Swiss STS Meeting, 20-22 February 2014 in Lausanne

The PoliMedia symposium: linking political debates and media.

PoliMedia is a CLARIN-funded project that aims to facilitate studies of media coverage of politics. Therefore, we develop a dataset and demonstrator in which Dutch political events (parliamentary debates) are connected to media (newspaper articles and news casts). For more information about the project, please visit

The symposium will bring together people interested in analysis of media, political data, or both, from the perspective of the social sciences and humanities as well as computer science and related disciplines.

The symposium will be held at VU Amsterdam, on January 23, 2013, from 14:00 to 17:00.

We will start with talks by, among others, Maarten Marx (UvA), Wouter van Atteveldt (UvA) and the PoliMedia team, followed by drinks.

The full program and location will be announced in early January. Please register by sending email to Max Kemman at
