Abstract

Librarians whose patrons need access to scientific and technical conference proceedings will find the Index to Scientific and Technical Proceedings a multi‐faceted library reference tool designed with their needs in mind. ISTP provides comprehensive current worldwide coverage of scientific and technical conference proceedings, packaged for ease of use for a variety of library purposes, ranging from reference use to use in acquisitions and interlibrary loans. The table of contents format of the main Contents of Proceedings Section of the monthly issues of ISTP, like the table of contents format of the Institute for Scientific Information's Current Contents publications, makes current awareness browsing for research and for acquisitions of new conference proceedings possible for both scientists and librarians. The six index access points to this main section facilitate quick convenient narrowing of scan when time is a factor. The semiannual cumulations provide similar capability for retrospective searches. To date, librarians have found both library staff and scientists using ISTP require a minimum of training in its use.

Abstract

In a closed conference the identity of all conference participants is known by others and all participants are notified when a new user joins the conference. The Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) supports signalling of several conference models, but not of closed conferences. Introduces an extension of SIP for closed multiparty conferences. The extension expands SIP for the functionality for discovery of participant identities in a conference. Furthermore, it ensures that each conference participant is notified before a new participant joins. Verifies this extension by applying it to two SIP conference models – conference with conference server and full‐mesh conference. Ends with an analysis of additional signalling traffic that this extension generates.

Abstract

The study reported here focuses on the world of professional conference managers and hotel managers and tests for a degree of consensus between them as to what attributes are salient to the selection of a hotel as a conference venue. Both a strong consensus and an operational rather than a facilities focus emerges. The suspicion is raised that re‐occurring operational problems lie behind the consensus.

Abstract

Purpose

The value of the events industry is increasing worldwide. An essential component for successful events is creating a unique experience by offering gamification. A conceptual model is proposed, exploring pre-event game communication and its effect on attendees' value perceptions, willingness to participate, word of mouth intentions and emotional commitment during gameplay at conference events.

Design/methodology/approach

Analysis of variance and structural equation modeling were employed to test the model using data collected from 177 attendees recruited from hospitality and tourism association network listservs and online research company.

Findings

Results reveal that perceptions of event gamification increase word of mouth intentions, willingness to participate and emotional commitment.

Practical implications

The study contributes to the knowledge of conference events with recommendations for incorporation of game elements for meeting planners to enhance attendee behaviors at the event.

Originality/value

This study is among the first to examine positive behavioral outcomes of using games at conference events.

Abstract

Social movement scholarship points to the significance of collective identity in social movement emergence. This chapter examines the relationship between structural identities, such as race, gender, and sexuality, and the collective identity of student activist conferences in order to analyze how groups succeed or fail at engaging difference. Utilizing ethnographic participant observation at two student activist conferences – one of majority Black students and the other of majority white male students – this chapter employs an intersectional framework in analyzing the resonance of organizational collective action frames. This chapter finds that cultural resonance, frame centrality, and experiential commensurability are all important factors in engaging difference, and that the utilization of political intersectionality in framing may shape frame resonance. This framework that applies intersectionality to framing contributes to social movement analysis by recognizing how structural identities shape collective identity and group mobilization.

Abstract

Purpose

Identifying the frontiers of a specific research field is one of the most basic tasks in bibliometrics and research published in leading conferences is crucial to the data mining research community, whereas few research studies have focused on it. The purpose of this study is to detect the intellectual structure of data mining based on conference papers.

Design/methodology/approach

This study takes the authoritative conference papers of the ranking 9 in the data mining field provided by Google Scholar Metrics as a sample. According to paper amount, this paper first detects the annual situation of the published documents and the distribution of the published conferences. Furthermore, from the research perspective of keywords, CiteSpace was used to dig into the conference papers to identify the frontiers of data mining, which focus on keywords term frequency, keywords betweenness centrality, keywords clustering and burst keywords.

Findings

Research showed that the research heat of data mining had experienced a linear upward trend during 2007 and 2016. The frontier identification based on the conference papers showed that there were five research hotspots in data mining, including clustering, classification, recommendation, social network analysis and community detection. The research contents embodied in the conference papers were also very rich.

Originality/value

This study detected the research frontier from leading data mining conference papers. Based on the keyword co-occurrence network, from four dimensions of keyword term frequency, betweeness centrality, clustering analysis and burst analysis, this paper identified and analyzed the research frontiers of data mining discipline from 2007 to 2016.
