OAIR 2013  / RIAO 2013 - Lisbon, Portugal, May 22-24, 2013


Welcome to OAIR 2013, the 10th International Conference in the RIAO series.

The World Wide Web is the largest source of openly accessible data, and the
most common means to connect people and share resources.

How can we link these data, people and resources? What structure can we use
to search in this data? How can search in multimedia web data? How can we
model the web user and use this to improve search? How can one user’s
preferences be used to recommend something to another user? How can personal
data be preserved in an open web? How do social connections affect search?

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

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

OAIR 2013 conference is an opportunity to  share knowledge among IR
scientific community and to get updates on new scientific work developed by
IR community.

We look forward to seeing you in the Europe´s Westernmost and sunniest
capital, LISBON!
