RIAO 2007 - 8th Conference - May 30 to June 1, 2007
Pittsburgh, PA, USA
LARGE-SCALE SEMANTIC ACCESS TO CONTENT (TEXT, IMAGE, VIDEO AND SOUND)
CALL FOR PAPERS
RIAO'2007 will be held at Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh,
Pennsylvania, USA from May 30 until June 1, 2007. The RIAO
conferences, organized by the "Centre de Hautes Etudes Internationales
d'Informatique Documentaire - C.I.D.", treat robust and large-scale
scientific and industrial solutions to information processing. This is
the 8th RIAO after conferences in Grenoble (1985), MIT (1988),
Barcelona (1991), Rockefeller University (1994), Montreal (1997),
Paris (2000), and Avignon (2004).
The conferences are composed of peer-reviewed scientific sessions and
demonstrations of innovative industrial applications and advanced
Scope of the Conference
Papers are invited on recent, substantial, original and unpublished
research that has been validated to the level of the creation of a
functioning prototype. We are interested in large-scale solutions to
the problem of accessing the semantic content found in unstructured
text, images, video and audio. Submissions should describe solutions
to these problems from the following perspectives:
* Automatic indexing of video, images, and speech
* Improved indexing of text, image, video and sound
* Ontologies and unstructured data
* Semantic Web and Ontologies for Full-Scale Information Retrieval
* Automatically producing textual descriptions of images
* Automatically adding metadata to video and sound
* Indexing and retrieval of mixed-media documents
* Indexing interactive documents
* Natural interface dialogue
* Multimedia question answering systems
* Competitive Intelligence
* Intelligent Search Agents
* Multimodal search
* Architectures for semantic treatment of very large databases
* Algorithms for semantic treatment of very large databases
* Comprehension-based question answering and summarization
* Cooperative indexing between media
* Semantics for less studied languages
* Semantic representations and standards
* Collaborative construction of semantic resources
* Indexing multilingual collections
* Automatic extraction of ontologies from unstructured data
* Aligning multilingual ontologies
* Language resources for multimedia indexing
* Extracting semantic resources from raw data
* Semantic annotation of blogs and videoblogs
* Exploiting large-scale resources for e-learning
* Structuring cultural heritage
* Technological, commercial, industrial watch systems
* Semantic access to large and open archives
* David A. Evans (Americas)
* Chantal Soulé-Dupuy (Europe)
* Sadaoki Furui (Asia)
We welcome submissions both from the research community and industry
treating the main conference theme of treating the semantic content of
large quantities of text, images, videos, and sound.
Submitted papers should describe original work, emphasizing completed
or well advanced, rather than intended, research. The state of
completion of the reported work must be clearly indicated. Where
appropriate, results should be rigorously evaluated; the assessment of
statistical significance for quantitative results is encouraged.
Submissions should contain original material that has not been
previously presented to the scientific community. A parallel
submission to other publication for a as well as a significant overlap
in contents with previously published work should be clearly indicated
to the program committee.
All submissions will be reviewed by at least three program committee
members. The submissions will be judged on originality, relevance,
technical quality, and presentation.
Papers must be submitted on the conference's web site:
Papers can be submitted in two categories: full papers and short
papers, where full papers are appropriate for describing substantial
research with well-evaluated results and short papers will typically
describe ongoing research and preliminary results. All accepted papers
in both categories will be published in the conference proceedings. At
the conference, full papers will be presented as a talk and short
papers will be presented as a poster.
The long papers must not be more than 20 pages, on one column,
starting with an abstract. The short papers must not be more than 6
pages, on one column, starting with an abstract. Submissions should be
in Microsoft Word format or in PDF.
The conference proceedings will be available to conference attendees
and through the CID after the conference.
CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

The RIAO conferences are meeting places for scientific and industrial
specialists in information retrieval. There are sites for
presentations of both high-level peer-reviewed scientific research and
prototypes and of innovative products, selected by a special call for
products. A global call for products is sent at the same time that the
call for papers. The products presented are chosen uniquely on the
basis of their innovativeness.
The "Centre de Hautes Études Internationales d'Informatique
Documentaire" (C.I.D.) organizes the RIAO conferences every three
years since 1985. RIAO stands for "Recherche d'Information Assistée
RIAO conferences have two selection committees: a Program Committee
for scientific papers, and an Applications Committee which seeks out
and selects those innovative products for the conference.
The RIAO conferences are not trade shows since the teams presenting
innovative products are selected and do not pay for the place and time
that they are given during the conference.
Companies whose product fulfills the criteria of novelty and of
innovativeness can fill in a dossier designed by the conference
organizers that describes their submitted product.
In addition of the dossier, product submitters will have to provide
access to an online or CD version of the product that demonstrates the
claimed innovative functionalities of the product. Application
Committee members will verify the functionalities of the product.
After examination of the dossier and the demonstration of each
product, the Application Committee members select the best products.
Each chosen company will be provided with a demonstration space
(including table and chair) free of charge. The space is near the
amphitheatre in which the scientific papers are presented.
Each company may also be given a special time slot (15 minutes) to
give a short presentation about the product.
In addition, innovative products chosen for RIAO 2007 will be able to
present their financial prospects to technology financing specialists
(venture capital, private equity) that will be specifically invited
for these presentations.
The general topic of the Call for Applications is:
INNOVATIVE TOOLS PROVIDING ACCES TO VERY LARGE VOLUMES OF MULTIMEIDA
AND/OR MULTILINGUAL DATA
Descriptions of the products demonstrated during RIAO 2007 will be
published in the proceedings.
Proposals of products will be sent on the web site of the conference
