AUGUR presented at JCDL 2018

The ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries in 2018 (JCDL 2018) took place last week in Fort Worth (Texas). Angelo attended the conference to discuss his recent advances showed in the research paper “AUGUR: Forecasting the Emergence of New Research Topics”. In brief, Augur is a framework analysing the diachronic relationships between research areas and […]

Great success for the SKM3 team at ISWC 2018

The SKM3 team, the KMi research group on scholarly analytics, will present three full papers at the 2018 International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC), the premiere international venue for the Semantic Web and Linked Data communities, which will be held in October in Monterey, California. The SKM3 team succeeded in having a paper accepted in each […]

Best Paper Award at SAVE-SD 2018

The SKM³ team is proud to announce that the paper “Geographical trends in research: a preliminary analysis on authors’ affiliations” presented by Andrea at the workshop on Semantics, Analytics, Visualisation: Enhancing Scholarly Dissemination (SAVE-SD) held at The Web Conference 2018 in Lyon has been awarded the Best Paper Award. We thank the organising committee and Springer […]

The Computer Science Ontology (CSO)

The Computer Science Ontology (CSO) is a large-scale ontology of research areas that was automatically generated using the Klink-2 algorithm [1] on the Rexplore dataset [2], which consists of about 16 million publications, mainly in the field of Computer Science. The Klink-2 algorithm combines semantic technologies, machine learning, and knowledge from external sources to automatically […]

Technology-Topic Framework

The Technology-Topic Framework (TTF) is a novel approach which uses a semantically enhanced technology-topic model to forecast the propagation of technologies to research areas. TTF characterizes technologies in terms of a set of topics drawn from a large-scale ontology of research areas over a given time period and applies machine learning on these data to forecast […]

Augur – Early Forecasting of Research Trends

Augur is a novel approach to the early detection of research topics. Augur analyses the diachronic relationships between research areas and is able to detect clusters of topics that exhibit dynamics correlated with the emergence of new research topics. Augur operates in three steps. First, it creates evolutionary networks describing the collaboration between research topics over […]

Springer Nature HackDay Summary Video

Couple of months ago, the SKM3 attended the Springer Nature HackDay (here is the post). Just not long ago, Springer Nature released a short video featuring us. Summarised is also Angelo’s interview, in which he discusses the advantages of making scholarly datasets, as SciGraph, available to the public.

SAVE-SD 2018

After the great success of the past three editions, we are pleased to announce the SAVE-SD 2018 workshop. SAVE-SD aims to bring together publishers, companies and researchers from different fields (including Document and Knowledge Engineering, Semantic Web, Natural Language Processing, Scholarly Communication, Bibliometrics, Human-Computer Interaction, Information Visualisation, Bioinformatics, and Life Sciences) in order to bridge the […]

Supporting editorial activities at Springer Nature

The Open University team and Springer Nature have launched a new research project with the aim of developing new innovative solutions to support editorial activities at Springer Nature. The project will be lead by Enrico Motta and Francesco Osborne and will start on May 2018. The SKM3 team and Springer Nature have been collaborating since 2015 […]

Rexplore

Rexplore leverages novel solutions in large-scale data mining, semantic technologies and visual analytics, to provide an innovative environment for exploring and making sense of scholarly data. In particular, Rexplore allows users: To detect and make sense of important trends in research, such as, significant migrations of researchers from one area to another, the emergence of […]
