Call For Papers



Workshop Information Retrieval 2008 (WIR 2008)

6.-8. October 2008
University of Würzburg, Germany

Submission Deadline 6. June 2008


Information Retrieval shapes today´s knowledge society. The use of search
engines is part of daily life of most internet users. The ubiquity of
search systems has led to the application of information retrieval
technology in many new contexts (e.g. mobile and international) and for
new object types (products, patents, music). In order to develop
appropriate products, basic knowledge on information retrieval needs to be
revisited and innovative approaches need to be taken. The quality of
information retrieval needs to be evaluated for each context. Large
evaluation initiatives respond to these challenges and develop new
benchmarks. The workshop Information Retrieval 2008 provides a forum for
scientific discussion and the exchange of ideas. The workshop of the
Special Interest Group for Information Retrieval within the German
Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI) takes place in the week of workshops LWA
"Learning, Knowledge and Adaptivity" (LWA, 6.-8. Oct. 2008 at the
University of Würzburg, Germany). This workshop continues a success­ful
series of conferences and workshops of the special interest group on
information retrieval ( ). The workshop addresses
researchers and practitioners from industry and universities. Especially
PhD and Master candidates are encouraged to participate. An Industry
Session will stimulate the discussion between information retrieval
professionals and academics. The workshop is expected to include German as well as English presentations.

Submission should address current issues in Information Retrieval. They
include (but are not limited to):
-Development and optimization of retrieval systems
-Retrieval with structured and und multimedia documents
-Evaluation and evaluation research
-Text mining and information extraction -Multilingual systems
-Digital libraries
-User interfaces and user behavior
-Machine learning in information retrieval
-Information retrieval and knowledge management
-Information retrieval and the semantic web
-Search Engine Optimization -Social Search

Types of Submissions:
Full Papers (6 to 8 pages)
Short Papers (4 pages): Position papers or work in progress
Demonstration (2 pages): Presentation of systems or prototypes

Submissions are welcome in English and German. They have to follow the
conference format and should be submitted as PDF-files at All
submissions will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers. The
conferences format can be found at:
