Call for papers

DART 2012
6th International Workshop on
Information Filtering and Retrieval: novel distributed
systems and applications

October 5-6, 2012
Barcelona (Spain)

satellite event of KDIR 2012

follow us on:

Nowadays users are more and more interested in information
rather than in mere raw data. The huge amount of accessible
data sources is growing rapidly. This calls for novel
systems providing effective means of searching and
retrieving information with the fundamental goal of making
it exploitable by humans and machines.
DART focuses on researching and studying new challenges in
distributed information filtering and retrieval. In
particular, DART aims to investigate novel systems and tools
to distributed scenarios and environments. DART will
contribute to discuss and compare suitable novel solutions
based on intelligent techniques and applied in real-world
Information Retrieval attempts to address similar filtering
and ranking problems for pieces of information such as
links, pages, and documents.
Information Retrieval systems generally focus on the
development of global retrieval techniques, often neglecting
individual user needs and preferences.
Information Filtering has drastically changed the way
information seekers find what they are searching for. In
fact, they effectively prune large information spaces and
help users in selecting items that best meet their needs,
interests, preferences, and tastes. These systems rely
strongly on the use of various machine learning tools and
algorithms for learning how to rank items and predict user


DART 2012 is aimed at putting together practitioners and
researchers working on pervasive and intelligent access to
distributed information, multimedia, and web services.

Authors should submit an original paper in English,
carefully checked for correct grammar and spelling, using
the on-line submission procedure. The submission must have
up to 13 pages otherwise it will be rejected without review.
Please check the paper formats page so you may be aware of
the accepted paper page limits.
The guidelines for paper formatting provided at the
conference web ought to be used for all submitted papers.
The preferred submission format is the same as the camera-
ready format. Please check and carefully follow the
instructions and templates provided. Each paper should
clearly indicate the nature of its technical/scientific
contribution, and the problems, domains or environments to
which it is applicable.

Papers that are out of the workshop scope or contain any
form of plagiarism will be rejected without reviews. Please
read INSTICC's ethical norms regarding plagiarism and self-
plagiarism (

Remarks about the on-line submission procedure:
1. A "double-blind" paper evaluation method will be used. To
facilitate that, the authors are kindly requested to produce
and provide the paper, WITHOUT any reference to any of the
authors. This means that is necessary to remove the authors
personal details, the acknowledgements section and any
reference that may disclose the authors identity.
LaTeX/PS/PDF/DOC/DOCX/RTF format are accepted.
2. The web submission procedure automatically sends an
acknowledgement, by e-mail, to the contact author.

After the reviewing process is completed, the contact author
(the author who submits the paper) of each paper will be
notified of the result, by e-mail. The authors are required
to follow the reviews in order to improve their paper before
the camera-ready submission.


The workshop proceedings will be published in a workshop
proceedings book and on CD-ROM support, under an ISBN
reference. Also, all papers presented at the workshop venue
would be available at the SciTePress Digital Library

The corresponding-authors will be notified at all time, for
the submission, notification, and confirmation on the
Submitting a paper to the workshop means that, if the paper
is accepted, at least one author should attend the
conference to present the paper and should then register to
the conference with a workshop fee.
