Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics

Meeting Description:

We are pleased to announce ECIR 2011 Industry Day, which takes place on
the final day of the European Conference on Information Retrieval (ECIR) in
Dublin. At last year's event there was a distinct computational linguistics
theme to the day and this year's talks will again cover the whole spectrum of
information retrieval to natural language processing and semantic analysis.

This year's event includes an outstanding range of speakers addressing
fundamental issues in search such as scalability and relevance ranking as
well as novel and innovative developments in mobile search, semantic
analysis and open source search. With this mix of experts we should also
get a unique preview into what the future might hold.

The event should appeal to search practitioners, researchers, consultants,
students, academics, and developers alike.

Confirmed Speakers:

- Martin Szummer (Microsoft Research) 'Learning to rank: new techniques
and applications'

- Doug Aberdeen (Google) 'Inside the Gmail Priority Inbox'

- Flavio Junqueira (Yahoo!) 'Practical search engine caching'

- Marcello Trovati (IBM) 'The IBM Smarter Cities Initiative'

- Johannes Heinecke (Orange Labs) 'Semantic Interpretation of User
Queries'

- Gery Ducatel (BT) 'Searching Solutions for the Mobile Workforce'

- Richard Boulton (Celestial Navigation) 'Practical Lessons in Search
Ranking, Diversification, Disambiguation and Refinement'

- Charlie Hull (Flax) 'Searching the Unexpected - An Open Source Toolkit
Approach'

- Tyler Tate (TwigKit) 'From Lookup to Learning: Information-seeking as a
long-term Activity'

- Martin White (Intranet Focus) 'Search Benchmarking using a Heuristic
Technique'

ECIR Industry Day is organised by the Information Retrieval Specialist
Group of the BCS (British Computer Society)

Registration fees: Students 99 Euros (after 8th April: 125 Euros),
Regular 145 Euros (after 8th April 175 Euros)

Industry Day Organisers:
- Tony Russell-Rose, Endeca
- Udo Kruschwitz, University of Essex
