  Trip report: index

An overview of interesting ideas during conferences I visited. Organised by themes.

[I'm going to work on it next couple of days. Links and updates will follow. Be patient, please.]


Themes (note: there is something on weblogs in each of them :)


ED-MEDIA04 proceedings are offline (CD). The best way to get more is to Google/contact the authors.

I-KNOW 04 proceedings are offline (paper). I link to papers/presentations if authors provided them online. Some of the presentations will be online at the conference web-site (hopefully soon enough). I'll try to go back and to link to them, otherwise check links to the program next to each reference.

BlogWalk 3.0 didn't have any proceeding or presentations, just Open Space discussion. I have only brief notes which wouldn't help you much. Notes of other people could be found at BlogWalk channel. The best way to find out what we did there is to read blog posts, ask participants or be there next time :)

BlogTalk 2.0 is covered online pretty well, but most of the papers are not ready (deadline is early September). I tried to link as much as possible, but I guess there is more online. BlogTalkViennaNotes wiki pages give good impression about sessions and should have more links if people are good enough to add them :) Many weblogs posts could be found via BlogTalk channel as well. Or Google is always there for you :)))

MILK forum: most of the presentations are online. I tried to provide an overview in my post, otherwise check MILK web-site.

  Trip report (3): knowledge/community mapping

Ideas and presentations from conferences I visited, on community/knowledge mapping (see other themes).  

It's difficult to draw the line between community and knowledge mapping: in most cases you want to know not only who is there and what they are talking about, but more precisely who knows what. The two themes are here just for an indication of where most effort goes in a specific case.

Community mapping

SELaKT - Social Network Analysis as a method for expert localisation and sustainable knowledge transfer by Tobias Mueller-Prothmann and Ina Finke at I-KNOW

  • abstract (and link to full-text if you are ready to pay), presentation
  • really interesting presentation that I managed to miss; on SNA applied in KM context

Blogosphere community formation, structure and visualization by Juan J. Merelo, Beatriz Prieto, Fernando Tricas at BlogTalk 2.0

  • abstract, presentation (OpenOffice format which I wasn't able to open), wiki notes
  • SNA (+tools) overview, results of analysis of Spanish weblogs 
  • if you are into SNA on weblogs talk to these guys!

Applying Social Network Analysis to a small Weblog Community: Hubs, Power Laws, the Ego Effect and the Evolution of Social Networks by Michael Schuster

  • abstract, wiki notes
  • bit of theory + case: community dynamics in (relatively closed) (relatively small) weblog community

Knowledge mapping

Supporting drug discovery research through knowledge modelling and integration by Edy S. Liongosari, Anatole V. Gershman & Mitu Singh at I-KNOW KM/learning track

  • nothing is online so far, but you can check older presentation (3.1MB!) that gives an idea or check other publications
  • interesting work on creating interconnected maps based on data from different sources...

Shared Conceptualizations in Weblogs by Anjo Anjewierden, Rogier Brussee and me

Ideas from MILK: multimedia interactions for learning and knowing project

  • community knowledge maps on large screens integrated with contact/presence awareness

Ontologies, topic maps, expert profiling, visualisations, etc.

Note: there was a lot on these topics at I-KNOW, check the program and special track on Semantic Web and Knowledge Discovery (many presentations are online).

Selected presentations (didn't go personally to most of them!), all links go to .pdf files

  Trip report (2): presence

Ideas and presentations from conferences I visited, somehow connected with the theme of presense (see other themes).

  Trip report (1): blogs and wikis implemented

Ideas and presentations about implementations of weblogs and wikis from conferences I visited (see other themes). These are the highlights grouped in themes (relevant for our research); I'll try to link to full sources as much as possible.

Enhancing Blogs with a dual interaction design by Brigitte Roemmer-Nossek at BlogTalk 2.0

  • abstract, wiki notes
  • case study: virtual communication among a class of trainees and among their coaches during on-the-job training
  • results
    • coaches didn't expept the tool (not many, mainly to communicate with trainees, but not between each other), trainees did
    • weblogs worked better than discussion forum and chat in two previous cases

Learning from weblogs of others (re: weblog apprenticeship)

    • paper, presentation
    • conceptual framework, "public weblogs" case and possible limitations of implementing in companies

    • Gabriela, is anything online?
    • a case of weblog implementation in a company
    • study of how weblog posts could be useful as resources for (more) formal learning programs => yes, they are useful

Collective blogging from the view of a context-oriented understanding of knowledge by Markus Glötzel at BlogTalk 2.0

    • abstract, wiki notes
    • a case of weblog implementation
    • study of how people contextualise observations through blogging and what others can learn from it => weblogs allowed totally exterior person to construct narrative based on what information had been stored in the weblogs
