The international symposium aims to bring together researchers and developers to exchange new ideas and latest achievements in the field of information retrieval (IR). The scope of the symposium covers applications, systems, technologies and theoretical aspects of information retrieval in text, audio, image, video and multi-media data.

AIRS2008 welcomes submissions of original papers in the broad field of information retrieval. Technical issues covered include, but are not limited to:

* IR theories and models
* Text mining issues: classification, clustering, summarization, extraction
* Web related issues: web mining, search engine, semantic web
* Multimedia retrieval: image, video, audio, metadata
* Experimentation: test collection, corpus, evaluation methodology
* Systems and implementation issues: efficiency, integration
* Application of IR technology: e-commerce, e-learning, digital libraries, ubiquitous computing, bioinformatics, medical informatics, telematics, etc.
* Cross-language IR: retrieval with multiple languages
* Natural language processing and IR: Question answering, summarization, information extraction, libraries, ubiquitous computing, bioinformatics, etc.

The proceedings (including both regular and poster papers) will be published by Springer as part of their Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. All the Papers in the LNCS series will be EI-indexed.

Authors are invited to submit original contributions, not exceeding 5,000 words in English (or 8 pages) for full papers and 4 pages for posters. Submissions should be in MS Word or PDF format.
