    Abstract

    We analyze text discussions with the aim of using statement data to assess the status of an in-progress discussion. We assume convergent discussions with three discussion status types: Publication, Active, and Convergent. Then we propose an automatic method for evaluating discussion status by network analysis. Experimental evaluation indicates that the method is useful. We also achieved positive results in comparison with manual analysis.
