[InetBib] Autumn School for Information Retrieval and Information Foraging (ASIRF 2018) - Call for Participation

Autumn School for Information Retrieval and Information Foraging


September 16-21, 2018, at the Leibniz Center for Informatics Schloss Dagstuhl 

The Autumn School for Information Retrieval and Information Foraging (ASIRF) 
focuses on recent developments in information retrieval and information seeking 
behaviour and their applications. ASIRF provides a holistic perspective of the 
two fields and shows how Information Retrieval and Information Foraging 
interact. In addition to conceptual and methodological knowledge from both 
fields, ASIRF will also consider the application of methods from information 
retrieval and information behaviour in important application areas like digital 

ASIRF 2018 will take place from September 16 to September 21, 2018 in Schloss 
Dagstuhl, Wadern, Germany, the renowned meeting centre for computer scientists 
from throughout the world. It provides nine tutorials, from foundations of 
Information Retrieval and Information Foraging over recent research topics such 
as collaborative IR, searching and mining argumentation structure to the 
application of these methods. The lectures are complemented by case studies 
where students can apply their newly acquired knowledge to real research 
problems. Students and lecturers will live together for a week at Schloss 
Dagstuhl, which guarantees for a highly communicative and interactive 
atmosphere of the school. The intended audience of ASIRF are doctoral students, 
young researchers and practitioners from industry working in Information 
Retrieval, Information Foraging or using concepts or methods from these fields.
