Awareness Support for Knowledge Workers in Research Networks - Very brief PhD presentation Paderborn February 2012 Awareness Support for Knowledge Workers in Research Networks - Very brief PhD presentation Paderborn February 2012 Presentation Transcript

  • Support for Knowledge Workers in Research Networkswarenes Very brief introduction to my PhD and the results Wolfgang Reinhardt 09.02.2012
  • Agenda• Research questions• Methodology• Core results• What’s next? 2
  • Research Questions• Main research question was: “How can we best support knowledge workers’ awareness in Research Networks?” 3 View slide
  • Research Questions• further sub-classified in four clusters A. What characterizes knowledge workers? B. What specific meaning does the term ‘awareness’ take on in the context of Research Networks? C.What data sources may be useful to support awareness in Research Networks? D. What technology can be used to support awareness in Research Networks? 4 View slide
  • Cluster A (knowledge work)1. What are differentiable knowledge worker roles?2. What are typical knowledge actions that knowledge workers perform? 5
  • Cluster B (awareness)1. How do researchers define awareness in the context of Research Networks?2. What are different forms and aspects of awareness in Research Networks?3. What could a model of awareness in Research Networks look like? 6
  • Cluster C (data sources)1. Which data sources of scholarly knowledge artifacts are suited to support awareness in Research Networks?2. What awareness support features can be derived from the analysis of scientific output? 7
  • Cluster D (technology)1. What software architectures may support the analysis of multiple knowledge artifacts to support the awareness of knowledge workers?2. Which future recommender systems can be derived from the findings of this thesis?3. What kind of application may be best suited for integrating the findings of this thesis? 8
  • Methodology• tried to test all theoretical models and hypotheses empirically• different methods • expert interviews • online questionnaires • sensor data analysis • user evaluations • analyses of social media & scientific output 9
  • Chapters Introduction Discussion 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Awareness Support in Scientific Events A Widget-based approach for Awareness Support in RNs Analyzing 5 years of EC-TEL Mining and visualizing RNs using the AAN approach Understanding the Meaning of Awareness in RNsKnowledge Worker Roles and Actions

  • Chapter 3• goals • understand the complexity of the term awareness in Research Networks (B.1) • identify different forms and aspects of awareness in RNs (B.2) • derive a model of awareness in RNs (B.3)• methodology • expert interviews (N = 42)
  • Chapter 3• results • succinct description of awareness in RNs • six forms of awareness • five aspects of awareness • Layered Model of Awareness in RNs

  • Chapter 5• goals • research more mature RNs in conferences (C.1) • extend AAN & reference implementation (D.1) • identify missing awareness support (C.2) • propose future recommender systems (D.2)• methodology • artifact analysis, textual similarity, SNA
  • Chapter 5• results • very fragmented community • top authors that are not connected • unconnected researchers dealing with the same topics • some very similar publications

  • Chapter 6• goals • develop prototype that considers results of Chapter 3 • test if tailored apps better support researchers’ awareness (D.3)• methodology • paper prototyping, user evaluation
  • Chapter 6• results
  • Chapter 6• results • researchers asked for widget-based interfaces • significant better awareness support, more user- friendly, help carrying out tasks more effectively, better technology support
  • Chapter 7• goals • integrate empiric results in a software prototype to support researchers‘ awareness in a certain niche (D.3) • derive future scientific recommenders (D.2)• methodology • implementation, no formal evaluation yet
  • Chapter 7• results • generic organization process of scientific events • identified phases and roles involved in the organization • identified issues and lacking awareness support
  • What’s next?• public defense • 05.04.2012 - 16.00 precisely Open University of the Netherlands• PhD party • Chez moi 27
  • What’s next?• continue analysis of RNs • near copy detection, similarity thresholds, sociofacts in research domains• continue to develop and evaluate ginkgo• continue to provide prototypes of awareness supporting tools for researchers• midterm goal: dedicated Research 2.0 project 28
