On 11 June 2015 Katerina Andreadou had the opportunity to present two of CERTH-ITI’s recent works that are part of REVEAL at the 13th International Workshop on Content-Based Multimedia Indexing (CBMI 2015) in Prague, Czech Republic.

On 19 May 2015 we had the opportunity to present some of our research outcomes at the Pacific Asia workshop on Intelligence and Security Informatics (PAISI) in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
As part of the journalistic user requirements gathering in REVEAL, we conducted 24 interviews with journalists, mostly throughout 2014. Some of the findings and insights into dealing with user-generated content have now been published in the paper “Emerging Journalistic Verification Practices Concerning Social Media”. 50 users can download the paper for free.
On 9-10 March Peggy Valcke from iMinds-KU Leuven’s ICRI/CIR presented REVEAL at the audiovisual conference “Strengthening the European audiovisual media market – for the development of the European identity”, organized by the Latvian Presidency of the Council of the EU.
In REVEAL we also look at what the processing of Social Media data means from a legal perspective. In this contribution, Aleksandra Kuczerawy from KU Leuven’s ICRI / CIR investigates the EC’s ‘Notice and Action’ initiative.
Another hearing of the Google Advisory Council on the Right to be Forgotten took place in Brussels on Tuesday, 11 November 2014 .
