CLEF 2012 in Rome

CLEF 2012: Conference and Labs of the Evaluation Forum: First Call for Participation

The CLEF 2012 is next year's edition of the popular CLEF campaign and workshop series which has run since 2000 contributing to the systematic evaluation of information access systems, primarily through experimentation on shared tasks. In 2010 CLEF was launched in a new format, as a conference with research presentations, panels, poster and demo sessions and laboratory evaluation workshops. Labs follow under two types: laboratories to conduct evaluation of information access systems, and workshops to discuss and pilot innovative evaluation activities. In 2012, CLEF will take place in September 17-20 in Rome, and researchers and practitioners from all segments of the information access and related communities are invited to participate to the following Evaluation Labs:

  • CHiC – Cultural Heritage in CLEF
  • CLEF-IP – Informaton Retrieval in the Intellectual Property domain
  • ImageCLEF – Cross Language Image Retrieval
  • INEX – INitiative for the Evaluation of XML Retrieval
  • PAN – Uncovering Plagiarism, Authorship, and Social Software Misuse
  • QA4MRE – Question Answering for Machine Reading Evaluation
  • RepLab 2012 – Online Reputation Management
  • CLEFeHealth – Electronic Health
