This blog serves as the central communication and dissemination tool of the project group PUSHPIN (Supporting Scholarly Awareness in Publications and Social Networks) that takes place in the Computer Science Education Group at the University of Paderborn (Germany) from October 2011 until October 2012. The project group’s supervisor is Wolfgang Reinhardt. Do not hesitate contacting him in case of any questions regarding this blog or the project group as a whole.
The students that are part of the project group will be asked to continuously blog about their own progress as well as the overall progress of the project group. They will blog about their seminar topics as well as about implementation details and interesting links in the subject area of the course.
The project group will deal with the analysis of classic scholarly publications (workshop and conference proceedings, journal articles) in full text. The goal is to identify cooperation networks, detect trends as well as plagiarized content. Moreover the project group will develop a browser-based faceted search user interface and a multitouch table application.
Stay tuned for news from the project group.
