The TEFKO 2010 conference honors our colleague and friend, Professor Tefko Saracevic, on the occasion of his 80th birthday.  What better way to celebrate than with a research conference?  Tefko has made a fundamental, profound and broad-ranging contribution to information science and to librarianship, and is among the most cited researchers in our field. This conference aims to gather Tefko’s students, his co-authors, his collaborators, and his friends. The conference will comprise a few invited talks and many contributed papers.
