Usage

What is it?

The Proceedings Title Parser Service is a specialized search engine for scientific proceedings and events. It searches in a corpus/database based on data from

  1. http://www.openresearch.org
  2. http://ceur-ws.org
  3. http://www.wikidata.org (in progress)
  4. http://confref.org (in progress)
  5. https://dblp.org/ (in progress)
  6. GND (in progress)
  7. http://www.wikicfp.com/cfp/ (planned)
  8. ...

Search Modes

The Proceedings Title Parser currently has three modes:

  1. Proceedings Title Parsing
  2. Named Entity Recognition (NER)
  3. Extract/Scrape

All three modes expect some lines of text as input. The mode is automatically detected/selected by the content of the lines given as input.

Example

The input:

Proceedings of the 2020 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2020)
BIR 2019
http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-2599/
  • will trigger Proceedings Title Parsing mode for the first line
  • Named Entity Recognition mode for the second line
  • Extract/Scape mode for the third line

Proceedings Title Parsing mode

In Proceedings Title Parsing mode the content of a line is parsed word by word to find typical elements of Proceedings titles like

  • ordinal (First, III., 6th, 23rd)
  • city (Paris, New York, London, Berlin, Barcelona)
  • country (USA, Italy, Germany, France, UK)
  • provinces (California, Texas, Florida, Ontario, NRW)
  • scope (International, European, Czech, Italian, National)
  • year (2016,1988,2017,2018,2019,2020)
  • ...

while the above elements can be found by comparing with a list of known cities, countries, provinces, ... finding the event acronym needs a lookup in a corpus/database of proceedings and events which is automatically performed to check whether a known event acronym like ISWC, ICEIS, SIGSPATIAL, ... might be found with the given context e.g. year. If the acronym (with year) is found a link to the resulting source record is shown.

Example

Input

Proceedings of the 2020 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2020)

Named Entity Recognition mode (NER)

In named entity recognition mode the words to be looked up can be directly entered without following the patterns of typical proceedings titles. Syntax elements like "Proceedings of ... " may be left out. This mode will often also give good results but can not use the information provided by syntactically elements like "at". For an example "Proceedings of the 1st conference of the history of Rome at Paris" the NER equivalent "1 conference history Rome Paris" will obviously be ambiguous.

Extract / scrape mode

If the line contains an url of a known source of conference of proceedings title information the page will be automatically visited and the meta data extracted.
