Semantic structuring of conference contributions using the Hofmethode - Zurich Open Repository and Archive


Michel, O; Läge, D (2010). Semantic structuring of conference contributions using the Hofmethode. In: I-KNOW 2010 , Graz University of Technology, 1 September 2010 - 3 September 2010, 445-451.

Abstract

The similarity relation of a number of texts is important not only for congress
organizers (who need to group the proposed contributions to meaningful sessions) but to
everybody who wants to find certain information within a larger number of texts. Existing
information retrieval methods compare texts according to their similarity. Because these
methods mostly remain on the surface of the words, the resemblance is not primary a semantic
one, but a stylistic and vocabulary dependent one. Based on psychological considerations we
have developed an algorithm called Hofmethode, which compares the semantic 'environment'
of key words. Using the example of the SGP congress we show in this paper how the
Hofmethode can be used to help both congress organizers and participants to find the
appropriate contributions.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
