	+++ The Dutch-Belgian Information Retrieval Workshop (DIR) +++

DIR 2013 ( aims to serve as a platform for 
exchange and discussion on information retrieval research and 
application in the Netherlands and Belgium, as well as internationally. 
The 13th edition of the successful workshop series will be held in 
Delft, The Netherlands. We invite high-quality research contributions 
addressing relevant challenges in the domains of information retrieval, 
natural language processing and data mining. Contributions range from 
theoretical work to descriptions of applied research and systems. We 
especially encourage doctoral students to present their ongoing 
research. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

     Adversarial IR
     Collaborative filtering and recommender systems
     Cross-lingual retrieval
     Email & desktop search
     Information extraction
     Interactive IR
     IR evaluation
     Machine Learning for IR
     Mobile IR
     Multimedia IR, video retrieval, music & speech retrieval, 
cross-media retrieval
     Natural language processing for IR
     Privacy aspects of IR
     Query log analisys
     Question answering
     Retrieval models
     Scalability and retrieval efficiency

     Text classification and clustering
     Text summarization
     User interfaces & interaction
     User models & Search personalisation
     Web Retrieval

We accept three types of submissions: (1) Research papers should 
describe original research, with a maximum length of 4 pages. (2) 
Compressed papers consist of a summary of previously published work, 
with a maximum length of 2 pages. Accepted papers are presented at the 
conference, in the form of oral or poster presentations (the concrete 
presentation mode will be decided based on the authors' preferences and 
reviewer suggestions). (3) Demonstrations showcase applied research and 
industrial products. Each demo is described by at most 2 pages and will 
be presented in a dedicated session during the workshop. Presenters of 
accepted demos will be provided with tables, power sockets and an 
Internet connection.

This year, we will be able to nominate the best original research paper 
and best demonstrator and award them with an attractive prize.
