OAIR 2013 - Open research Areas in Information Retrieval -
Searching the Web of People and Data

(the 10th International Conference in the RIAO series)



22 to 24 of May 2013

Lisbon - Portugal

Venue: ISEL

The World Wide Web is the largest source of openly accessible
data, and the most common means to connect people and share
resources. However, exploiting these interconnected Webs to
obtain information is still an unsolved problem.

This conference calls for papers describing recent research in
Information Retrieval concerning the integration between a Web of
Data and a Web of People, to transform pure data into
information, and information into usable knowledge.

Submissions are invited to present recent, original and
unpublished research addressing the OAIR 2013 theme: Searching
the Web of People and Data.

Submissions may address one or more of the following subjects,
but are not limited to:

· Adapting search to Users

· Advertising and ad targeting

· Aggregation of Results

· Community and Context Aware Search

· Community-based Filtering and Recommender Systems

· Community-based IR Theory

· Community-oriented Content Representation

· Evaluation of Social IR

· Improving Web via Social Media

· Including Crowdsourcing in Search

· Merging Heterogeneous Web Data

· Modeling the web of people

· Personal semantics search

· Query log analysis

· Personal semantics search

· Search over Social Networks

· Sentiment analysis

· Social Multimedia and Multimodal IR

· Social Topic detection

· Structuring Unstructured Data

· System Architectures for Social IR

· User Interfaces and Interactive IR

We welcome submissions from both research and industrial
communities addressing the main conference theme.

RIAO conferences have been held since 1985

The Open research Areas in Information Retrieval (OAIR)
conference is a triennial conference, addressing research topics
related to the design of robust and large-scale scientific and
industrial solutions to information processing.

Previous OAIR editions organized by the C.I.D. (under the name
RIAO, this is the 10th RIAO conference) were held at Grenoble
(1985), MIT (1988), Barcelona (1991), Rockefeller University
(1994), Montreal (1997), Paris (2000), Avignon (2004), Carnegie
Mellon University (2007) and Paris VI University - Paris (2010).

OAIR conferences provide peer-reviewed scientific sessions and
peer-reviewed demonstrations of innovative industrial
applications and advanced research prototypes.

OAIR Conferences are distinguished by the conjunction of both
high-level, selected scientific research resulting from a global
call-for-papers with the presentation of selected, innovative
prototypes. Recently appearing innovative products are also
showcased at the Conferences. Both the scientific paper and
product selections are made by committees of International
experts. Products are chosen uniquely on the basis of their
