Workshop: Semantic Web-based R&D Trend Analysis on BigData


n  Motivation

In the light of the recent wave of Big Data and its Analytics, the Semantic Web-based Trend Analysis on Big Data is quite interesting and beneficial to the researchers as well as the practitioners from engineering to business. In addition, this workshop deals with one of the advancing technologies for Semantic Web-based Big Data Analytics. Specifically, by bringing together representatives of academia and industry, the workshop will be also a means for identifying new research problems and disseminating results of the research and practice.


n  Workshop Description

R&D Trend Analysis is to discover and predict technical opportunities and technology trends using Semantic Web technologies to improve the performance of users tasks such as decision making, project management, and R&D planning. However, the analysis and prediction of R&D or business trends from various kinds of Big Data sources such as Web documents, papers and patents could furnish corporations executives or project managers with informative & predictive support for decision making on marketing, sales and product direction. As core technologies for supporting R&D Trend Analysis, Text Mining and Semantic Web have been studied and proven to be effective for decades. So, in this session, we are going to cover all aspects that relate to research and practical issues of Semantic Web-based R&D Trend Analysis on Big Data.


Topics of interest for the session will include but will not be limited to:

-       R&D Trend Analysis based on Semantic Web

-       Knowledge Acquisition for R&D Trend Analysis

-       NLP & Text Mining for R&D Trend Analysis

-       Services for R&D Trend Analysis

-       Big Data Management for R&D Trend Analysis

-       Big Data Analytics for R&D Trend Analysis
