You are invited to participate in the SICSA MMI Information Retrieval Workshop: a full day of information retrieval (IR) related activities for the SICSA community. IR is one of the areas of interest for the SICSA MMI theme and this workshop presents an opportunity for members of the vibrant IR community in Scotland to meet, present and discuss their research. The workshop will be held as a one-day event on May 31 2013 at Glasgow Caledonian University. The agenda consists of some interactive sessions and some great speakers who will give a flavour of the excellent IR research that is being conducted in SICSA institutions. The speakers include (with more to be confirmed soon):
Prof. Joemon Jose – http://www.dcs.gla.ac.uk/~jj/
Dr Craig MacDonald – http://www.dcs.gla.ac.uk/~craigm/
Dr. Miles Osbourne – http://homepages.inf.ed.ac.uk/miles/
Dr Tiphaine Dalmas – http://www.inf.ed.ac.uk/people/staff/Tiphaine_Dalmas.html
We also plan to hold a madness session where students, postdocs and staff will have two minutes to present their research with rapid fire slides. There will also be a showcase session after lunch which will allow anybody to bring a recent poster or demo to showcase. These sessions present a great way to get feedback on your latest work.
It is intended that this meeting will be a lively and informal gathering, and a great way for you to showcase your work to leading IR researchers. It is hoped that by bringing together IR researchers that the workshop will inspire future research and collaboration amongst members. This is your community and we strongly urge you to fully participate to get the most out of the day.
