The entire body of research literature is currently estimated at 100-150 million publications with an annual increase of around 1.5 million. Systematically reading and analysing the full body of knowledge is now beyond the capacities of any human being. Consequently, it is important to better understand how we can leverage Natural Language Processing/Text Mining techniques to aid knowledge creation and improve the process by which research is being done. This workshop aims to bring together people from different backgrounds who: (a) have experience with analysing and mining databases of scientific publications, (b) develop systems that enable such analysis and mining of scientific databases (especially those who manage publication databases) or (c) who develop novel technologies that improve the way research is being done.
