The various ways of interacting with social media, web collaboration tools, co-authorship and citation networks for scientific and research purposes remain distinct. In this paper, we propose a solution to align such information. We particularly developed an exploratory visualization of research networks. The result is a scholar centered, multi-perspective view of conferences and people based on their collaborations and online interactions. We measured the relevance and user acceptance of this type of interactive visualization. Preliminary results indicate a high precision both for recognized people and conferences. The majority in a group of test-users responded positively to a set of statements about the acceptance.

Editor's Notes

  • Make sure the link between the user profiles and the Linked Open Data entities is explicitly mentioned and pointed (the above layer – below layer connection).

    Mention vocabularies last as formalization of the linking
  • Opencv nodejs lib
    Client side face detection -> opencv + emscripten

  • Solved by:

    Tweeting more about conferences
    Following more people who do
  • Solved by

    Retrieving more tweets (prototype is limited)
    Looking at other hashtags
    Looking at the context of text
