September 1 - September 4

About this Workshop

Intelligent algorithms for data mining and information retrieval are the key
technology to cope with the information need challenges in our
media-centered society. Methods for text-based information retrieval receive
special attention, which results from the important role of written text,
from the high availability of the World Wide Web, and from the enormous
impact of Web communities and social media on our life.

The development of advanced information retrieval solutions requires the
understanding and the combination of methods from different research areas,
including machine learning, data mining, computer linguistics, artificial
intelligence, user interaction and modeling, Web engineering, or distributed
systems. This workshop provides a platform for presenting and discussing
new solutions, novel ideas, or specific tools focusing on text-based
information retrieval. The following list organizes classic and recent
topics for which contributions are welcome, but are not limited to:

- Theory. Retrieval models, language models, similarity measures, formal

- Web Search. Ranking and recommendation, indexing, semantic search, social
search, query classification and segmentation, vertical search, authority

- Personalization and User Mining. Just-in-time retrieval, personalized
retrieval, context detection, user profiling

- Multilinguality. Cross-language retrieval, parallel text mining

- Evaluation. Corpus construction, experiment design, performance measures

- Text Mining and Classification. Text reuse, topic identification,
sentiment analysis, opinion mining, dynamic taxonomy generation

- NLP. Information extraction, text summarization and simplification,
named entity recognition, question answering, representation learning

- Social Media Analysis. Social network analysis, trend analysis,
information diffusion, short text retrieval

- Information Quality. Text quality assessment, quality-based ranking,
readability assessment, trust and author reputation

- Big Data Text Analytics. Parallel and distributed retrieval, online
algorithms, scalability

- Semantic Web. Meta data analysis and tagging, knowledge extraction,
inference, maintenance

- Deep Learning. Natural language understanding, information retrieval

The workshop is held for the twelfth time. In the past, it was
characterized by a stimulating atmosphere, and it attracted high quality
contributions from all over the world.

Accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of DEXA’15 Workshops published by the Conference Publishing Services (CPS) of IEEE Computer
