IRIS 2019 : Indo-German Workshop on Information Retrieval, Informetrics and Scientometrics
Call For Papers
Submissions to the workshop are open to researchers from any part of the world. Authors are solicited to initially submit an extended abstract (500-1000 words), present it in the workshop and then submit a full paper on the idea for consideration of publication in the special issues proposed. If you think you are ready with full length paper in any of the broad themes of the workshop, it would be better to submit them early. The submission may report research results, conceptual advances and experimental studies, describing significant advances in Information Retrieval, Informetrics and Scientometrics. Papers that describe concepts and ideas on the broad intersection of Information Retrieval, Scientometrics and Applied Informetrics would be most suitable for special issues. An indicative (but non-exhaustive) list of topics is as below:
Document Representation and Content Analysis (text representation, document structure, linguistic analysis, NLP for IR, information extraction, sentiment analysis, clustering, classification, topic models, facets, text streams).
Queries and Query Analysis (query intent, query suggestion and prediction, query representation and reformulation, query log analysis, summarization, question answering).
Retrieval Models and Ranking (IR theory, language models, probabilistic retrieval models, learning to rank, combining searches, diversity and aggregated search).
Search Engine Architectures and Scalability (indexing, compression, distributed IR).
Filtering and Recommending (content-based filtering, collaborative filtering, recommender systems).
Evaluation (test collections, experimental design, effectiveness measures, session-based evaluation, simulation).
Web IR and Social Media Search (link analysis, click models/behavioral modeling, social tagging, social network analysis, blog and microblog search, forum search, community-based QA, adversarial IR and spam, vertical and local search).
IR and Structured Data (XML search, ranking in databases, desktop search, entity search).
IR for social good, including applications for non-profit organizations, governments, and social enterprises.
Other Applications (digital libraries, enterprise search, legal IR, patent search, text reuse, new retrieval problems)
