*********Call for Workshop Participation*******

In conjunction with the 5th World Conference on Research Integrity (WCRI) – http://www.wcri2017.org/

May 28, 2017, Amsterdam, Netherlands


Although the responsibility for the integrity of research ultimately lies with researchers, all stakeholders involved do try to ensure the integrity of research in their part of the research and publication process. As research output increases, a variety of tools are needed for proper and scalable execution of this responsibility. An obvious example category of such tools are plagiarism checkers, which compare a research manuscript with published journal articles or other material available on the internet. Recent advances in technologies like text mining and image processing have been leading to further developments in e.g. automatic validation of research (and its associated reporting) or detection of image manipulation.

This workshop aims to bring together those interested in exploring current and future applications of technology for better science, with a focus on how text mining and image processing technologies can be put to use in this context. Apart from publishers, editors, and others directly involved in validation of research, the workshop is also seeking participation from experts in applicable technology areas like text mining, natural language processing, and image processing.

The workshop will provide a variety of presentations from researchers, developers, and software providers working in the areas mentioned, and provides ample opportunity for discussion.
