With the prevalent use of information technology, it is very easy to reach nearly any information. However, if it is desired to be specialized in an area, the first thing to do is to know who are the experts in that area. Since experts have valuable knowledge, it is important to find these experts. Also, it is vital to be aware of trends for researchers who want to be expert in a topic or who want to enter into a new area. This work includes an empirical study for finding experts and research trends in academic world. We created a citation network from KDD proceedings and an author-keyword bipartite graph from bibliographic data of the same set of proceedings. Then, we applied link analysis algorithms HITS and PageRank, respectively. The results show that it is possible to detect two expert types (one that works intensively on a single subject and another having high level knowledge of various subtopics of a subject-matter). Moreover, topical trends are identified as doing peak, periodic, and having the same shape rather than showing absolute increase, decrease or stationary pose.
