ViEWS workshop

ViEWS held its first annual workshop 25-26 September in Uppsala. The workshop consisted of a total of 30 participants who over the course of two days discussed forecasting advances in the field as well as within the project.

On the first day, the ViEWS-team presented current developments and some possible future implementations in the project. The second day was dedicated to presentations from invited speakers. As part of the workshop, meetings were held in advance, and a smaller group met for an extended workshop day to discuss strategies for how to extract data from news sources.
