A call for papers — with submission deadlines of 13 May 2011 for research papers and 3 June 2011 for position papers — has been posted for SIRE 2011: SIGIR 2011 Information Retrieval for E-Discovery Workshop, to be held 28 July 2011 in Beijing, China.
The workshop will be collocated with SIGIR 2011: The 34th Annual ACM SIGIR Conference.
Papers are invited on the following topics:
- Distributed search of large heterogeneous enterprise information systems, including corporate intranets, archival and backup repositories, cloud-based storage, etc.
- High-recall search of large collections, including those with high densities of relevant documents
- Supervised learning of classifiers for responsiveness, privilege and other factors of interest (sometimes referred to in e-discovery as predictive coding)
- IR techniques that leverage the characteristics of specific types of business records (email, instant messages, voice mail, file systems, etc.)
- Clustering, link analysis, and other methods for discovering structure in large collections, including detection of duplicate documents
- Process design for human-in-the-loop review and exploitation of large data sets, including measurement of inter-reviewer consistency, active learning, etc.
- Evaluation design, including sampling strategies, estimation of confidence intervals, and reusability of large test collections
