In conjunction with the Atlanta Conference on Science and Innovation Policy (ATLC) October 10-11, the VP Institute is sponsoring the 7th Global TechMining Conference October 9 (*with a special joint ATLC/GTM Opening Reception - Poster Session that evening).
Tech Mining, a special form of “Big Data” analytics, aims to generate practical intelligence using bibliometric and text-mining software (e.g., VantagePoint, TDA) as well as other analytical & visualization applications for analyses of Science, Technology & Innovation (ST&I) information resources. Management and policy target uses include Competitive Technical Intelligence (CTI), and university, government, and industry research management (enriching grant applications, scoping projects, avoiding redundant research, and assessing R&D effectiveness).
The goal of the conference is to ENGAGE cross-disciplinary networks of analysts, software specialists, researchers, policymakers, and managers to ADVANCE the use of textual information in multiple science, technology, and business development fields. The conference program will address key CHALLENGES in:
Text-mining tools and methods
This conference is intended for researchers and students across multiple fields, especially Scientometrics, Public Policy, Management of Technology and Information Science.
