[ntcir:135] RIAO 2004: Call for Participation - April 26-28, 2004

Title: RIAO 2004 - Program
Please find a call for participation to the seventh RIAO 

RIAO 2004 will take place in Avignon "Vaucluse", France 
from April 26 to April 28. We look forward to seeing you 


G. Grefenstette, co-chair of the program committee

Coupling Approaches, Coupling Media and Coupling Languages
for Information Retrieval


University of Avignon (Vaucluse $(H France)
26-28 Avril 2004


The seventh RIAO conference is organised by:

(C.I.D., France)


in collaboration with the LIA (Laboratoire d'Informatique d'Avignon - Université d'Avignon)

with technical support from l'IRIT (Institut de Recherche en Informatique de Toulouse)

in cooperation with the Commissariat à l'Energie Atomique (CEA) LIST



Current content-based information management involves many different disciplines. Information must be retrieved from video, from sound, and from images and graphs. Question answering involves both syntax and semantics.

Information classification and filtering involve machine learning and linguistics. In addition, as information technology spreads throughout the world, a wider variety of languages in increasingly complex combinations must be handled.

In response to these evolving needs, RIAO'2004 conference will cover the coupling of techniques from different domains to improve information retrieval. RIAO'2004 will present innovative research and developments from all areas of multi-media and multi-language information retrieval. Combination of techniques from disparate domains, will treat retrieval from either a single medium, or across media (indexing one medium for find information in another), or from coupling unstructured and structured information (e.g. exploiting both text and XML structure), or from across languages.

RIAO'2004 presents recent scientific progress in these areas with oral presentations, demonstrations of research prototypes, as well as presenting a selection of innovative products present on the market.

RIAO (which stands for Recherche d'Information Assistée par Ordinateur ) is organized every three years since 1985. Previous RIAO Conferences were held in Grenoble, France (1985), at MIT in Cambridge Massachussetts. USA (1988), in Barcelona, Spain (1991), in New York USA (1994), at Mc Gill, Montreal (1997), and at the Collège de France, Paris (2000) The conference is organized by the Centre de Hautes Etudes Internationales d'Informatique Documentaire (C.I.D.) in conjunction with various partners.

This year's conference presents research from 18 different countries, two invited keynote speeches, 13 sessions of oral presentations, a poster session and a session dedicated to cultural applications. The 51 papers presented, 16 posters, and various presentations will give an overview of the state-of-the-art in this rapidly changing domain.

Concurrent to the scientific presentations, a wide variety of innovative applications will be presented by an international selection of companies. Each application was chosen by an Applications Committee using the same criteria of quality and originality as the Scientific Committee for the written scientific communications.

The selection of the innovative applications and products is not finished. The list of accepted ones will be soon available on the RIAO web site

Applications and products will be chosen among the following topics:

  • Multimedia indexing and retrieval systems (text, sound, speech, images, video)
  • Cross-lingual indexing and retrieval systems
  • Peer-to-peer text search engines
  • Cooperative Information Retrieval (grids)
  • Automatic XML structuring of documents
  • Automatic metadata generation for text, sound, and images, automatic annotators
  • Automated ontology construction and annotators
  • Topic detection and event detection in streaming documents, technology watch, strategy watch
  • Intelligent message filtering
  • Intelligent text agents
  • Parent control and anti-spam control by content filtering
  • E-learning - response interpretation
  • Document summarisation -- mono or multilingual, mono or multidocument, profile driven
  • Topic maps
  • Domain-specific application of information retrieval and multimedia retrieval: medicine, e-commerce, computer-assisted teaching, video production, etc

Demonstrations will be organized all along the conference and short oral presentations will be held in parallel sessions, Monday afternoon (13:45 - 15:25 and 16:55 - 17:55)
