THE SIGIR 2008 WORKSHOP ON FOCUSED RETRIEVAL:
QUESTION ANSWERING, PASSAGE RETRIEVAL, ELEMENT RETRIEVAL

Singapore, 24 July 2008 (part of SIGIR 2008)
http://www.cs.otago.ac.nz/sigirfocus2008/

DETAILS
Standard document retrieval finds atomic documents, and leaves it to the
end-user to locate the relevant information inside the document. Focused
retrieval removes this latter task from the end user by providing more
direct access to relevant information. That is, focused retrieval
addresses information retrieval and not simply document retrieval.
Focused retrieval has been used to extract relevant sections from
academic documents; and the application to text book searching is
obvious (such commercial systems already exist).

The purpose of this workshop is to raise issues and promote discussion
on focused retrieval - that is, Question Answering (QA), Passage
Retrieval, and Element Retrieval (XML-IR).

Papers discussing focused retrieval and related issues are sought.
Topics may include but are not limited to: Theory, Experimentation,
Application, Interaction, and Experience. Please refer to the full call
( http://www.cs.otago.ac.nz/sigirfocus2008/ ) for further details.

LOCATION
The workshop was part of SIGIR 2008 in Singapore.
