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

http://irlab.dc.fi.udc.es/ecir/


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.

IMPORTANT DATES

 * Feb 15: Paper submission deadline
