WeGov partner OU participated in the third IEEE International Conference on Social Computing, in 9th-10th October, 2011 in Boston, USA. The Third IEEE International Conference on Social Computing (SocialCom2011) provides a key forum for researchers and industry practitioners to exchange information regarding advancements in the state of art and practice of social computing. In this event, the OU team presented their work for anticipating discussion activity on community forums. OU addressed two main research questions: which features are key to stimulating discussions; and, how do these features influence discussion length? This analysis offers policy makers the opportunity to focus on posts that are bound to generate a higher attention from the public.
