Call For Papers

The Eighth Asia Information Retrieval Societies Conference (AIRS2012)
17-19 December 2012, Tianjin, P. R. China

== Call for Papers ==

The Asia Information Retrieval Societies Conference (AIRS) aims to
bring together researchers and developers to exchange new ideas and
latest developments in the field of information retrieval (IR). More detailed
information about past AIRS conferences can be found at AIRS Steering
Committee page ( The
scope of the conference covers applications, systems, technologies and
theoretical aspects of information retrieval in text, audio, image, video,
and multimedia data. The AIRS 2012 welcomes submissions of original
papers in the broad field of information retrieval. We particularly
welcome papers on IR for Asian languages.

-- Topics --

Technical issues covered include, but are not limited to the following:

1. IR Models and Theories (Classical and non-Classical Aspects)
2. User Study, IR Evaluation, and Interactive IR
3. Web IR, Scalability IR, and IR in Social Media
4. Multimedia IR
5. NLP for IR (e.g., Cross-/Multi- Language IR, Question Answering,
Summarization, Information Extraction)
6. Machine Learning and Data Mining for IR (e.g., Learning to Rank,
Classification, Clustering)
7. IR Applications (e.g., Cross Language IR, Asian Language IR,
Digital Libraries, Vertical Search, Mobile IR and etc.)

-- Submission --

The AIRS 2012 proceedings will be published as an LNCS volume,
which will be EI-indexed. To submit a paper,
please follow the default author instructions available at . In
addition, please anonymize your paper to facilitate blind reviewing,
