On 3rd September the Workshop on Text Information Retrieval (TIR 07) takes place in Regensburg, Germany. I’ll be there presenting our work (Michael Granitzer, Roman Kern and me) on folksonomy characteristics: Aspects of Broad Folksonomies (download pdf). Main contribution of the paper is that tag similarity in the del.icio.us folksonomy follows a power law in many cases. This means that many tags have only few highly related tags, while the similarity to other tags is rather low.
You can find the whole program as well as the contributions (as pdf) on the TIR07 website.
