FDIA 2013: 5th Symposium on Future Directions in Information Access
in conjunction with the EUROPEAN SUMMER SCHOOL in INFORMATION RETRIEVAL

CALL FOR PAPERS

September 3, 2013, Granada, Spain

http://www.ugr.es/~essir2013/FDIA-about.php

Paper submissions via

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The 5th Symposium on Future Directions in Information Access (FDIA) will 
be held in conjunction with the European Summer School in Information 
Retrieval (http://www.ugr.es/~essir2013/) in Granada, Spain. The 
symposium aims to provide a forum for participants of the summer school 
to share their research and interaction with senior researchers in an 
informal and relaxed atmosphere. The previous symposiums were held in 
Koblenz, Germany in 2011 (with ESSIR 2011), Padova, Italy in 2009 (with 
ESSIR 2009), London, England in 2008, and Glasgow, Scotland in 2007 
(with ESSIR 2007) and have provided an entertaining and exciting forum 
for sharing new research ideas.

Why future directions, because we want to encourage submissions that 
focus on the early research such as pilot studies, presenting challenges 
and future opportunities, conceptual and theoretical work, and the 
contributions from doctoral work.

Why Information Access, because it captures the broader ideas of 
information retrieval, storage and management to include interaction and 
usage.

Symposium Aims

The IRSG FDIA Symposium is mainly turned to PhD students, researchers 
new to the field, and post doctoral researchers. The objectives are:

• To provide an accessible forum for new researchers to discuss their 
research and projects.

• To help foster formative and tentative research ideas.

• To encourage discussion and successful progression.

• To share outcomes of doctoral work.

Call for Papers

This symposium calls for research papers to be submitted on topics about 
Information Access. We especially encourage submissions on late breaking 
and formative research which presents initial work that survey and 
present future challenges and opportunities, present pilot studies, 
explore conceptual and/or theoretical models, or which present results, 
findings and future directions on experiments conducted using an 
existing approach in a new space or on a new collection.

Submissions focusing on new directions and emerging work in Information 
Access/Retrieval which create discussion and provoke reaction are 
strongly encouraged. Submissions should provide the necessary background 
and motivation of the topic, so as to maximize the benefit to the author 
and fellow participants.

A paper should aim to include the following:

• Motivation for the research
• Background and related work (with key references)
• Particular issues highlighted for discussion and main research 
questions/challenges

Late breaking and formative research papers may also wish to include:

• Description of proposed or performed research
• Outline of Conceptual/Theoretical Models
• Research methodology and experiment

Use of existing approaches papers should also include:

• Outline of Conceptual/Theoretical Models
• Description of performed research methodology and experiment
• Experiment findings and future directions

Areas of research include, but are not limited to:

• Databases
• Information Retrieval
• Human Computer Interaction
• Multimedia and Multimodal
• Knowledge Management
• Bio, Chemo, Med, Eco, etc. Informatics

All papers will be peer reviewed by at least one senior researchers on 
the Programme Committee. Papers should be up to 6 pages. All submissions 
should be in eWics Format using the Word or Latex templates. Note 
submissions should be converted to PDF.

All submissions should be from a solo author: the idea is to encourage 
and promote one's own research.

Call for Posters

We would also like to invite shorter submissions which provide a summary 
of your current research to present as a poster during the symposium. 
This is an excellent opportunity to discuss your research with your 
peers and senior IR researchers and practitioners during FDIA / ESSIR.

All poster papers will be reviewed. Poster papers should be 1-2 pages in 
length in eWics Format using the Word or Latex templates. Submissions 
should be converted to PDF.

The Proceedings will be printed online as part of the Ewics series.

All submissions should be uploaded via the EasyChair site.

Important Dates:

13th of May: Paper/Poster Deadline

18th of June: Paper Notification

10th of July: Camera Ready Papers Due

3rd of September: FDIA as part of ESSIR 2013

ESSIR 2013: 9TH EUROPEAN SUMMER SCHOOL IN INFORMATION RETRIEVAL

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

SEPTEMBER 2nd - 6th, 2013

The European Summer School in Information Retrieval (ESSIR) is a 
scientific event founded in 1990, which has given rise to a series of 
Summer Schools held on a regular basis to provide high quality teaching 
of Information Retrieval (IR) and advanced IR topics to an audience of 
researchers and research students. ESSIR is typically a week-long event 
consisting of guest lectures and seminars from invited lecturers who are 
recognized experts in the field.

The 9th European Summer School in Information Retrieval (ESSIR 2013) 
will be held in Granada, Spain, hosted by the Department of Computer 
Science and Artificial Intelligence at the University of Granada.

ESSIR 2013 is configured as a 5 day event, from the 2nd till the 6th of 
September, 2013, which offers high quality teaching on IR and related 
research topics, in a friendly atmosphere. Some of the topics covered in 
the school are the following:

- IR Foundations and Formal Models,

- IR Diversity,

- Recommender Systems,

- Semantic Search,

- Indexing and MapReduce,

- Data Mining and IR,]

- ...

All this will have as background the incomparable setting of the 
beautiful and magical city of GRANADA, one of the top visitor 
destinations in Spain.

A number of bursaries will be available for students. More information 
will be available at the School website in the coming weeks.
