ICTIR is the premier conference of theoretical information retrieval (IR), covering a broad spectrum of diverse research areas that are concerned with mathematical/formal aspects of IR, including foundational issues, description or integration of models, retrieval applications, mathematical/formal techniques, existing and/or new theories and theoretical aspects. There are exciting new developments in ICTIR13: the conference program includes four tutorials open to all participants, a lively panel discussion on the challenges and long range opportunities for IR research and three exciting keynotes from Keith van Rijsbergen, Ricardo Baeza-Yates and Dominic Widdows.
Enterprise Search Europe offers a European perspective on the technology, selection, implementation and optimisation of enterprise-scale search applications.
The two day conference brings together practitioners and search experts to share experiences and exchange perspectives on current and future projects and applications. At Enterprise Search Europe, delegates will learn strategies, explore solutions and build the skill sets to make their organisationís content easily searchable and delivered in an actionable format.
