The World Wide Web is the largest source of openly accessible data, and the
most common means to connect people and share resources. 
However, exploiting these interconnected Webs to obtain information is still
an unsolved problem.

This conference calls for papers describing recent research in Information
Retrieval concerning the integration between a Web of Data and a Web of
People, to transform pure data into information, and information into usable

Submissions are invited to present recent, original and unpublished research
addressing the OAIR 2013 theme: Searching the Web of People and Data.


Submissions may address one or more of the following subjects, but are not
limited to:

·         Adapting search to Users

·         Advertising and ad targeting

·         Aggregation of Results

·         Community and Context Aware Search

·         Community-based Filtering and Recommender Systems

·         Community-based IR Theory

·         Community-oriented Content Representation

·         Evaluation of Social IR

·         Improving Web via Social Media

·         Including Crowdsourcing in Search

·         Merging Heterogeneous Web Data

RIAO conferences have been held since 1985 

The Open research Areas in Information Retrieval (OAIR) conference is a
triennial conference, addressing research topics related to the design of
robust and large-scale scientific and industrial solutions to information

Previous OAIR editions organized by the C.I.D. (under the name RIAO, this is
the 10th RIAO conference) were held at Grenoble (1985), MIT (1988),
Barcelona (1991), Rockefeller University (1994), Montreal (1997), Paris
(2000), Avignon (2004), Carnegie Mellon University (2007) and Paris VI
University – Paris (2010). 

OAIR conferences provide peer-reviewed scientific sessions and peer-reviewed
demonstrations of innovative industrial applications and advanced research

OAIR Conferences are distinguished by the conjunction of both high-level,
selected scientific research resulting from a global call-for-papers with
the presentation of selected, innovative prototypes. Recently appearing
innovative products are also showcased at the Conferences. Both the
scientific paper and product selections are made by committees of
International experts. Products are chosen uniquely on the basis of their
