Is British HCI Important? A topic-based comparison with CHI
  We have applied topic modelling to the full-text British HCI and CHI corpora in order to automatically derive one hundred topics and their trends. We use these to compare the distributions of topics and changing foci of two conferences over the last five years. These data suggest that that, while the two conferences have significant overlap, they make quite distinct contributions to HCI.
