Third International Workshop on Web Information Retrieval Support Systems
(WIRSS 2010)

August 31, 2010
Toronto, Canada

Held in collaboration with the 2010 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on
Web Intelligence (WI 2010), August 31 - September 3, 2010 in Toronto,

WIRSS 2010:
WI 2010:


The focus of the Third International Workshop on Web Information Retrieval
Support Systems is on the aspects of Web information retrieval that consider
the specific needs of individuals conducting Web searches. Web Information
Retrieval Support Systems (WIRSS) move beyond the traditional focus of
 automated searching within digital collections, applying intelligent
methods and Web-based technologies to assist users in specifying their
information needs, evaluating and exploring search results, and managing the
information they find.

Fundamentally, WIRSS research supports a change in design philosophy, moving
the focus of Web search from the documents being searched to the tasks that
people need to perform. We believe this philosophical shift will mark the
move towards next-generation Web search systems, and a transition from
information retrieval to knowledge retrieval.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together academic and industry
researchers to discuss advances in providing intelligent support for the
user-centric tasks associated with Web search. Researchers from diverse
fields such as information retrieval, artificial intelligence,
human-computer interaction, information visualization, Web systems, natural
language processing, and agent systems are invited to contribute to this


- interactive query refinement
- search results representations and visualization
- search results exploration
- re-finding information
- search results storage and organization
- document summarization
- personalization
- multi-level and multi-view representations
- Web search user behaviour
- user studies of WIRSS
- knowledge management systems
- human-centred search


The WIRSS 2010 Workshop is being offered as a full-day workshop at the 2010
IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence (WI 2010), August
31 - September 3, 2010 in Toronto, Canada. A single registration entitles
delegates to attend the workshops and the full conference.


All papers for the WIRSS 2010 Workshop are to be submitted through the
WI/IAT 2010 Workshop Paper Submission system. The length of accepted papers
should not exceed 4 pages in the IEEE-CS format. Extra payment is only
available for one additional page. The details for the submission procedures
and the style files for preparing your paper are provided on the Workshop
Web site (

All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least two members of the Program
Committee on the basis of:

- technical quality
- relevance to Web Information Retrieval Support Systems
- originality and significance of the research
- clarity of the writing


April 16, 2010:  Due date for workshop paper submission
June 7, 2010:    Notification of paper acceptance
