The Third WWW Workshop on

Big Scholarly Data: Towards the Web of Scholars

http://msclab.org/bigscholar/

 

A workshop of WWW 2016 (The 25th International World Wide Web Conference)
Montreal, Canada, April 11-15, 2016

 

The BigScholar 2016 workshop aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners working on Big Scholarly Data to discuss what are emerging research issues and how to explore the Web of Scholars. Several core challenges, such as the tools and methods for analyzing and mining scholarly data will be the main center of discussions at the workshop. The goal is to contribute to the birth of a community having a shared interest around the Web of Scholars and exploring it using data mining, recommender systems, social network analysis and other appropriate technologies.

The workshop will be a full-day workshop. The format of the workshop will include one invited talk (keynote), research and position paper presentations, one discussion panel, [NEW!!] and a show-and-tell session for participants to demonstrate their Big Scholarly Data tools and visualization systems. Short videos accompanying a live demonstration are highly encouraged. The workshop will be held in April 2016 in Montreal, Canada, in conjunction with the 25th International World Wide Web Conference (WWW 2016).
