Project: Co-authorship networks of slovenian scholars: Theoretical analysis and visualization user interface development

Leader: dr. Sandi Klavžar
Leader on FIS: Andrej Kastrin
Duration: 1.7.2011-1.7.2014

Partners:

  1. Institute of mathematics, physics and mechanics, Ljubljana, Slovenia (leading partner).
  2. Jozef Stefan Institute, Atrificial Intelligence Laboratory
  3. Faculty of information studies in Novo mesto, Novo mesto, Slovenia.
  4. T-media d.o.o. Progressive Communications, Novo mesto, Slovenia.

The main objective of this project is to merge scientific research data and bibliographic data of individual research subjects from accessible resources into a user-friendly web application. The application would allow exploratory data analysis, data mining and visualization of complex relational data to registered researchers, institutions of national government, non-governmental organizations, and members of the public interested in it. The stated research problem consists of three main parts:

      • the integration of scientific research data and bibliographic data;
      • the development and implementation of methods and algorithms for the analysis and visualization of network data structures and texts, and
      • the analysis and evaluation of a theoretical model for generating random networks, based on the Kronecker product of adjacent matrices.
