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, with attendance strictly limited.

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 2011' showcases how these normally fairly separate communities can work together to move the state of the art in search technology forward.

The programme includes presentations, panels and keynote talks by influential industry leaders on novel and emerging applications in search and information retrieval.

Note:

Search Solutions now offers a Tutorial Programme on Tuesday 15th November.
