***************************************************************************************************** PROMISE Technology Transfer Day @ CeBIT 2013

5-9 March 2013, Hanover, Germany



The aim of the PROMISE Technology Transfer Day is to put researchers, software developers and users together in order to facilitate a two-way communication of research advances and results by researchers, as well as the reverse flow of requirements and ideas from users and developers. The final goal is to stimulate the discussion on Information Access technologies and provide a forum in which invited speakers can share their experiences, identify common strategies and needs, and detect future challenges in this field.

Gathering, sorting, evaluating and retrieving information is increasingly becoming crucial for professional (information) workers and also in every-day life. Consequently, information retrieval technology has been widely adopted in some fields, with some IR applications, such as Web search services becoming immensely popular. Academic research has started to branch into many aspects covering advanced IR issues such as the handling of multilingual and multimedia information, but there is as yet little take-up in operational systems for the proposed solutions. A methodology to perform an application-centric evaluation of operational information access systems will be presented and Best practice recommendations for IR system developers, IR application implementers and IR application maintainers will be given.

Key speakers from both technology producers and users will be invited to present their experiences, requirements and problems with respect to Information Access technology.
