Extended deadline for submissions February 15 2008
1st workshop on Efficiency Issues in Information Retrieval
in conjunction with
ECIR'08 30th European Conference on Information Retrieval

March 30, Glasgow UK


The workshop will be held during ECIR'08 in Glasgow (UK).

The call for papers aims at original high-quality presentations
dealing with typical and new efficiency issues in Information
Retrieval (IR). Some of the
topics of the accepted contributions would include, but are not
limited to:

 * exploiting compression in traditional/web IR systems,
 * multi-core architectures for efficient traditional/web IR,
 * caching for fast query processing,
 * static/dynamic pruning for efficient traditional/web IR systems,
 * efficient dynamic indexing,
 * efficient filtering,
 * load balancing,
 * fast auto-completion,
 * tolerant retrieval,
 * scalable search in P2P architectures,
 * efficient multimedia IR,
 * scalable routing in distributed architectures,
 * parallel and distributed techniques for IR.

The organisers will also conduct a guided discussion among all the
participants regarding to future trends in scalability of search
engines and new architectures, and the transferability of the research
results to a full production real environment. A discussion panel of
selected experts in the field will also be held. We are planning to
consider a selection of the best accepted papers for publication on an
special issue.


 * Feb 15: Paper submission deadline
