Hot Topics and Schisms in NLP: Community and Trend Analysis with Saffron on ACL and LREC Proceedings

Paul Buitelaar, Georgeta Bordea, Barry Coughlan


Abstract
In this paper we present a comparative analysis of two series of conferences in the field of Computational Linguistics, the LREC conference and the ACL conference. Conference proceedings were analysed using Saffron by performing term extraction and topical hierarchy construction with the goal of analysing topic trends and research communities. The system aims to provide insight into a research community and to guide publication and participation strategies, especially of novice researchers.
