Dutch-Belgian IR workshop in Twente

Vrijhof with famous sunken tower We organize the 9th Dutch-Belgian Information Retrieval Workshop (DIR) in Twente. The event will take place on February 2-3, 2009 in our lovely “Vrijhof” building. The primary aim of Dutch-Belgian Information Retrieval (DIR) workshop is to provide an international meeting place where researchers from the domain of information retrieval and related disciplines, can exchange information and present innovative research developments. The first call for papers is just out. Papers may range from theoretical work to system descriptions. We encourage Ph.D. students to submit their research. We also welcome contributions from industry when they focus on novel research directions. Have a look at the DIR website at: http://dir2009.cs.utwente.nl
