I am very excited that our paper “Predicting IMDB Movie Ratings Using Social Media” by Andrei Oghina, Mathias Breuss, Manos Tsagkias, and Maarten de Rijke won the best poster award at 34 th European Conference on Information Retrieval (ECIR 2012)!
Andrei and Mathias are currently towards the end of their masters degree at University of Amsterdam. The idea of this poster came up while we were brainstorming for a project for an IR course. Great job guys!
Special thanks go to Yahoo Labs Barcelona for organizing this year’s ECIR, and for supporting this award.
