Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics

Call Deadline: 05-Dec-2011

Meeting Description:

When an ambiguous query is received, a sensible approach is for the information retrieval (IR) system to diversify the results retrieved for this query, in the hope that at least one of the interpretations of the query intent will satisfy the user. Diversity is an increasingly important topic, of interest to both academic researchers (such as participants in the TREC Web and Blog track diversity tasks), as well as to search engines professionals.

Call for Papers:

In this workshop, we solicit submissions both on approaches and models for diversity, the evaluation of diverse search results, and on applications and presentation of diverse search results.

We invite submissions of original research papers (6 pages) and position papers (4 pages) in the general area of diversity in document retrieval. Potential topics include (but are not limited to):

Modelling Diversity:

Implicit diversification approaches
Explicit diversification approaches
Query log mining for diversity
Learning-to-rank for diversification
Clustering of results for diversification
Query intent understanding
Query type classification

Modelling Risk:

Probability ranking principle
Risk Minimization frameworks and role diversity


Test collections for diversity
Evaluating of diverse search results
Measuring the ambiguity of queries
Measuring query aspects importance


Product & review diversification
Opinion and sentiment diversification
Diversifying Web crawling policy
Graph analysis for diversity
Legal precedents & patents
Diverse recommender systems
Diversifying in real-time & news search
Diversification in other verticals (image/video search etc.)
Presentation of diverse search results

Submission Instructions:

Submissions should report new (unpublished) research results, or ongoing research. Both technical paper submissions (up to 6 pages including references) and position papers (up to 4 pages including references) will be orally presented. All paper submissions must be written in English following the ACM option 2 templates. Submissions should not be anonymised.

Papers should be submitted through the Workshop's EasyChair submission system, which will open soon.

Important Dates:

5 December 2011: Papers due
10 January 2012: Notification of acceptance
17 January 2012: Camera-ready papers due
12 February 2012: DDR-2012 Workshop
