CFP: ECIR Workshop on Context-aware Retrieval and Recommendation

5th Workshop on Context-awareness in Retrieval and Recommendation (CaRR
2015) in conjunction with the 37th European Conference on Information
Retrieval (ECIR 2015).
Location: Vienna, Austria
Date: March 29, 2015
Website: http://carr-workshop.org
General Information

Following the successful 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 Workshops on
Context-awareness in Retrieval and Recommendation we are delighted to
invite you to the fifth installment which will be held in conjunction with
the 37th European Conference on Information Retrieval (ECIR 2015).
The context of a piece of information is now often available, with many
systems capturing things like people’s interaction patterns with
information, the devices people use, the annotations they make, and their
user profiles. Context-aware retrieval systems use context to enhance their
performance. The challenge in doing so lies not only in using context to
retrieve the most relevant content, but also in understanding and
identifying important context ad hoc. Further, once information is
retrieved, it must be presented to the user in a context-aware manner,
personalizing and adapting the content to the user’s current situation
(device, location, social surrounding) and interests.
Call for Papers

In the scope of this workshop, context can refer to any factor surrounding
the user, information object, or system, including, for example, the
location of the information interaction, the weather at the time of the
interaction, or the user’s mood. The need for personalizing and adapting
the information exchange experience is accentuated when we consider device-
and interaction-based context. The aim of the CaRR Workshop is to invite
the community to a discussion in which we will try to find new creative
ways to support context-awareness. Furthermore, CaRR aims at improving the
exchange of ideas between different communities involved in research
concerning, among other topics, web mining, machine learning, information
retrieval, data mining, and hci. The workshop is especially intended for
researchers working on multidisciplinary projects who want to discuss
problems and synergies.

The aim of the CaRR Workshop is to invite the community to a discussion in
which we will try to find new creative ways to handle context-awareness.
Furthermore, CaRR aims at improving the exchange of ideas between different
communities involved in research concerning, among other web mining,
machine learning, information retrieval, data mining, hci, etc. The
workshop is especially intended for researchers working on
multidisciplinary tasks who want to discuss problems and synergies.

The participants are encouraged to address the following questions:

    Which benefits come from context-aware systems?
    How can we best capture context for its use in IR and information
filtering?
    In what ways can context improve the search/retrieval experience?
    How can we combine general- and user-centric context-aware technologies?
    How should context affect the way information is presented?

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following
aspects:

    Context-aware data mining and information retrieval
    Context-aware profiling, clustering and collaborative filtering
    Use of context-aware technologies in IR
    Context-aware recommendations for mobile users
    Context-awareness in portable devices
    Mobile and social search

Paper submissions and reviews will be handled electronically through the
CaRR page in EasyChair at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=carr2015
Important Dates

    Paper submission: February 2, 2015
    Notification: February 20, 2015
    Camera-ready submission: February 27, 2015
    Workshop: March 29, 2015
