"Text-mining, Analysis, and Visualization"
13-14 September, 2011
In conjunction with the 2011 Atlanta Conference on Science and
Innovation Policy, VPInstitute along with Georgia Tech's Program in
Science, Technology and Innovation (STIP) and Technology Policy
Assessment Center (TPAC), will sponsor the 1st Global TechMining
Conference. The goal of this conference is to advance the application
of textual information to research occurring in multiple fields.
"Tech mining" tools include bibliometric and text mining software
(e.g., VantagePoint) as well as other visualization applications.
Topics will cover case studies/research results, development of new
indicators, and development of enhanced software tools (e.g., macros).
Within this context, the conference will address a family of themes,
including: o Research profiling (or "landscaping") by researchers to
identify best opportunities, findings in adjacent fields, and
o R&D assessment (program evaluation and such)
o Sense-making in the Science, Technology & Innovation domain (i.e.,
public policy analyses)
o Intelligence gathering to support decision-making in the private
sector (e.g., Management of Technology)
o Best practices in VantagePoint software-based text-mining, analysis,
This conference is intended for researchers and students across
multiple fields, especially: " Scientometrics
" Public Policy " Management of Technology
" Information Science
