Call for Papers


            International Workshop on


Context-Based Information Retrieval (CIR-05)


Held in conjunction with the 5th International and=20

Interdisciplinary Conference on Modeling and Using Context



July 5, 2005 =96 Paris, France (one day)


With the explosion of the volume of available information on the Web,=20

the information retrieval systems (IRSs) have become necessary to help=20

the users to find relevant documents. Traditional IRSs may be =

different if they may take into account the context of the information=20

and the context of the query. Contextual information includes both =

and implicit knowledge about intentions of the user, environment the =

is attached to and the system itself. Such factors constrain the search=20

without intervening in it explicitly. One idea to improve the efficiency =

is to make explicit the contextual information in order to enhance the



The workshop audience is intended to explore related work, theoretical

and applications which focus on contextual IRSs. It is intended for

in the area of computer science, information retrieval, and digital

The workshop's aim is to promote exchanges in these fields, to establish =

current state of the art, to identify the emerging problems and to =

future research directions. Besides, we encourage interested researchers

related areas to attend the workshop.=20
