Welcome to OAIR 2013 (the 10th International Conference in the RIAO series), taking place in Lisbon, Portugal from May 22 to 24, 2013.
The World Wide Web is the largest source of openly accessible data, and the most common means to connect people and share resources.
How can we link these data, people and resources? What structure can we use to search in this data? How can search in multimedia web data? How can we model the web user and use this to improve search? How can one user’s preferences be used to recommend something to another user? How can personal data be preserved in an open web? How do social connections affect search?
This conference calls for papers describing recent research in Information Retrieval concerning the integration between a Web of Data and a Web of People, to transform pure data into information, and information into usable knowledge.
The Open research Areas in Information Retrieval (OAIR) conference is a triennial conference, addressing research topics related to the design of robust and large-scale scientific and industrial solutions to information processing.
