The Future of Information Retrieval Evaluation. How can IR
evaluations be made more "realistic" in light of new tasks, dynamic
content, collaborative efforts, and multilingual information sources?
Information Access in a Multilingual World: Transitioning from
Research to Real-World Applications. What are realistic success
predictors for multilingual technologies such as search,
summarization, filtering, etc.?
Information Retrieval and Advertising. New research in computational
advertising, particularly on the use of IR techniques combined with
statistical modeling, machine learning, large-scale data processing,
optimization, microeconomics, and human-computer interaction.
Large-Scale Distributed Systems for Information Retrieval (LSDS-IR
2009). Addressing scalability issues surrounding increasing numbers
of user requests and indexable pages given that data centers cannot
Learning to Rank for Information Retrieval. How to use training data
to construct a ranking model for search, summarization, and other tasks.
Redundancy, Diversity, and Interdependent Document Relevance. How can
ranking, performance assessment, and learning to rank move beyond the
assumption that the relevance of documents in a ranking is independent?
Search in Social Media (SSM 2009). How should we search in social
media? What are the needs of users, and models of those needs,
specific to social media search? How does search interact with
existing uses of social media?
Understanding the user - Logging and interpreting user interactions in
information search and retrieval. Bringing together researchers from
IR as well as human-computer interaction to explore promising research
directions with respect to logging, interpreting, integrating, and
using feedback data.
