OAIR 2013 - Open research Areas in Information Retrieval - Searching the Web of People and Data
(the 10th International Conference in the RIAO series)

22 to 24 of May 2013
Lisbon - Portugal
Venue: ISEL

ACM in-Cooperation / SIGIR

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 knowledge.
Submissions are invited to present recent, original and unpublished research addressing the OAIR 2013 theme: Searching the Web of People and Data.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
•Modeling the web of people
•Personal semantics search
•Query log analysis
•Personal semantics search
•Search over Social Networks
•Sentiment analysis
•Social Multimedia and Multimodal IR
•Social Topic detection
•Structuring Unstructured Data
•System Architectures for Social IR
•User Interfaces and Interactive IR

We welcome submissions from both research and industrial communities addressing the main conference theme.
Papers must be submitted electronically using the following link:

Accepted papers must follow the

Submitted papers must describe unpublished original work, emphasizing completed or advanced research.
A parallel submission to other venues should be clearly indicated to the program committee.
Submissions are double-blind and will be reviewed by at least three program committee members.
Submissions must contain no information identifying the author(s) or their organization(s): Do not put the author(s) names or affiliation(s).
The submissions will be evaluated on the basis of originality, relevance, technical quality, and presentation.
Papers can be submitted as full papers, short papers and demo papers.
Full papers are appropriate for describing substantial research with relevant evaluation. Short papers may describe ongoing research and preliminary results.
All accepted papers in both categories will be published in the conference proceedings.

Full papers must not exceed 8 pages, short papers must not exceed 4 pages and demo papers must not exceed 2 pages including the abstract.

Submissions should be in PDF.
Papers exceeding the limits will be rejected without review.
At the conference, full papers will be presented as a talk and short papers will be presented as a poster.

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 processing.
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 prototypes.
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 innovativeness.
