The purpose of the Italian Information Retrieval Workshop (IIR)
is to provide a meeting forum for stimulating and disseminating
research in Information Retrieval, where Italian researchers
(especially young ones) and researchers affiliated with Italian
institutions can network and discuss their research results in
an informal way.


The first three editions of the Italian Information Retrieval
Workshop series took place in Padova (2010 --, Milano (2011 --, and Bari (2012 --


IIR 2013 will offer an opportunity to present and discuss both
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 searches);
* 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 design);
* Users (e.g., user models, user studies, search interface, personalized search, human-computer IR);
* 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 IR).


Papers may range from theoretical works to system descriptions.
We particularly encourage PhD students or early-stage
researchers to submit their research; we also welcome
contributions from the industry. The conference languages are
Italian and English. Submissions must be written in English or
Italian and follow the guidelines set by Springer at
Papers must be submitted through EasyChair at the address . Each
paper will be reviewed by at least two PC members.

Authors are invited to submit:

* Full original papers (up to 12 pages)
* Short original papers (up to 8 pages)
* Extended abstracts containing descriptions of ongoing projects or presenting already published results (up to 4 pages)

Authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit their
paper for publication in the on-line proceedings, which will
appear in the CEUR-WS on-line proceedings series
(; the proceedings will be indexed by DBLP
(in line with the IIR 2010, 2011 and 2012 editions -- see
Submission details will be published on the IIR 2013 website.
