We are excited to send out a contest dataset this April 2019 to 22 teams participating from 7 countries in a Measuring Tech Emergence contest. The contest winner will be recognized at GTM2019, October 17, 2019. For more information visit VPInstitute.org - Academic Portal. Detecting and forecasting emerging R&D topics can help focus research policy, program management, and individual research agendas. The VPInstitute is sponsoring this Measuring Tech Emergence "Contest" and complementary paper track at the 9th Global TechMining (GTM2019) "Conference" to stimulate thinking about emergence and tech mining [text analyses of Science & Technology (S&T) information resources] to generate novel and viable indicators.
Luciano Kay, Alan Porter, Jan Youtie, Nils Newman, and Ismael Rafols' paper titled "Visual analysis of patent data through global maps and overlays" appears in the recently released book Current Challenges in Patent Information Retrieval Springer (2017).
