The paper submission deadline for the IRF Conference 2011 has been extended to:
Sunday, 23 January 2011

Papers for which abstracts have not yet been submitted are also welcome.

IRF Conference 2011:

You can find the original CFP below.

Furthermore, the calls for the Machine Translation Session and
Patolympics at the IRF Symposium 2011 (7-9 June 2011) are still open:

CfP IRF Conference 2011 (6 June, Vienna, Austria)

After a successful start in 2010 the 2nd Information Retrieval
Facility Conference 2011 provides once again a multidisciplinary
scientific forum for researchers in Information Retrieval and related
areas. Furthermore, the conference aims at bringing young researchers
into contact with the industry at an early stage. Another emphasis is
put on the applicability of IR solutions to real industry cases and
the respective challenges. A panel of experts from both academia and
industry will discuss the relevance of the presented papers for
current challenges faced by information professionals at the end of
the conference.

2nd IRF Conference - The IRF Scientific Forum - 6 June 2011, Vienna, Austria
Call for Papers

The 2nd IRF Conference addresses 4 complementary research areas:

  * Information Retrieval
  * Semantic Web technologies for IR
  * Natural Language Processing for IR
  * Large-scale or distributed computing for the above areas

The 2nd IRF Conference targets researchers who are interested in:

  * Discussing results obtained by using the IRF computing
infrastructure and data resources
  * Learning about complementary technologies
  * Applying their results to real business needs
  * Joining the international research network of the IRF

All papers will undergo a review process with each paper being
reviewed by at least three members of the programme committee. The
proceedings in 2010 have been published by Springer in the LNCS
series, and we have contacted Springer regarding 2011. The 2nd IRF
Conference is collocated with the 4th Information Retrieval Facility
Symposium (June 7-9, 2011, Vienna, Austria) where leading experts from
the intellectual property and information retrieval domains will
exchange ideas and debate about retrieval challenges in the
intellectual property area.

The 4th IRF Symposium will demonstrate examples of retrieval
techniques developed to better solve the information professionals'
needs in 3 specific fields: Image Retrieval, Machine Translation and
Interfacing. Additionally, the Symposium will give participants the
opportunity to discover and test prototypical versions of the most
innovative technologies in the market.

The best papers of the IRF Conference will be invited to present a
poster and/or a demo at the IRF Symposium.
The attendees of the IRF Conference 2011 are also invited to
participate in the PatOlympics, a half-day event that provides an
interactive evaluation platform where prototypes of state-of-the-art
patent retrieval systems will be tested and driven to their limits by
patent retrieval professionals. The 2011 edition will cover two
PatSports: ChemAtlon and Cross-Language Retrieving.
