Tutorial: Advanced language modeling approaches

(Case study: Expert search)

I will give a tutorial at the 30th European Conference on Information Retrieval (ECIR): The tutorial gives a clear and detailed overview of advanced language modeling approaches and tools, including the use of document priors, translation models, relevance models, parsimonious models and expectation maximization training. Expert search will be used as a case study to explain the consequences of modeling assumptions.
