As a result, numerous event detection techniques have been proposed to cope with the steadily increasing rate and volume of social media data streams. Although most of these works conduct some evaluation of the proposed technique, comparing their effectiveness is a challenging task. In this paper, we examine the challenges to reproducing evaluation results for event detection techniques. We apply several event detection techniques and vary four parameters, namely time window (15 vs. 30 vs. 60 mins), stopwords (include vs. exclude), retweets (include vs. exclude), and the number of terms that define an event (1...5 terms). Our experiments use real-world Twitter streaming data and show that varying these parameters alone significantly influences the outcomes of the event detection techniques, sometimes in unforeseen ways. We conclude that even minor variations in event detection techniques may lead to major difficulties in reproducing experiments.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Beel, Joeran</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Weiler, Andreas</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Gipp, Bela</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2016-09-21</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2016-10-31T09:33:03Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Grossniklaus, Michael</dc:contributor> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Grossniklaus, Michael</dc:creator> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
