Message 2: SIGIR Workshop on Methodologies and Evaluation of Lexical Cohesion in Real World Applications
Date: 18-May-2005
From: Rosie Jones <jonesryahoo-inc.com>
Subject: SIGIR Workshop on Methodologies and Evaluation of Lexical Cohesion in Real World Applications



Full Title: SIGIR Workshop on Methodologies and Evaluation of Lexical Cohesion
in Real World Applications
Short Title: ELECTRA

Date: 19-Aug-2005 - 19-Aug-2005
Location: Pestana Bahia, Salvador, Brazil
Contact Person: Rosie Jones

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics

Call Deadline: 22-May-2005

Meeting Description:

[1] Short Description:

In this workshop we are interested in pointing at successes and failures of the
integration of lexical cohesion in real-world IR applications such as document
and passage retrieval, question answering, topic segmentation and text
summarization. On the one hand, lexical cohesion has received much attention in
Information Retrieval research during its more than 30-year old history, but so
far with mixed results. On the other hand, a considerable amount of research has
been devoted to this subject, both in terms of theory and practice, by the
Natural Language Processing community, but with limited evaluation in real-world
applications. This workshop is intended to bring together IR and NLP researchers
and discuss what has been achieved in this area, to establish common themes
between different approaches, and to discuss future research directions.

[2] Target Audience:

This workshop is intended to bring together IR and NLP researchers working on
all areas of information retrieval and using lexical associations in information
retrieval applications. The objective is to discuss what has been achieved in
this area, to establish common themes between different approaches, and to
discuss future research directions.

[3] Areas of Interest:

Papers are invited on, but not limited to, the following topics:

* Efficient Techniques for Lexical Cohesion identification
* Scalable Algorithms for Lexical Cohesion identification
* Lexical Associations and Lexical Relations Resources
* Document Representation and Lexical Associations
* Document Ranking and Lexical Associations
* Single-Term and Phrase Information Retrieval
* Passage Retrieval and Lexical Cohesion
* Query Expansion and Lexical Associations
* Local and Global Context Analysis
* Ontology-based Query Expansion
* Question Answering and Lexical Relations
* Web Search and Lexical Cohesion
* Topic Segmentation and Lexical Cohesion
* Text Summarization and Lexical Cohesion
* Evaluation Standards and Benchmarks
* Qualitative and Quantitative Evaluations

Papers can cover one or more of these areas.

[4] Important dates:

Paper submission deadline: May 22th, 2005 < EXTENDED DEADLINE >
Notification: June 15th, 2005
Camera ready papers: July 1st, 2005
Workshop: August 19th, 2005

[5] Paper Submission:

Papers should follow SIGIR 2005 instructions
(http://www.dcc.ufmg.br/eventos/sigir2005/). Papers should be submitted
electronically in pdf format only to Rosie Jones [jonesryahoo-inc.com]. The
following URL transforms postscript files to pdf files (http://www.ps2pdf.com/).
The subject line should be ''SIGIR 2005 ELECTRA WORKSHOP PAPER SUBMISSION''.

Because reviewing is blind, no author information should be included as part of
the paper (i.e. the names of the authors and references that could identify the
authors). An identification page must be sent in a separate email with the
subject line ''SIGIR 2005 ELECTRA WORKSHOP ID PAGE'' and must include title,
author(s), keywords, page number and name and email of the contact author.

Late submissions will not be accepted. Notification of receipt will be emailed
to the contact author shortly after receipt.
