2nd International Workshop on Advances in Semantic Information Retrieval (ASIR’2012)
Wrocław, Poland, September 9-12, 2012
Recent advances in semantic technologies form a solid basis for a variety of methods and instruments that support information retrieval, knowledge representation, and text analysis. They influence the way and form of representing documents in the memory of computers, approaches to analyze documents, techniques to mine and retrieve knowledge. The abundance of video, voice and speech data also raises new challenging problems to information retrieval systems.
We believe that our workshop will facilitate discussion of new research results in this area, and will serve as a meeting place for researchers from all over the world. Our aim is to create an atmosphere of friendship and cooperation for everyone, interested in computational linguistics and information retrieval. The second ASIR workshop will continue to maintain high standards of quality and organization, set in the previous year. We welcome all the researchers, interested in semantics and information retrieval, to join our event.
The workshop addresses semantic information retrieval theory and important matters, related to practical Web tools. The topics and areas include, but not limited to:
- Models for document representation.
- Ontology for semantic information retrieval.
- Ontology alignment, mapping and merging.
- Searching and ranking.
- Semantic multimedia retrieval.
- Natural language semantic processing.
- Evaluation methodologies for semantic search and retrieval.
- Query interfaces.
- Visualization of retrieved results.
- Domain-specific semantic applications.
