2018INTRODUCTIONRecent advances in commercial conversational services that
allow naturally spoken and typed interaction, particularly for
well-formulated questions and commands, have increased the need for more
human-centric interactions in information retrieval.  The Second
International Workshop on Conversational Approaches to Information
Retrieval (CAIR'18) will again bring together academic and industrial
researchers to create a forum for research on conversational approaches to
search. A specific focus will be on techniques that support complex and
multi-turn user-machine dialogues for information access and retrieval, and
multi-model interfaces for interacting with such systems. We invite
submissions addressing all modalities of conversation, including
speech-based, text-based, and multimodal interaction. We also welcome
studies of human-human interaction (e.g., collaborative search) that can
inform the design of conversational search applications, and work on
evaluation of conversational approaches.SCOPEThe workshop welcomes a broad
range of studies that can contribute to the development of conversational
approaches to IR. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):Query
understanding and search process management - Processing verbose natural
language queries- Processing noisy ASR queries- Query intent
disambiguation, clarification, confirmation- Query suggestion- Relevance
feedback in conversational search- Voice-based search engine operations-
Dialogue schema for conversational searchSearch result description
(presentation) - Audio-based search result presentation and summarization-
Conversational navigation of search results- Knowledge graph presentation
in conversational search- Advertisements in audio-based search result
presentationRanking algorithms - Ad-hoc spoken search- Spoken search in
sessionEvaluation - Building test collections for conversational search-
Development of new metrics to measure effectiveness, engagement,
satisfaction of conversational searchApplications - Intelligent personal
assistance- Intelligent home assistance using voice / speech oriented
devices- Proactive search/Recommendation- Collaborative search- Hands free
search (e.g., in car, kitchen)- Search for visually impaired users- Search
for low literacy users- Integration with existing technologiesHOW TO SUBMIT
