10th International Workshop on

Information Filtering and Retrieval 

AI*IA 2016 Workshop

15th International Conference of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence 

Genova, November 28 - December 1, 2016


Technological evolution in electronic and computer science has led to the advent of the so called information age. Information is continuously created and stored at an impressive pace. Nowadays, data is readily available in large quantities and on an enormous variety of subjects. It becomes more important to have automatic methods to manage and indexing data, in order to search and retrieve only useful information. Advanced information retrieval methods, tools, and infrastructures require expertise in different research areas, including machine learning, data mining, computer linguistics, artificial intelligence, user interaction and modeling, Web engineering, or distributed systems. 

DART 2016 intends to provide a more interactive and focused platform for researchers and practitioners for presenting and discussing new and emerging ideas. It is focused on researching and studying new challenges in intelligent information filtering and retrieval. In particular, DART aims to investigate novel systems and tools to web scenarios and semantic computing. In so doing, DART will contribute to discuss and compare suitable novel solutions based on intelligent techniques and applied in real-world applications.

Information Retrieval attempts to address similar filtering and ranking problems for pieces of information such as links, pages, and documents. Information Retrieval systems generally focus on the development of global retrieval techniques, often neglecting individual user needs and preferences.

Information Filtering has drastically changed the way information seekers find what they are searching for. In fact, they effectively prune large information spaces and help users in selecting items that best meet their needs, interests, preferences, and tastes. These systems rely strongly on the use of various machine learning tools and algorithms for learning how to rank items and predict user evaluation.



Authors should submit an original paper in English, carefully checked for correct grammar and spelling, using the on-line submission procedure. 

The submission must have up to 12 pages, otherwise it will be rejected without review, in the Springer LNCS style (please see  for details).

Paper submission is electronic via easychair at the address: 



Submissions will have a peer review by the Program Committee on the basis of technical quality, relevance to the workshop topics, originality, significance, and clarity.



Papers classified as Full Papers are awarded a 30’ minutes slot for an oral presentation at the conference. Papers classified as Short Papers are given either a 20’ minutes slot for an oral presentation or assigned to present at a Poster Session. Authors who have been assigned an oral presentation, either Full or Short, may however also choose to present at a Poster Session instead, should they prefer it.



Papers classified as Full Papers will be assigned a 12-page limit in the Conference Proceedings, while Papers classified as Short Papers have an 8-page limit. The total number of pages to consider is the number obtained after the paper has been correctly formatted according to the appropriate template. The Workshop Proceedings will be published online on CEUR Workshop Proceedings (

The corresponding-authors will be notified at all time, for the submission, notification, and confirmation on the attendance.

Submitting a paper to the workshop means that, if the paper is accepted, at least one author should attend the conference to present the paper and should then register to the conference with a workshop fee. 

The proceedings will be submitted to Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP, EI (Elsevier Index) and Scopus for indexation.



Topics of interest will include (but not are limited to):

- Web Information Filtering and Retrieval

- Web Personalization and Recommendation

- Web Advertising

- Web Agents

- Web of Data
