Also, this event could not have been a reality without the support of many individuals, organizations, and sponsors. We are grateful to the members of the HUSO 2017 organizing committee for their help in handling the logistics and for their work to make this professional meeting a success. We hope that HUSO 2017 was a successful international forum for the exchange of ideas and results between academia and industry and for the promotion of progress in the area of human and social analytics. We are convinced that the participants found the event useful and communications very open.
