Nelly Litvak and I organize a small but really interesting seminar before the PhD defense of Henning Rode on 27 June 2008: The first SIKS/Yahoo Seminar on Searching and Ranking in Structured Text Repositories. The goal of the one day seminar is to bring together researchers from companies and academia working in the area of computer science and applied mathematics on ranking and searching in highly dynamic, structured text environments. Keynote speakers are:
- Ricardo Baeza-Yates (Yahoo! Research, Barcelona, Spain)
- Debora Donato (Yahoo! Research, Barcelona, Spain)
The seminar is sponsored by: WGI, CTIT, NWO, SIKS, and Yahoo. Please send your name and affiliation to ssr (at) lists.utwente.nl if you plan to participate in the seminar.
