Publication Analysis of the Formal Concept Analysis Community
S. Doerfel, R. Jäschke, and G. Stumme. Formal Concept Analysis - 10th International Conference, ICFCA 2012, Leuven, Belgium, May 7-10, 2012. Proceedings, volume 7278 of Lecture Notes in Computer Science, page 77-95. Berlin/Heidelberg, Springer, (2012)
We present an analysis of the publication and citation networks of all previous editions of the three conferences most relevant to the FCA community: ICFCA, ICCS and CLA. Using data mining methods from FCA and graph analysis, we investigate patterns and communities among authors, we identify and visualize influential publications and authors, and we give a statistical summary of the conferences’ history.
