Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics; Text/Corpus Linguistics

Meeting Description:

Search Solutions is a special one-day event dedicated to the latest innovations
in web & enterprise search. In contrast to other major industry events, Search
Solutions aims to be highly interactive and collegial, with attendance limited
to 60 delegates. The high quality technical programme includes presentations,
panels and case studies in which delegates present and share opinions, insight
and expertise.

As in previous years we expect a good mix of research students, academics,
practicioners and developers to attend. It should be particularly appealing to
anybody interested in natural language processing (NLP), information retrieval
(IR) and knowledge management (KM) because 'Search Solutions 2010' showcases how
these normally fairly separate communities can work together to move the state
of the art in search technology forward.

We will have talks from the following speakers:

Behshad Behzadi, Google: 'Web Search Freshness'
Vishwa Vinay, Microsoft: 'Click Evidence - Signals and Tasks'
Greg Lindahl, Blekko: 'Instant Indexing'

Nick Patience, 451 Group: 'The Trends Shaping the Future of Enterprise Search
Dusan Rnic, Endeca: ''Enterprise Search and its Evolution''
Chirag Gandhi, mPhasis: ''I Still Haven't Found What I am Looking for...''

Charlie Hull, Flax: 'What's the Story with Open Source? - Searching and
Monitoring News Media with Open-source Technology'
Till Kinstler, German Common Library Network: 'Current Trends in Library Search:
From Electronic Card Boxes to Large Scale, Aggregated Search Engines'
Roberto Cornacchia, Spinque: 'Search by Strategy'

Mihai Lupu, Information Retrieval Facility: 'Scaling up Innovation'
Rob Stacey, TrueKnowledge: 'Reconciling Facts: How to Check the Consistency of
Facts Created from Web Crawling'
Vivian Lin Dufour, Yahoo!: 'How to Help Searchers Become Better Searchers'
