Call for Papers

Eighth International Workshop on
Evaluating Information Access (EVIA 2017)

5 December, 2017, Tokyo, Japan
co-located with the NTCIR-13 Conference

http://research.nii.ac.jp/ntcir/evia2017/

###########################################################


SCOPE AND TOPICS
================

We invite submissions for the Eighth International Workshop on Evaluating Information Access (EVIA 2017) which will be held in conjunction with NTCIR 13 in Tokyo, Japan, on December 5, 2017.

Information Access technologies provide the interface between human information needs and digital information resources. The reliable evaluation of these technologies has been recognized for decades as central to the advancement of the field. As information retrieval technologies become more pervasive, the forms of retrieval more diverse, and retrieval tools richer, the importance of effective, efficient, and innovative evaluation grows as well.


We invite both short papers (2-4 pages) and long papers (8-10 pages) addressing one or more of the following topics, as well as any other topic related to the evaluation of information access:
- Test collection formation, evaluation metrics, and evaluation environments
- Statistical issues in information retrieval evaluation
- User studies and the evaluation of human-computer interaction in information retrieval (HCIR)
- Evaluation methods for multilingual, multimedia, or mobile information access
- Novel information access tasks and their evaluation
- Evaluation and assessment using implicit user feedback, crowdsourcing, living labs, or inferential methods
- Evaluation issues in industrial and enterprise retrieval systems
- Reproducibility issues in information retrieval evaluation


Accepted papers will be included in the EVIA 2017 proceedings in the CEUR Workshop Proceedings (CEUR-WS.org) series, indexed by DBLP, Google Scholar, Scopus and others.

All the accepted papers will be given a presentation slot during EVIA.

EVIA is open to all attendees at NTCIR.
