Call For Papers


The 1st International Workshop on Advances in Patent Information Retrieval
(AsPIRe'10) will be collocated with the ECIR 2010 (European Conference on
Information Retrieval).

Patent Information Retrieval is a cross cutting research area as it contains
domains such as multilingual information retrieval, image processing and
retrieval, language processing, and text categorization, clustering and
mining. The main goal of the workshop is to gather scientists from these
areas together to foster the collaboration among such interdisciplinary
areas and spark discussions on open topics related to Information Retrieval
and Machine Translation in the Intellectual Property domain in order to
advance the current state-of-the-art of patent search tools.

For more information, see the workshop webpage:

Further information on the ECIR is here:

We plan to make a subset of 440,000 documents of the MAREC patent data
corpus available soon. Participants are encouraged to apply the techniques
they develop to this dataset, where possible. This will allow the results of
the presented techniques applied to the same dataset to be compared. More
information on MAREC is here:

Research papers should be on one or more of the following topics, with an
emphasis on application to the Intellectual Property (Patent) domain:
* Semantic Annotation of Patents
* Patent Claim Analysis
* Ontology Engineering
* Corpus Analysis
* Patent Categorization
* Clustering and Visualization
* Patent Image Search
* Bibliographic Search, Network Analysis
* Machine Translation
* Cross-lingual Information Retrieval
* Digital Libraries for Patent Literature
* Case Studies
* Challenges in Patent Search
* Information Need of the Patent Searcher

Instructions for paper submission will appear on the website soon.
