Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics

Call Deadline: 28-Feb-2010

Meeting Description:

The goal of this workshop is to study different aspects of Information Filtering
Evaluation and to bring together researchers from the community of Information
Filtering to develop new evaluation frameworks and confront current models with
these new evaluation models. Submissions are expected to propose new insights on
evaluation methodologies and resources for Information Filtering or to present
Information Filtering models that will meet the requirements of a real usage
evaluation (in particular, researchers that submit papers presenting Information
Filtering Models are encouraged to evaluate their model using an existing
benchmark such as the INFILE benchmark, available at http://www.infile.org)

Call for Papers

Evaluation of Information Filtering Systems in a Competitive Intelligence
Framework Workshop
22 May 2010
Held in conjunction with LREC 2010, Malta

Aims
The constant growth of publicly available information has entailed a
consequently similar growth in the research areas devoted to the automated
organization of this information. In particular, Information Filtering systems
have been developed to tackle the issues of many applications of business
intelligence, from mail categorization to news routing and technology watch.
However, the theoretically challenging models of these systems have seldom been
evaluated in real usage context. Indeed, standard evaluation benchmarks usually
introduce artefacts that simplify the task. For instance, in the context of
competitive intelligence, systems must filter documents without any global
information on a "collection" but can use feedback from the user, and must be
efficient enough to deal with a real-time document stream. Furthermore, with the
increase of globalized access and availability of the information, sources may
be found in many languages, and the multilinguality issue must also be
considered. TREC Adaptive Filtering Track and INFILE track at CLEF for
multilingual information filtering have tried to propose evaluation frameworks
closer to the usage.

The goal of this workshop is to study different aspects of Information Filtering
Evaluation and to bring together researchers from the community of Information
Filtering to develop new evaluation frameworks and confront current models with
these new evaluation models. Submissions are expected to propose new insights on
evaluation methodologies and resources for Information Filtering or to present
Information Filtering models that will meet the requirements of a real usage
evaluation (in particular, researchers that submit papers presenting Information
Filtering Models are encouraged to evaluate their model using an existing
benchmark such as the INFILE benchmark, available at http://www.infile.org).

Topics
Both theoretical and practical research papers are welcome from both research
and industrial communities addressing the main workshop theme, in any aspect
including:
- Resources and methodologies for Evaluation of Information Filtering Systems in
real usage context
- New models for Information Filtering, that tackle one or several issues of
this kind of evaluation: efficiency, adaptability, multilinguality, etc.
- Results of the Evaluation of Information Filtering Systems
- User studies of the use of Information Filtering Systems in Competitive
Intelligence

Submission Information
Papers will be submitted to the workshop via the START LREC Conference Manager,
under https://www.softconf.com/lrec2010/InFile2010/
Authors should submit a PDF file of no more than 10 pages, following the LREC
conference formatting details. Papers will be reviewed by three members of the
Program Committee,

Accepted papers will be published in the workshop Proceedings. When submitting a
paper from the START page, authors will be asked to provide essential
information about resources (in a broad sense, i.e. also technologies,
standards, evaluation kits, etc.) that have been used for the work described in
the paper or are a new result of your research.

For further information on this new initiative, please refer to

Important Dates
Paper submission deadline 28 February 2010
Notification of acceptance 22 March 2010
Final version of accepted paper 4 April 2010
