PhD Program: Knowledge Discovery in Scientific Literature (KDSL)

This PhD program has been launched in April 2013 at the Computer Science Department of the   Technische Universität (TU) Darmstadt in collaboration with the German Institute for International Educational Research (DIPF) in Frankfurt/Main. Since July 2014, it is now continued in collaboration with DIPF and is enriched by the researchers from the Department of Social and Historical Studies at the TU Darmstadt.

Research Focus

Our research is about novel methods of language and knowledge processing applied to the research publications in the educational domain. For an overview of the current topics in the KDSL program, please see Nam et al. (2014).

We research cutting-edge methods for multi-label classification, argumentation mining, focused crawling, relation extraction and temporal network analysis. KDSL applies these methods to answer research questions related to the educational research on novel corpora. Thus, we enable new forms of intelligent information access for humanities researchers.

We are part of the Research Initiative „Knowledge Discovery in the Web“ at the Technische Universität Darmstadt. Besides, we work together with the LOEWE Research Center „Digital Humanities“ (Univ. of Frankfurt, TU Darmstadt) and the Institute for Computational Linguistics (Univ. of Heidelberg).
