Call for Course Proposals

The second Russian Summer School in Information Retrieval will be held
September 1-5, 2008 in Taganrog, Russia. The school is co-organized by
the Russian Information Retrieval Evaluation Seminar (ROMIP,
http://romip.ru/) and Taganrog Institute of Technology
(http://www.tsure.ru/). The first RuSSIR took place in Ekaterinburg,
Russia in September 2007 (see http://romip.ru/russir2007/) and was a
big success.

The target audience of the Summer School is advanced graduate and PhD
students, post-doctoral researchers, academic and industrial researchers
and developers. The mission of the school is to make students familiar with
a wide range of modern problems and methods in Information Retrieval; to
stimulate scientific research in the field of Information Retrieval and to
create an opportunity for informal contacts among scientists, students and
industry professionals.
RuSSIR2008 will offer 4 or 5 one-week courses and host approximately 100
participants. The working languages of the school are Russian and English.

The city of Taganrog is located on the Sea of Azov near the mouth of the
Don River. Closeness to the sea, fresh air and a lot of sunshine provide
excellent conditions for living, working and recreation. Taganrog
Technological Institute of Southern Federal University (TTI SFU) is one of
the leading engineering training facilities in Russia.

The RuSSIR2008 Organizing Committee invites proposals for courses on a wide
range of IR-related topics, including but not limited to:
- IR theory and models
- IR architectures
- algorithms and data structures for IR
- text IR
- multimedia (incl. music, speech, image, video, etc.) IR
- natural language techniques in IR tasks
- user interfaces for IR
- Web IR (including duplicate detection, hyperlink analysis, query log
- text mining, information and fact extraction
- mobile applications for IR
- dynamic media IR (blogs, news, WIKIs)
- social IR (collaborative filtering, tagging, recommendation systems)
- IR evaluation.

Each course should consist of five 90-minute-long sessions (normally in
five subsequent days). The course may include both lectures and practical
exercises. A course proposal must contain a brief description of the course
(up to 200 words), preferred schedule, prerequisites, equipment needs, as
well as a short description of teaching/research experience and contact
information of the lecturer.

RuSSIR2008 organizers will cover travel expenses and accommodation during
the school. Lecturers are not paid for their contribution.
Details of reimbursement will be negotiated with each lecturer
individually. The RuSSIR organizers will highly appreciate if,
whenever it is possible, lecturers could find alternative funding to cover
travel and accommodation expenses and indicate this possibility in the

Anyone interested in lecturing at RuSSIR2008 is encouraged to submit
proposal by email to Pavel Braslavski pbyandex-team.ru by 31 January
2008. All submitters will be notified by February 20, 2008 about selection
