This hands-on workshop will provide an opportunity for participants to explore techniques which can be used to provide automated news feeds. This can be useful for disseminating news information (IT services news or institutional news) in an automated way, which avoids the dangers of providing out-of-date news which often happens when manual approaches are taken.

The workshop is a interactive one, and participants will make use of a number of Web tools and utilities.
