Subject: Date: Sun, 22 Mar 2009 16:02:13 +0100 Using Search Engine Technology for Information Management (USETIM 2009) categories: enterprise search, relational databases, search, information management When: Aug 24, 2009 - Aug 24, 2009 Where: Lyon, France Submission Deadline: May 10, 2009 Notification Due: May 29, 2009 Final Version Due: Jun 20, 2009 link: http://www.wikicfp.com/cfp/servlet/event.showcfp?eventid=5101 link: http://www.vldb2009.org/ Call For Papers For information management, databases offer precise, controlled access to data. But, they do not offer the easy-to-use search capabilities that most knowledge workers manipulate daily on sites such as Google. Access to information contained in databases is more difficult, and more restricted. One solution to this information bottleneck is to let search engines support the brunt of the work, by offloading information from the database into alternative infrastructures, such as that provided by search engine technology. Many business applications such as search, report generation and data analysis might be performed more efficiently on the replicated data without involving the native database technology, e.g. transactions. These offloaded databases, retaining some of their structure, can be recombined, mashed up, creating one-off, possibly disposable, databases, while the primary data is safe in the original database. This workshop will examine the limits and potentialities of use information retrieval and search engine technology for information management (IM) applications. Topics to be explored: - search engine as a database - business intelligence applications without OLAP - optimization of relational database search - affordances of search engine technology for database offloading - mashups for user applications - content aggregation systems - limits of database offloading - database connectors - access-optimized databases - disposable databases - optimizing access, flexibility, and scalability So perhaps giving some suggestion/examples in the abstract as to how the communities are already moving together (e.g. storage and retrieval of documents in databases, information extraction for semantic search, etc), in particular with a focus on how IR technologies and paradigms are already being exploited by the IM community, followed by a few suggested topic areas.
