The Layered World of Scientific Conferences

The Layered World of Scientific Conferences
Recent models have introduced the notion of dimensions and hierarchies in social networks. These models motivate the mining of small world graphs under a new perspective. We exemplary base our work on a conference graph, which is constructed from the DBLP publication records. We show that this graph indeed exhibits a layered structure as the models suggest. We then introduce a subtraction approach that allows to segregate layers. Using this technique we separate the conference graph into a thematic and a quality layer. As concrete applications of the discussed methods we present a novel rating method as well as a conference search tool that bases on our graph and its layer separation.
