Description

Recent research on scientific collaboration shows that distributed interdisciplinary collaborations report comparatively poor outcomes, and the inefficiency of the coordination mechanisms is partially responsible for the problems. To improve in-formation sharing between past collaborators and future team members, or reuse of collaboration records from one project by future researchers, this pa-per describes systems that automatically construct a knowledge base of the meetings from the calendars of participants, and that then link reference to those meetings found in email messages to the correspond-ing meeting in the knowledge base. This is work in progress in which experiments with a publicly avail-able corporate email collection with calendar entries show that the knowledge base population function achieves high precision (0.98, meaning that almost all knowledge base entities are actually meetings) and that the accuracy of the linking from email messages to knowledge base entries (0.90) is already quite good.

Enhancing Scientific Collaboration Through Knowledge Base Population and Linking for Meetings
