Introduction

The RIAO (Recherche d'Informations Assistee par Ordinateur =
Computer-Assisted Information Retrieval) 
International Conference is held every 3 years. Sites for the conference
have been Grenoble (1985), Boston 
(1988), Barcelona (1991), New York (1994) and Montreal (1997). Paris will
host the next RIAO conference in 
Spring 2000. The conference is organized by the Centre de Hautes Etudes
Internationales d'Informatique 
Documentaire (C.I.D.) and the Center for the Advanced Study of Information
Systems (C.A.S.I.S.).

The theme of the conference is "Content-Based Multimedia Information
Access". The conference scope will 
range from the traditional processing of text documents to the rapidly
growing field of automatic indexing and 
retrieval of images and speech and, more generally, to all processing of
audio-visual and multimedia information 
on various supports, including the net. The conference is of interest for
several scientific communities, including 
Information Retrieval, Natural Language Processing, Spoken Language
Processing, Computer Vision, Human-
Computer Interaction and Digital Libraries. RIAO 2000 will, thereby, serve
as a forum for synergetic initiatives 
and forward-looking applications. 

The Scientific Committee will select the papers and the Application
Committee will select the innovative 
applications and products to be presented at the conference. In order to
support the multi-disciplinary goals of 
the conference, these international committees include representatives of
different scientific communities.

RIAO 2000 will present recent scientific research advances, demonstrations
of prototypes resulting from this 
research as well as the most innovative products now appearing on the
market. A worldwide Call for Papers is 
addressed to researchers engaged in academic or industrial research. The
associated Call for Applications is 
addressed to companies and public organizations developing or marketing
hardware or software related to the 
conference topics.
