Meeting Description:

In co-operation with the International Conference on the Theory of
Information Retrieval (ICTIR) and Microsoft Research, Cambridge, UK, we are
holding a workshop on Automated Document Genre Classification. This
workshop is intended as a brainstorming session for building a research
agenda for automated genre classification, identification and recognition
that will enhance and support work flows within:

- Digital curation and preservation
- Information management
- Information seeking, search, and retrieval
- Information extraction and knowledge discovery

There is a lack of consensus in the genre classification research community
on methods of genre taxonomy generation, evaluation, and applications of
the study in existing systems. This event is intended to open up a
discussion forum and identify:

-How to constructively establish a useful genre taxonomy
-How to integrate and apply genre classification within existing
information systems
-How to evaluate and consolidate its usefulness and effectiveness within
these target systems.

This workshop will bring together core people within genre classification
research and the areas of research mentioned above to establish a research
road map for bringing genre classification research to applicable maturity.
