Modélisation d'expertise scientifique pour la constitution de comités de programme

Abstract : Academic publishing in specialized journals and conference proceedings is the main way to communicate progress in science. The underlying editorial and program committees represent the cornerstone of the evaluation process. With the development of journals and the increasing number of scientific conferences held annually, searching for experts who would serve in these committees is a time-consuming and yet critical activity. This PhD thesis focuses on the task of suggesting program committee (PC) members for scientific conferences. It is organized into three parts. First, we propose a modelling of the multifaceted scientific expertise of researchers based on a weighted heterogeneous graph. Second, we define scientometric indicators to quantify the criteria involved in the composition of CPs. Third, we design a CP member suggestion approach for a given conference, combining the results of the aforementioned scientometric indicators. Our approach is experimented in the context of leading conferences of our research community: SIGIR, considering its editions from 1971 to 2015, and topically close conferences.
