Martin Rosvall - How does the flow of ideas through science change over time?

Science is a highly dynamic, organized, and parallel human endeavor to find patterns in nature. In science, new ideas are built upon old ideas and through cumulative cycles of modeling and experimenting scientific research undergoes constant change: fields grow and shrink, merge and split. Citation patterns among scientific journals allow us to glimpse this flow of ideas and how the flow of ideas changes over time. In my talk I will present how we use information theory to uncover these changes in the myriad citations.

RATIONALE
The recent ICT revolution has given birth to a parallel world of digital traces. This change affects a wide number of contexts of collaborative knowledge creation, from casual discussions, political arguments, to scientific elaboration and participative decision-making.

Science has been the first domain to experiment this shift to a stigmergic society. No need to recall the ongoing and yet already old history of scientific publications databases construction and use. For the first time a whole community of practice including scholars, decision makers and possibly any concerned citizen has been able to get an insight into current scientific research. Despite the amazing richness of most of these catalogues (whether they are or not free or public), users have been limited to a more or less sophisticated query-based search-engine mediated access to bibliographical notices. The current challenge is to design and develop innovative tools to access this knowledge in order to enable users with new methods of navigation, interaction and data visualization of this kind of databases.
