Call for Papers

3rd Conference on on Theory of Information Retrieval (ICTIR’11)

Bertinoro, Italy
September 12-14, 2011

The International Conference on the Theory of Information Retrieval (ICTIR) aims to provide a forum for discussion and interaction among those with theoretical and applicative research interests in mathematical/formal aspects of Information Retrieval (IR), including, e.g., foundational issues, description or integration of models, retrieval applications, mathematical/formal techniques, existing and/or new theories and theoretical aspects.

The third ICTIR conference aims to continue in the same spirit, promoting research in the wider contexts of IR. Reflecting this, in addition to the established fields and approaches in IR, research papers on new approaches inspired from sociology, mathematics, physics, linguistics, biology, philosophy, and other areas are sought. Papers that demonstrate a high level of research adventure or which break out of the traditional IR paradigms are particularly welcome. Experimental and/or practical results from new paradigms are also of interest.
