The rapid development of the internet, mobile internet and social media has brought unprecedented opportunities and challenges for the research of natural language processing technologies in the big data era. Such technologies include information retrieval, text mining, knowledge discovery, social media analysis, as well as machine learning, especially deep learning for natural language processing. This Advanced Disciplines Lectures “Natural Language Processing in the Era of Big Data: Theory, Algorithm and Architecture” will invite the famous experts and professors from Academia and Industry to give systematic lectures on the fundamental theories, algorithms, architecture and other hot-spot issues on natural language processing under big data environment. The objective of the lectures is to provide a three-day learning and communication platform for the young scholars and students to rapidly understand the element concepts, research contents, approaches and growing tendencies in the area.

Yiqun Liu received his B.S. and Ph. D degrees in Tsinghua University in 2003 and 2007, separately. He is now working as associate professor and vice chair at the Department of Computer Science and Technology in Tsinghua University. His major research interests is in Web Search, especially in search user behavior modeling, search performance evaluation and Web data quality estimation. He is also a Principle Investigator (PI) of a joint Center (named NExT) between National University of Singapore and Tsinghua University to develop technologies for live media search. He published around 30 papers at top-tier academic conferences and journals such as SIGIR, WWW, CIKM, WSDM, AAAI, IJCAI, ACM TWeb and JIR. He serves in the editorial board of the Information Retrieval Journal (Springer) and also as the task co-leader for the NTCIR (NII Testbeds and Community for Information access Research) IMine tasks.
