***************************************************************** -- RIAO'2004 -- Call For Papers and Applications ***************************************************************** Coupling Approaches, Coupling Media and Coupling Languages for Information Retrieval University of Avignon (Vaucluse), France April 26th-28th, 2004 Organized by: CENTRE DE HAUTES ETUDES INTERNATIONALES D'INFORMATIQUE DOCUMENTAIRE (C.I.D., France) in cooperation with the LIA (Laboratoire d'Informatique d'Avignon - Universit=E9 d'Avignon) and with technical support of IRIT (Institut de Recherche en = Informatique de Toulouse) CALL FOR PAPERS --------------- Current content-based information management involves many different disciplines. Information must be retrieved from video, from sound, and from images and graphs. Question answering involves both syntax and semantics. Information classification and filtering involve machine learning and linguistics. In addition, as information technology spreads throughout the world, a wider variety of languages in increasingly complex combinations must be handled. In response to these evolving needs, RIAO'2004 calls for papers covering the coupling of techniques from different domains to improve information retrieval. RIAO'2004 will present innovative research and developments from all areas of multi-media and multi-language information retrieval. Submissions, demonstrating combination of techniques from disparate domains, may treat retrieval from either a single medium, or across media (indexing one medium for find information in another), or from coupling unstructured and structured information (e.g. exploiting both text and XML structure), or from across languages. Conference Themes: Paper submissions should cover one or more of the following themes: Multimedia information: - Media-specific indexing techniques (text, speech, fixed and animated images, music) - Indexing composite documents - Querying multimedia documents - Automatically generating text from images and from video - Indexing interactive documents Multilingual Information: - Cross-lingual information retrieval, especially involving rarer languages - Automatic construction of bilingual lexicons and term banks - Production of multilingual documents Man Machine Combinations: - Coupling search and browsing - Coupling search and semantic mapping (ontologies, SOM, etc) - Multimodal interfaces - Coupling access through structure and through content - Automatic presentation of search aids (e.g. key words, phrases) - Neuroscience applied to information recognition Architecture for Combined Approaches: - Architecture for coupling techniques (e.g. Machine Learning for Content Management) - Architecture for coupling media - Architecture for treating multilingual information Specific Systems Combining Diverse Approaches: - Systems for Collaborative Information Retrieval - Question answering systems - Multidocument or multilingual summarization - Automatic translation, translation memory Combining Linguistic and Statistics for Retrieving Content: - Improved linguistic analyzers in information retrieval - Exploiting linguistic knowledge in search and retrieval - Knowledge Extraction for Information Retrieval - Semantics in indexation and retrieval Composite Documents and Content: - Exploiting document structure - Semantic Web and Ontologies for Full-Scale Information Retrieval - Exploiting new multimedia norms for content-based information management Evaluation of Combined Approaches: - User oriented retrieval metrics - New retrieval metrics - Question-Answering systems evaluation metrics Application domains combining techniques: (descriptions of systems involving the following domains): - Cultural heritage - Indexation and retrieval of medical images - Applications concerning security - Protection of intellectual property - Protection of minors - E-learning - Technology Watch Important dates: First call for papers: October 1, 2003 Deadline for paper submission: December 15, 2003 Notification of acceptance of papers: January 31, 2004 Camera-ready copies due: March 8, 2004 Conference dates: April 26-28, 2004 Submissions should be about 6000 words (about 20 pages, double spaced), include and abstract and be submitted in PDF or PS format. Submissions for communications will be made electronically on its web site : http://www.riao.org. The working language of the conference is English. However, in agreement with the French regulations of the "Loi Toubon", submission of papers in French and presentation of papers, if selected, in French will be accepted. CALL FOR APPLICATIONS --------------------- Innovative applications and products related to the conference topics are sought for demonstrations during the three days of the Conference. They will be selected by the international Application committee, on the basis of their innovation and future or present marketability. Selected applications will be given free demonstrations spaces. Application submissions should cover one or more of the following topics: - Multimedia indexing and retrieval systems (text, sound, speech, images, video) - Cross-lingual indexing and retrieval systems - Peer-to-peer text search engines - Cooperative Information Retrieval (grids) - Automatic XML structuring of documents - Automatic metadata generation for text, sound, and images, automatic annotators - Automated ontology construction and annotators - Topic detection and event detection in streaming documents, technology watch, strategy watch - Intelligent message filtering - Intelligent text agents - Parent control and anti-spam control by content filtering - E-learning - response interpretation - Document summarisation -- mono or multilingal, mono or multidocument, profile driven - Topic maps - Domain-specific application of information retrieval and multimedia retrieval: medicine, e-commerce, computer-assisted teaching, video production, etc Important dates: First call for applications: October 1, 2003 Deadline for application submission: January 31, 2004 Notification for acceptance of applications: March 15, 2004 Conference dates: April 26-28, 2004 Program Committee ----------------- Co-Chairs Christian Fluhr, CEA, France Bruce Croft, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, USA Gregory Grefenstette, Clairvoyance Corp., Pittsburg, Etats Unis Catherine Berrut, IMAG, France Francine Chen, PARC, USA Claude Chrisment, IRIT, Toulouse, France Franciska de Jong, Univ.
