         CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

=20

            International Workshop on

=20

Context-Based Information Retrieval (CIR-05)

=20

Held in conjunction with the 5th International and=20

Interdisciplinary Conference on Modeling and Using Context

(CONTEXT-05)

=20

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

=20

Theme:

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 =
drastically=20

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

and the context of the query. Contextual information includes both =
explicit=20

and implicit knowledge about intentions of the user, environment the =
user=20

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

without intervening in it explicitly. One idea to improve the efficiency =
of
IRSs=20

is to make explicit the contextual information in order to enhance the
retrieval=20

performance.=20

=20

The workshop audience is intended to explore related work, theoretical
framework=20

and applications which focus on contextual IRSs. It is intended for
researchers=20

in the area of computer science, information retrieval, and digital
libraries.=20

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

current state of the art, to identify the emerging problems and to =
propose=20

future research directions. Besides, we encourage interested researchers
from=20

related areas to attend the workshop.=20

=20

Relevant topics include but are not limited to: =20

* Contextual information retrieval modeling

* Contextual information retrieval metrics and assessments

* Use of contextual graph to model information retrieval systems

* Theory in context and information retrieval=20

* Multiple contexts in information retrieval

* Adaptive and interactive information retrieval

* Multi-context based browsing

* Use of ontology and thesaurus to contextualize the querying and =
indexing

* Querying contextual information retrieval systems

* Experiments with test collection of contextual information retrieval
systems

* Tools to support contextual information retrieval
