Federated Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems

6th International Workshop on Advances in Semantic Information Retrieval

Gdansk, Poland, 11 - 14 September, 2016

E-mail: [hidden email]

We would like to cordially invite you to consider contributing a paper
to ASIR - held as a part of the Federated Conference on Computer Science
and Information Systems (FedCSIS 2016).

FedCSIS a yearly international multi-conference organized by the Polish
Information Processing Society (PTI) in technical cooperation with the
IEEE Region 8, IEEE Poland Section, IEEE Poland (Gdansk) Section
Computer Society Chapter, Poland Section Computational Intelligence
Society Chapter, ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing, Lodz
ACM Chapter, European Alliance for Innovation, Polish Operational and
Research Society - POSRS, Eastern Cluster ICT Poland, Mazovia Cluster ICT.

Recent advances in semantic technologies form a solid basis for a
variety of methods and instruments that support multimedia information
retrieval, knowledge representation, discovery and analysis. They
influence the way and form of representing documents in the memory of
computers, approaches to analyze documents, techniques to mine and
retrieve knowledge. The abundance of video, voice and speech data also
raises new challenging problems to multimedia information retrieval systems.

We believe that our workshop will facilitate discussions of new research
results in this area, and will serve as a meeting place for researchers
from all over the world. Our aim is to create an atmosphere of
friendship and cooperation for everyone, interested in computational
linguistics and semantic information retrieval. The ASIR’16 workshop
will continue to maintain high standards of quality and organization,
set in the previous years. We welcome all the researchers, interested in
semantic information retrieval, to join our event.


The workshop addresses semantic information retrieval theory and
important matters, related to practical Web tools. The topics and areas
include but not limited to:

- Domain-specific semantic applications.
- Evaluation methodologies for semantic search and retrieval.
- Models for document representation.
- Natural language semantic processing.
- Ontology for semantic information retrieval.
- Ontology alignment, mapping and merging.
- Query interfaces.
- Searching and ranking.
- Semantic multimedia retrieval.
- Visualization of retrieved results.


Papers should be submitted by April 18, 2016 (strict deadline).
Preprints will be published on a USB memory stick provided to the
FedCSIS participants. Only papers presented during the conference will
be submitted to the IEEE for inclusion in the Xplore Digital Library.
Furthermore, proceedings, published in a volume with ISBN, ISSN and DOI
numbers will posted at the conference WWW site. Moreover, most Events'
organizers arrange quality journals, edited volumes, etc. and may invite
selected extended and revised papers for post-conference publications
(information can be found at the websites of individual events).
