***** CALL FOR PAPERS *****
The Second International Workshop on Evaluating Information Access
(EVIA 2008), A Satellite Workshop of NTCIR-7
Workshop Date: December 16, 2008 (Day 1 of the NTCIR-7 Meeting)
Workshop Venue: National Institute of Informatics, Tokyo, Japan.
Evaluation of Information Retrieval, Question Answering and Text
Summarisation systems has been central to Information Access
research for decades. As retrieval becomes more pervasive and
diverse, the need for effective and efficient evaluation has never
been more important. For example, at SIGIR 2007, three sessions
on Evaluation were held, along with others that also cover
evaluation-related topics. Recognising a need to provide a forum
for discussing the evaluation issues intensively, The First
International Workshop on Evaluating Information Access
(EVIA 2007) was held on May 15, 2007 -- Day 1 of the NTCIR-6
Workshop Meeting -- at the
National Institute of Informatics, Tokyo, Japan. The EVIA 2007
Workshop consisted of invited paper sessions, a regular paper
session and a poster session, and attracted participants from
Asia, Europe and America. All the papers are available online:
Following the success of EVIA 2007, The SECOND International
Workshop on Evaluating Information Access (EVIA 2008) will be
held on December 16, 2008 -
Day 1 of the NTCIR-7 Workshop Meeting. We will welcome papers
addressing one or more of the following topics:
-- Test collections, their formation, evaluation metrics and
-- Cross-conference comparison: NTCIR, CLEF, TREC, DUC
-- Evaluation of specific information access tasks, e.g., for
education and training
-- Evaluation of query-specific approaches
-- Evaluation of multilingual, multimedia and/or mobile
-- Real-world search topics and/or evaluation in vivo
-- Novel information access tasks and their evaluation
We welcome two types of papers.
Both types will go through a double-blind reviewing process.
Regular papers: 6-12 pages.
Short papers: 1-4 pages.
Papers must be submitted to the EVIA 2008 submission website
in pdf format.
