The First International Workshop on Mining Scientific Publications will take place on 14 June 2012 in Washington DC, US.

Digital libraries for scientific publications are becoming increasingly central to the research process. They are not only used for traditional tasks, such as finding and storing research outputs, but also as a source for discovering new research trends or evaluating research excellence.

Advances in natural language processing, information retrieval and the semantic web are making it possible to transform the way scientific publications are used. However, in order to be able to improve these technologies and carry out experiments, researchers need to be able to easily access and use large databases of scientific publications.

The event will bring together experts from both side of the Atlantic who are interested in analysing and mining databases of scientific publications. Topics will include:
- infrastructures, systems, datasets or APIs that enable analysis of large volumes of scientific publications;
- semantic enrichment of scientific publications by means of text-mining, crowdsourcing or other methods;
- analysis of large databases of scientific publications to identify research trends, high impact, cross-fertilisation between disciplines, research excellence, etc.For further information, please visit: http://core-project.kmi.open.ac.uk/jcdl2012/
