Semantics, Analytics and Visualisation : Enhancing Scholarly Dissemination

Lyon, France

Semantics, Analytics, Visualisation : Enhancing Scholarly Dissemination
Workshop co-located with The Web Conference 2018


After the great success of the past three editions, we are pleased to announce SAVE-SD 2018, which wants to bring together publishers, companies and researchers from different fields (including Document and Knowledge Engineering, Semantic Web, Natural Language Processing, Scholarly Communication, Bibliometrics, Human-Computer Interaction, Information Visualisation, Bioinformatics, and Life Sciences) in order to bridge the gap between the theoretical/academic and practical/industrial aspects in regards to scholarly data.

The following topics will be addressed :

  • semantics of scholarly data, i.e. how to semantically represent, categorise, connect and integrate scholarly data, in order to foster reusability and knowledge sharing ;
  • analytics on scholarly data, i.e. designing and implementing novel and scalable algorithms for knowledge extraction with the aim of understanding research dynamics, forecasting research trends, fostering connections between groups of researchers, informing research policies, analysing and interlinking experiments and deriving new knowledge ;
  • visualisation of and interaction with scholarly data, i.e. providing novel user interfaces and applications for navigating and making sense of scholarly data and highlighting their patterns and peculiarities.

Open Research Data to Support Sustainable Health Initiatives

Bruxelles, Belgique
Hôtel Renaissance

Frontiers is pleased to host its second Data Services Workshop, to be held on 24 April 2018 at the Hotel Renaissance in Brussels. The meeting is organized in collaboration with the EU Horizon 2020 projects OpenMinTed and OpenUp, in which Frontiers is a full partner, and SwissCore, the Swiss contact office for European research, innovation and education in Brussels.

This year’s workshop focuses on the application of open research data to support sustainable health initiatives. Drawing lessons from recent successes in the use of big data and artificial intelligence in data-intensive health research, it aims to discuss policy challenges and actions necessary in Europe to unleash the full potential of open research data in health for the benefit of society.
