During the past few years the increasing availability of large-scale datasets that capture activities in scientific publications, patents, grant proposals, sports, enterprises, as well as activities on social media has created an unprecedented opportunity to explore patterns underlying success. The take on this important topic can be rather diverse - from exploring citations of influential scientific papers to the emergence of runaway videos on YouTube, from investigating collaboration that bring success for the team to innovations essential for the success of an enterprise, from the strategies followed by successful sports clubs to the creative patterns of famous composers. As such the tools and perspectives vary, involving social scientists, computer scientists, economists, physicists and mathematicians. The results are published in venues with non-overlapping readership.
The Quantifying Success satellite aims at bringing together scientists and researchers from different disciplines and provide a platform for them to present and discuss their recent results, identify open questions and new challenges, and develop common languages for solving problems in the emerging, fascinating field of the “science of success”. The 5th satellite on Quantifying Success will be providing opportunities to discuss different, multi- and inter-disciplinary approaches to quantify success across a variety of scientific domains, with a main focus on data-driven methods.
The satellite accepts contributed talks in the form of a 10-minute presentation with slides. Participants are invited to submit via EasyChair an abstract of maximum 1 page in PDF format, specifying title, author(s), affiliation(s) and e-mail address(es). CContributions are evaluated on a rolling base, until all slots are filled up (but no later than May 15th). Please makes sure to submit your abstract soon, if you plan on attending and contributing to the workshop.
Areas of Interest include but are not limited to the following focused topics:
Citation dynamics of papers and patents
Adoption and success of products and technologies
Dynamics in social media, such as popularity of hashtags and viral videos
Career success and longevity in different professions
Patterns behind normal and successful career in different disciplines
Prediction of future achievement and career trajectory
How institutions (e.g., universities) shape scientific production
