SIGIR 2012 Workshop on Time-aware Information Access
Portland, OR, August 16, 2012
Web content increasingly reﬂects the current state of the physical and social world, manifested both in traditional news media sources along with user-generated publishing sites such as Twitter, Foursquare, and Facebook. At the same time, web searching increasingly reﬂects problems grounded in the real world.
As a result of this blending of the web with the real world, we observe that the web, both in its composition and use, has incorporated many of the dynamics of the real world. Many of the problems associated with searching dynamic collections are not well understood, such as deﬁning time-sensitive relevance, understanding user query behavior over time and understanding why certain web content changes.
We aim to bring together practitioners and researchers to discuss their recent breakthroughs and the challenges with addressing time-aware search, both from the algorithmic and the architectural perspectives.
The workshop will comprise of invited talks, oral and poster presentations and open-forum discussions.
