About this Workshop

In recent years, information channels have become increasingly distributed,
opinionated, and vary in their infor-mation quality and trustworthiness of
the stated facts and arguments. The development of advanced retrieval solutions
requires the understanding and the combination of methods from different
research areas, including machine learning, (big) data mining, natural language
processing, artificial intelligence, user interaction and modeling, and Web

The TIR workshop provides a platform for presenting and discussing new solutions,
novel ideas, or specific tools for future retrieval systems. The following list
organizes classic and recent topics for which contributions are welcome, but
not limited to:

- Theory. Retrieval models, similarity measures, formal analysis

- Evaluation. Corpus construction, experiment design, performance measures,
reproducibility, benchmarking of Information Retrieval and Machine Learning

- Information Quality and Provenance. Text quality assessment, text reuse, trust
and author reputation, provenance analytics

- Natural Language Technologies for IR Applications. Opinion mining, text
summarization and simplifica-tion, question answering, discourse and
argument mining

- Personalization. Personalized retrieval, context detection, user profiling,
user modeling

- Search User Interfaces. General purpose search, special purpose search,
adaptive interfaces, retrieval in cognitive settings

- Web Search. Ranking and recommendation, query classification and segmentation,
vertical search, dynamic taxonomy generation

- Social Media Analytics. People analytics, social network analysis, trend analysis

- Semantic Web. Meta data analysis and tagging, knowledge extraction,
inference and linking

- Deep Learning. Representation learning for text mining

The TIR workshop is held for the fifteenth time. Past workshops could attract
high-quality and innovative contributions and were characterized by an open and
stimulating atmosphere.
Accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of DEXA’18 Workshops published
by the Conference Publishing Services (CPS) of IEEE Computer Society.

Important Dates

April 16, 2018: Deadline for paper submission (23:59 CET), extended
