Date: 15th April 2013
WOSP 2013 will be held in conjunction with the ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries in Indianapolis, IN on July 26, 2013. The current call for papers is now open through May 26, 2013.
Digital libraries that store scientific publications are becoming increasingly important in research. They are used not only for traditional tasks such as finding and storing research outputs, but also as sources for mining this information, discovering new research trends and evaluating research excellence. The rapid growth in the number of scientific publications being deposited in digital libraries makes it no longer sufficient to provide access to content to human readers only. It is equally important to allow machines analyse this information and by doing so facilitate the processes by which research is being accomplished. Recent developments in natural language processing, information retrieval, the semantic web and other disciplines make it possible to transform the way we work with scientific publications. However, in order to make this happen, researchers first need to be able to easily access and use large databases of scientific publications and research data, to carry out experiments.
This workshop aims to bring together people from different backgrounds who:
(a) are interested in analysing and mining databases of scientific publications,
(b) develop systems, infrastructures or datasets that enable such analysis and mining,
(c) design novel technologies that improve the way research is being accomplished or
(d) support the openness and free availability of publications and research data.
