 CALL FOR PAPERS
 RIAO'97 CONFERENCE
 Computer-Assisted Searching on the Internet
 June 25-27, 1997
 McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada

 ***********************************************************

 Brief Description and Themes:

 Every third year the Centre de Hautes Etudes Internationales
 d'Information Documentaire (CID) of Paris, France, along with various
 international affiliates, organizes the RIAO conference (RIAO is the French
 acronym for Computer-Assisted Information Retrieval). RIAO97 will be the
 fifth conference in the series. RIAO85 was held in Grenoble, France; RIAO88
 in Cambridge, MA, USA (MIT); RIAO91 in Barcelona, Spain; and RIAO97 in New
 York City (Rockefeller University).

 RIAO conferences, all of which have had printed proceedings,
 have the special feature of incorporating both scientific papers and 
 innovative product demonstrations. Both the product demonstrations and the 
 scientific papers (which are often accompanied by prototype system 
 demonstrations) are subject to a rigorous selection process. While 
 commercial displays, as such, are not promulgated, the mix of scientific 
 expertise and state-of-the-art industrial development lends itself to a 
 critical examination of both with the potential for advances in product 
 development and sponsorship as well as the initiation of lines for further, 
 critical research investigations.


 RIAO97 focuses on new problems in information retrieval, filtering, 
 and
 dissemination resulting from the recent profusion and extensions of networks.
 In particular, we seek to bring together search specialists and web-based
 media specialists to consider how searching can best be accomplished in the
 context of a proliferation of web sites, content formats, browsing modalities,
 amount of data accessible, and number of user accesses. Toward these ends the
 following topics are among those sought for inclusion in conference papers and
 demonstrations:

 A: Rapid indexing and retrieval engines; automatic abstracting

 B: Linguistic tools in information retrieval

 C: Information retrieval from heterogeneous formats
 - Identifcation of the same document in different contexts
 (different languages, structures, versions, etc.)
 - Unification of documents from heterogeneous formats; data-wharehousing
 - Data-mining and knowledge discovery in large databases
 - Search strategies in heterogenous contexts


 D: Strategies for technology watch on the Web; content addressable electronic
 mail, newsgroups, and other WWW systems

 E: Architecture
 - How to exploit large bandwidth for information retrieval
 - Distributed multi-agent architectures


 F: Imaging
 - Content characterization; manual and automatic description methods
 - Search strategies

 G: Sound
 - Sound content characterization
 - Automatic indentification of sound type: speech, music, ...
 - Spoken language recognition; word (boundary) identification

 H: Multimedia Web interfaces: Iconic, navigational, and speech interfaces

 I: Content-based compression techniques

 J: Data security problems: copyright protection, internet crime


 K: Web-related international conventions and policies
