The purpose of the Italian Information Retrieval (IIR) workshop series is to provide a meeting forum for stimulating and disseminating research in Information Retrieval and the related disciplines, where Italian researchers, especially early stage researchers, can exchange information and present results in an informal way.

The first two successful editions took place in Padua (2010) and Milan (2011).

IIR 2012 will take place at the Dipartimento di Informatica (DIB), Università di Bari "Aldo Moro", Bari, Italy, on January 26-27, 2012 just after EVALITA 2011, that will be held on January 24-25, 2012, in Rome (about 4 hours from Bari by train).

IIR 2012 will offer an opportunity to present and discuss theoretical and empirical research.

Relevant topics include, but are not restricted to, the following subjects:
  • Ranking (e.g., retrieval models, learning to rank, diversity, combining searches)
  • Queries (e.g., query intent, query log analysis, query reformulation, question answering)

  • Content analysis (e.g., document representation, information extraction, clustering, classification, sentiment analysis, cross-lingual IR)

  • Efficiency (e.g., indexing, compression, distributed IR)

  • Filtering (e.g., content-based filtering, collaborative filtering, recommender systems)

  • Evaluation (e.g., test collections, effectiveness measures, experimental design)

  • Users (e.g., user models, user studies, search interface, personalized search)
  • Web IR (e.g., link analysis, social network analysis, blog search, computational advertising)
  • Multimedia IR (e.g., image search, video search, music IR)
  • Structured IR (e.g., XML search, desktop search, entity search)

  • Other applications (e.g., genomics IR, legal IR, mobile IR, patent search, digital libraries, IR for cultural heritage, enterprise search, geographic IR)
