Call For Papers

The Second International Workshop on Diversity in Document Retrieval (DDR-2012)
12th February 2012, Seattle WA, USA

In conjunction with WSDM 2012 - the 5th ACM International Conference
on Web Search and Data Mining

When an ambiguous query is received, a sensible approach is for the
information retrieval (IR) system to diversify the results retrieved
for this query, in the hope that at least one of the interpretations
of the query intent will satisfy the user. Diversity is an
increasingly important topic, of interest to both academic researchers
(such as participants in the TREC Web and Blog track diversity tasks),
as well as to search engines professionals. In this workshop, we
solicit submissions both on approaches and models for diversity, the
evaluation of diverse search results, and on applications and
presentation of diverse search results.

Call for Papers
We invite submissions of original research papers (8 pages) and
position papers (5 pages) in the general area of diversity in document
retrieval. Potential topics include (but are not limited to):

Modelling Diversity:
Implicit diversification approaches
Explicit diversification approaches
Query log mining for diversity
Learning-to-rank for diversification
Clustering of results for diversification
Query intent understanding
Query type classification
Modelling Risk:
Probability ranking principle
Risk Minimization frameworks and role diversity
Test collections for diversity
Evaluating of diverse search results
Measuring the ambiguity of queries
Measuring query aspects importance
Product & review diversification
Opinion and sentiment diversification
Diversifying Web crawling policy
Graph analysis for diversity
Legal precedents & patents
Diverse recommender systems
Diversifying in real-time & news search
Diversification in other verticals (image/video search etc.)
Presentation of diverse search results

Submission Instructions
Submissions should report new (unpublished) research results, or
ongoing research. Both technical paper submissions (upto 6 pages
including references) and position papers (upto 4 pages including
references) will be orally presented. All paper submissions must be
written in English following the ACM option 2 templates. Submissions
should not be anonymised.

Papers should be submitted through the Workshop's EasyChair submission
system, which will open at least one month before the submission

Important Dates
5th December: Papers due
10th January: Notification of Acceptance
17th January: Camera-Ready papers due
12th February: DDR-2012 Workshop

DDR 2012 will be co-located with the 5th ACM International Conference
