HNR Workshop 2015
To mine and to tie: Text mining and network analysis for historians
April 10th-12th 2015

The 9th event in the series „Historical Network Research“ – a workshop for semantical-social networks – takes place at Ruhr University Bochum in April 2015. The workshop series offers first insights into the methodology as well as a platform for exchanging the latest techniques in network analysis to all interested researchers of all fields of study. With this aim, the workshop in Bochum is going to deal with the text mining method which enables an increased automation of creation of networks. Additionally, the question concerning the dimension of texts represented this way is taken into consideration. Here, with semantical-social networks you can deal with terminological and conceptual contexts on one hand, and, on the other hand, with the relationships between entities.
