be done in their field – to complete their theoretical lessons.
We wish to prepare future students not only for their jobs as digital conservators & record managers but also broaden their views on Web Archiving goals, stakeholders, and methods. For instance, we will introduce them to our other products – B2B and B2C – to reveal them the full potential of their knowledge in Web Archiving.
We hope the students will enjoy the class and embrace the potential of Web archiving related data in their future career!
Bomerce Blog: insights from the Bomerce community
For the 1st time ever at IMR we are writing a blog animated by the Bomerce marketing and management teams. We believe blogging is one of the most valuable tools businesses can use to engage with customers. As we are developing a B2C app, we couldn’t think of an easier and more pertinent way to share our analysis, views, and tips with online buyers. We find this new challenge really exciting and hope it will result in a two-way conversation with members of the Bomerce community.
