In the interest of creating new corpora, I'd like to invite the list members to participate in a keyphrase extraction research study:

Researchers at the University of Ottawa's School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (Faculty of Engineering) are recruiting volunteers to participate in a study on how people index keyphrases when reading computer science research articles as part of a Masters thesis. Each volunteer will be asked to read 20 short papers, where each is expected to take approximately 15 minutes to read, and record the keyphrases that summarize the document. The study will be conducted via email at the volunteer's leisure, and will conclude by February 28th.

If you are interested and you meet the following eligibility criteria, please e-mail Chris Fournier at cfour037 at site.uottawa.ca. All volunteers will be accepted, provided that you meet the following eligibility criteria:

- Your field of study or expertise is related to Computer Science or

Software Engineering; and

- You are fluent in English.

The purpose of the experiment is to see how people assign keyphrases to scientific literature, and specifically computer science related papers. A degree of competency in computer science related topics is then required.

Please note that the data collected during the study will be anonymized and then made public. Any personal information besides the annotations provided will be kept private. Thank you for your consideration.
