You are invited to submit contributions to the Dutch-Belgian Information Retrieval workshop (DIR 2011). The primary aim of DIR is to provide an international meeting place where researchers from the domain of information retrieval and related disciplines can exchange information and present innovative research developments. DIR 2011 will put special emphasis on interaction - by focusing on poster presentations and creating space and time to meet and discuss new ideas.

DIR 2011 welcomes contributions related to any aspect of IR, including, but not limited to:

* Forensic Search
* Privacy aspects of IR
* Retrieval models, language models
* Natural language processing for IR, text summarization
* Information extraction, question answering
* Machine Learning for IR
* Query processing, thesaurus construction, user models
* Multimedia IR, video retrieval, audio and music retrieval, cross-media retrieval
* Multilingual and cross-lingual retrieval
* Structured document retrieval, XML-IR
* Image processing for IR, audio processing for IR
* Processing and search of e-mail, spam, blogs
* Categorization, topic tracking and event detection
* Web IR, distributed IR, enterprise search, search of digital libraries, intranet search, desktop search
* Collaborative filtering, recommender systems
* Efficiency and performance
* IR evaluation

Submission details:

Papers may range from theoretical work to system descriptions. We especially encourage Ph.D. students to submit their research. We also welcome contributions from the industry when they focus on novel research directions. Submissions will be reviewed by at least two domain experts. The conference language is English.

Two types of submissions are accepted. Research paper submissions should describe original research, with a maximum length of 4 pages. Accepted papers are presented at the conference, either in a talk or in a poster presentation (the presentation mode will be decided based on authors' preferences and reviewer suggestions). Compressed paper submissions consist of a summary of previously published work, with a maximum length of two pages. Compressed papers will be presented at the conference as a poster.
