                                FDIA 2013

                           CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

                               Granada, SPAIN

                         (essir2013 (AT)


The European Summer School in Information Retrieval (ESSIR) is a 
scientific event founded in 1990, which has given rise to a series of
Summer Schools held on a regular basis to provide high quality teaching
of Information Retrieval (IR) and advanced IR topics to an audience of
researchers and research students. ESSIR is typically a week-long event 
consisting of guest lectures and seminars from invited lecturers who are 
recognized experts in the field.

The 9th European Summer School in Information Retrieval (ESSIR 2013)
will be held in Granada, Spain, hosted by the Department of Computer
Science and Artificial Intelligence at the University of Granada.

ESSIR 2013 is configured as a 5 days event, from the 2nd till the 6th
of September, 2013, which offers high quality teaching on IR and
related research topics, in a friendly atmosphere. Some of the topics
covered in the school are the following:

- IR Foundations and Formal Models,

- IR Diversity,

- Recommender Systems,

- Semantic Search,

- Indexing and MapReduce,

- Data Mining and IR,
- ...

In few days, the teaching staff will be closed as well as the topics of
their lectures.

A number of bursaries will be available for students. More information
will be available at the School website in the coming weeks.

A new edition of the Symposium on Future Directions in Information
Access (FDIA), will be held at ESSIR 2013, which will provide a forum 
for early researchers to present their research in a friendly
environment, whilst among senior researchers. The symposium aims to
provide a forum for participants of the summer school to share their
research and interact  with senior researchers in an informal and
relaxed atmosphere. Why future directions, because we want to encourage 
submissions that focus on the early research such as pilot studies,
presenting challenges and future opportunities, conceptual and
theoretical work, and the contributions from doctoral work.

Why Information Access, because it captures the broader ideas of
information retrieval, storage and management to include interaction and
usage. The FDIA call for papers will be distributed in early 2013.

All this will have as background the incomparable setting of the
beautiful and magical city of GRANADA, one of the top visitor
destinations in Spain.
