An Analysis of IHC and HCII Publication Titles: Revealing and Comparing the Topics of Interest of their Communities
Keywords:HCI, scientific community, papers, articles, titles
Analyzing how the conferences of a given research field are evolving contributes to the academic community in that the researchers can better situate their research towards the advancement of knowledge in their area of expertise. Thus, in this work we present the results of a correlation analysis performed within and between-conferences of the field of Human-Computer Interaction, using data from the conference on Human-Computer Interaction International (HCII) and from the Brazilian Symposium on Human Factors in Computing Systems (IHC). More than 209 thousand words from the titles of over 18 thousand publications from both conferences were analyzed in total, using different quantitative, qualitative and visualization methods, including statistical tests. The analysis of words from the tiles of publications from both conferences and the comparison of the ranking of these words indicate, amongst other results, that there is a significant difference in relation to the main and most covered topics for each one of these conferences.
