ESSIR 2011

8th European Summer School on Information Retrieval

29 Aug - 02 Sep 2011, Koblenz, Germany

Time to say goodbye

The 8th International Summer School on Information Retrieval offered high quality teaching on Information Retrieval and related research topics to a broad audience of computer scientists and research students working on topics related to management of information on the Internet, as well as for industrialists who wish to know more about this highly important topic. Traditionally, ESSIR served a central meeting point for IR-oriented students and young researchers and, accordingly, an incubator for new ideas and paradigms.

ESSIR is the only world-wide school in Information Retrieval. It's a scientific event with temporal regularity founded in 1990 which gave rise to a series of IR Summer Schools. ESSIR 2011 took place in Koblenz / Germany (Rhineland) in the week between 2011-08-29 and 2011-09-02.
