Visualizing Collaborations and Online Social Interactions at Scientific Conferences for Scholarly Networking

545 views

Published on

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.

  1. 1. Visualizing Collaborations and Online Social Interactions at Scientific Conferences for Scholarly Networking Laurens De Vocht Selver Softic, Ruben Verborgh, Erik Mannens, Martin Ebner, Rik Van de Walle
  2. 2. Prototype Visualizes the snapshot of the network of a researcher Detects relevant conference hashtags for tracking Distance Number of collaborations (co-authored publications) Size Recent frequency of interaction (mentions) Color Indicate cases when mentioned or collaborated together but not in network yet (following) or not
  3. 3. Early Results Balanced
  4. 4. Early Results Not enough conference related tweets
  5. 5. Early Results Too much noise (conference unrelated tweets)
