I joined the Program Committee of the RDSRP Special Track at the i-Know conference in Graz. The workshop focuses on recent developments around the Science 2.0 / Research 2.0 theme. Be sure to submit your work to this event.
Call for Papers
Science 2.0 has become an umbrella term for the involvement of the web in science. It spans from the utilization of Web 2.0 tools and technologies in research to a more open and sharing approach to science. Some definitions of Science 2.0 even include notions of a methodological change due to the abundance of data, and the nature of the socio-technical systems on the web. For this special track, we would like to address three issues in Science 2.0 that have proven both promising and challenging at the same time:
- The management of scientific data, both primary and secondary data (such as publication metadata, and other scientific content on the web) as a precondition for Science 2.0.
- The recommendation of people and resources as a consequential next step in an exponentially growing scientific environment.
- The change in scientific practices due to the involvement of Science 2.0 tools and technologies in the research process and the effects this has on science itself.
This one-day special track is a program item of i-KNOW 2011, the 11th International Conference on Knowledge Management and Knowledge Technologies which takes place in Graz, Austria from September 7th to September 9th 2011. The workshop provides an interdisciplinary forum for international scientists and practitioners to discuss theoretical and practical aspects of Science 2.0. i-KNOW 2011 brings together international researchers and practitioners from the fields of knowledge management and knowledge technologies. The conference will cover relevant aspects from the fields of Knowledge Management, Knowledge Discovery, Knowledge Services, Social Media, Enterprise 2.0 and the Social Web. i-KNOW 2011 will be held concurrently with I-SEMANTICS 2011, the International Conference on Semantic Systems.
Please note that there is a related call for participation in the dataTEL Challenge. Powered by STELLAR & TEAM (Mendeley) presenting the respective approaches.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Definition of data schemes and interoperability formats
- Semantic Web standards for Science 2.0
- Social mining and metadata extraction in academic resources
- Metadata quality and quality assessment
- Design and architecture of data sharing facilities
- Systems design accounting for standardized data sets
- Applications for recommendation in science
- Specific challenges for recommendation in science
- Information retrieval in academic papers
- Recommendation algorithms and quality indicators
- Changes in scientific practices due to Web 2.0
- Methodological issues and interdisciplinarity in Science 2.0
- Opportunities and threats for researchers and research organizations
- Applications in and for Science 2.0
- Awareness-support for Science 2.0 activities
