SWIRL'12: The Second Strategic Workshop on Information Retrieval in Lorne
The purpose of the Second Strategic Workshop in Information Retrieval in Lorne was to explore the long-range issues of the Information Retrieval field, to recognize challenges that are on -- or even over -- the horizon, to build consensus on some of the key challenges, and to disseminate the resulting information to the research community. The intent is that this description of open problems will help to inspire researchers and graduate students to address the questions, and will provide funding agencies data to focus and coordinate support for information retrieval research.
SWIRL'12 was held from 15--17th February 2012. The first SWIRL workshop was held in 2004.
The SWIRL'12 workshop resulted in two reports:
