This is one great co9nference you should attend if you have the time and inclination to check out latest advances in the world of Knowledge discovery. While KXEN ( from whom I consult on social madia) is a Gold Sponser- the following posts on workshops, demos and papers will show you just how much technical stuff as opposed to marketing bullshit and jazz ( as in other confs) is available in this conference. So pack your bags, and Viva La France for a grueling refreshing course in Knowledge Discovery and Text Mining. Incidentally KXEN intend to show their path breaking cutting edge social network analysis software KSN here.
