Workshop "Information Retrieval 2010"
held by the Special Interest Group on Information Retrieval of the Gesellschaft für Informatik (German Computing Society)
October 4-6, 2010
Workshop registration is now open. Please have a look at our registration page
Please also have a look at the overall LWA programme overview.
Each talk will be 20-25 minutes, with 5-10 minutes discussion (30 minutes in total per paper). Talks can be in German or English, but with regard to our non German speaking participants, English is preferred.
The ubiquity of search systems has led to the application of information retrieval technology in many new contexts (e.g. mobile and international) and for new object types (products, patents, music). To develop appropriate products, basic knowledge on information retrieval needs to be revisited and innovative approaches need to be applied, for example by allowing for user interaction or by taking the user's situational context into account. The quality of information retrieval needs to be evaluated for each context. Large evaluation initiatives respond to these challenges and develop new benchmarks.
The workshop Information Retrieval 2010 of the Special Interest Group on Information Retrieval within the German Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI) provides a forum for scientific discussion and the exchange of ideas. The workshop takes place in the context of the LWA "Learning, Knowledge and Adaptivity" workshop week (LWA, Oct 4-6, 2010) at the University of Kassel in Germany. This workshop continues a successful series of conferences and workshops of the Special Interest Group on Information Retrieval. The workshop addresses researchers and practitioners from industry and universities. Especially Doctorate and Master students are encouraged to participate. An Industry Session will stimulate the discussion between information retrieval professionals and academics. The workshop is expected to include German as well as English presentations.Program Chairs:
