On the 29th November 2017, Angelo, Andrea and Thiviyan attended the second edition of SpringerNature HackDay in London (@ SpringerNature Campus).
Aliaksandr Birukou, Executive Editor of Computer Science at Springer Nature and collaborator of our research team at the Knowledge Media Institute, also joined our group on the HackDay.
The whole event aimed at joining together the skills and interests of many developers and researchers with SciGraph, for advancing discovery.
The main web page for the event is here: https://github.com/SN-HackDay/Advancing-discovery-with-research-data (or here in case someone removes it).
As a team, we worked on Venue-centric trends problem. In particular, our projects provides to editors, conference organizers and many others, a dashboard to understand how knowledge flows across countries and continents, who are the main producers and consumers of the research output for a given conference, whether the conference is open to interdisciplinarity, and many other questions.

People are hard at work hacking ideas at @SpringerNature #sn_hackday – we’ve got teams looking at identifying data associated w/conferences; linking updated datasets to published articles; helping find the best repository for data; & applying standardised ontologies to data! pic.twitter.com/Mpzvax62W4— Scientific Data (@ScientificData) November 29, 2017
