 CALL FOR PAPERS

 5TH RIAO CONFERENCE
 COMPUTER ASSISTED INFORMATION SEARCHING ON INTERNET

 25th-27th June 1997
 McGill University, Montreal, Quebec H3A 2T7,Canada,
 =========================================================

"RIAO 97" will be the fifth conference in the series. RIAO 85
took place in France, RIAO 88 at MIT (Cambridge MA., U.S.A.),
RIAO 91 in Barcelona, Spain, and RIAO 94 in New York.

The Conference is organized by the "CENTRE DE HAUTES ETUDES
INTERNATIONALES D'INFORMATIQUE DOCUMENTAIRE" (CID) Paris.

Facing the growth of document information available throught the
Internet way (Web sites, NewsGroups or emails), it is necessary
to offer new technologies, mechanisms and systems to manage all
that information. The huge amount of information implies rapid
indexing and retrieval engines, efficient datamining and
knowledge discovery systems in oder to find relevant or strategic
information. On one hand,linguistic tools are necessary when
managing textual information ; one the other hand specifics
problems have to be solved regarding the management of multimedia
information : multimedia information characterisation, search
mechanisms, multimedia interfaces. Tools are also necessary to
deal with the diversity of the information source. Where is the
relevant information stored? Which are the best sources? How can
heterogeneous repositories be queried, ...? Finally, the current
ways of diffusing information such as the Internet lead to
security problems that must not be overlooked.

The purpose of this conference is to confront specialists in
media contents with specialists in Web-based searching.

More specifically, papers are expected to cover one or more of the
following topics :

 A - Rapid indexing and retrieval engines, automatic abstracting

 B - Evaluation of linguistic tools in information retrieval

 C - Information Retrieval from several repositories
 - Identification of duplicated documents in different
repositories (different languages, structures or versions),
 - Unification of documents from heterogeneous repositories ;
datawarehousing,
 - Interest of the use of datamining and knowledge discovery
strategies when querying large repositories,
 - Evaluation of repository for a given search strategy.

 D - Technology watch techniques using strategy on the Web ;
content adressable electronic mail, news group, WWW systems.

 E - Architecture
 - How can large data flows be exploited by information
retrieval tools,
 - Distributed, multi-agent architectures

 F - Image
 - Image content characterisation, human and automatic image
description methods,
 - Image search strategies

 G - Sound
 - Sound content characterisation,
 - Automatic identification of sound type: speech, music...,
 - Spoken language recognition,
 - Word-spotting.

 H - Content-based compression techniques

 I - Multimedia interfaces : Iconic, navigational, speech interface
to web search

 J - Data security problems: copyright protection, internet crime

 K - Web-related international conventions and policies
