Budapest Workshop “Identification, location and temporal evolution of topics – August 29-30, 2016”

Budapest Workshop “Identification, location and temporal evolution of topics – August 29-30, 2016”

As first working group meeting (WG 2,3,4) Knowescape starts its activities in the last year. Please find below the programme, and a pdf with all details.

The workshop builds on a number of activities the COST Action Knowescape TD1210 has supported related to questions such as “What is a topic in science?” “How can research diversity be measured?” “How can we visualise topics, problem areas, specialties and how can we use such visualisations for navigation?”

This workshop is co-funded together with the EC-funded (FP7) project ImpactEV, a project devoted to develop concepts and methods to determine the impact of social sciences and humanities, scientific impact as well as societal impact in its various facets.

A special issue for the journal Scientometrics is in preparation, documenting the scientific progress achieved by TD1210 along of this cross-working groups thread of research.
