4th December 2012. EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland (Just before Soc-info 2012). JITSO 2012 gathers the most significant international researchers that try to understand social phenomena as they unfold, mining their digital traces. JITSO 2012 has been organized through an experimental open and public reviewing process, using WordPress as a central platform for publishing and reviewer articles and for designing the structure of the workshop itself.

Timothée Giraud, Nicolas Douay and me are presenting a paper concerning the protests of Wukan (China). we are meant to present the research questions and the preliminary results of a research project, called GEOMEDIA, which intends to build a sensor of international media events, based on the just-in-time analysis of RSS feeds of newspapers.
