1)  Infographics (A0 poster): EU parliament groups

We show how are the automatically detected network communities, created from the co-voting and retweet networks, related to the actual political groups in the EU parliament.



2)   Demo: Major news events

We create a multi-layer news network, which exhibits temporal evolution of the co-occurrence of entities layer, the major news events layer, and the corresponding sentiment layer. The live spatio-temporal network visualization is provided at



3)   Demo and infographics (A0 poster): The refugee crisis
We demonstrate the evolution of the recent refugee crisis, happening right now. We monitor the engagement of the European population on Twitter in relation to the migration issues, and their sentiment leaning in different European countries. The evolution in recent weeks will be demonstrated with geo-coded Twitter response on a country-level map of Europe.
