3rd Italian Information Retrieval workshop (IIR 2012)

January 26-27, 2012

Dipartimento di Informatica
Università degli Studi di Bari "Aldo Moro"
Bari, Italy

Follow us on:

The purpose of the Italian Information Retrieval (IIR) workshop series is to
provide a meeting forum for stimulating and disseminating research in
Information Retrieval and the related disciplines, where Italian
researchers, especially early stage researchers, can exchange information
and present results in an informal way.

The first two successful editions took place in Padua (2010, and Milan (2011,
IIR 2012 will take place at the Dipartimento di Informatica (DIB),
Università di Bari "Aldo Moro" (, Bari, Italy, on
January 26-27, 2012 (just after EVALITA 2011, that will be held on January
24-25, 2012 in Rome – about 4 hours from Bari by train).

IIR 2012 will offer an opportunity to present and discuss theoretical and
empirical research. Relevant topics include, but are not restricted to, the
following subjects:
* Ranking (e.g., retrieval models, learning to rank, diversity, combining
* Queries (e.g., query intent, query log analysis, query reformulation,
question answering)
* Content analysis (e.g., document representation, information extraction,
clustering, classification, sentiment analysis, cross-lingual IR)
* Efficiency (e.g., indexing, compression, distributed IR)
* Filtering (e.g., content-based filtering, collaborative filtering,
recommender systems)
* Evaluation (e.g., test collections, effectiveness measures, experimental
* Users (e.g., user models, user studies, search interface, personalized
* Web IR (e.g., link analysis, social network analysis, blog search,
computational advertising)
* Multimedia IR (e.g., image search, video search, music IR)
* Structured IR (e.g., XML search, desktop search, entity search)
* Other applications (e.g., genomics IR, legal IR, mobile IR, patent search,
digital libraries, IR for cultural heritage, enterprise search, geographic

Papers may range from theoretical works to system descriptions and each
paper will be reviewed by at least two PC members. We particularly encourage
Ph.D. students or early stage researchers to submit their research, and we
also welcome contributions from the industry. While the conference languages
are Italian and English, submissions must be written in English and follow
the guidelines set by Springer at

Authors are invited to submit:
-- Full original papers (up to 12 pages)
-- Short original papers (up to 8 pages)
-- Short papers, that is, extended abstracts containing descriptions of
ongoing projects or presenting already published results (up to 4 pages)

Accepted papers will be published on-line in the CEUR-WS proceedings series
(, and they will be indexed by DBLP (as it happened for
IIR 2011 and IIR 2010, Submission
