Call for Papers

In order to promote discussion and action on the topic of scientometrics our workshop seeks answers to the following:

  • Publishing and supplementing research data – Beyond paper, conference and journal metadata what data could potentially be used to make meaningful inferences about various research communities? What data is necessary to demonstrate the impact our research has on academia, business and society?
  • Scientometric tools and techniques – What tools and techniques do we currently have at our disposal? What can our community contribute beyond existing research efforts that focus on topic, trend and community analysis? What measures and techniques can be used to benchmark research communities?
  • Semantic Web community challenges and opportunities – What are the data and research challenges that need to be overcome in order to better understand our community? How can be better position our technologies outside the Semantic Web community? What are the current gaps that may hinder further adoption of Semantic Web technologies, in special among enterprises?

Contributions to the workshop can be made in terms of papers and reports as well as position papers addressing different issues of the stated topics of interest.

  • Research papers and reports (up to 16 pages) and position papers (up to 8 pages), must adhere to the LNCS Style.
