The Spanish Information Retrieval Society (SERI), organizer of this event, has as main goal to support IR in Spain. This conference aims to continue with the work developed on its previous editions and to provide an international forum where researchers from both academia and industry can meet, exchange experiences and present innovative works. CERI welcomes contributions from a wide range of knowledge areas. Specifically, we encourage the participation of not only researchers and professionals from the Computer Science field, but also researchers with background and experience on Information Sciences, Linguistics, or any other related area to IR.
All scientists interested in IR related fields are welcome to participate. We encourage national and international researchers from both academia and industry to submit original papers related to any aspect of IR including, but not limited to the following:
Performance, scalability, architectures and efficiency
Data structures on IR
IR Quality Evaluation
User aspects: interaction, user studies and interfaces
Filtering and recommendation systems
Structured retrieval (XML, etc.)
IR in social networks
Vandalism detection in the Web, in Wikipedia and opinion spam
Detection of pedophilia, stalking and bullying
