[Information Retrieval]: Welcome to the course Information Retrieval

Next Wednesday, 6 September, we start our full semester course Information Retrieval. I think we have put together and interesting course with a number of national and international guest speakers such as Iadh Ounis from the University of Glasgow who is one of the architects of the Terrier system.

In November, we will switch from lectures to small research projects in students participate actively in research done at the University of Twente. In this second part, the meetings will be used to set up a discussion forum in which all participants actively exchange their ideas, progress and problems encountered.

If you did not already do so, please buy the reader Information Retrieval.
We wish you a fruitful course!
