8th Workshop on Exploiting Semantic Annotations for Information Retrieval (ESAIR’15) in conjunction with CIKM 2015

Annotation in Action Demo Track (AiAT)details:


23 October 2015, Melbourne, Australia


We are excited to announce new details about the "Annotations in Action" demo track. The best submissions will have the opportunity to be awarded $500 USD and a certificate, sponsored by Google.

The objective of the Annotations in Action Track (AiAT) is to encourage new and novel applications of semantic annotations. By semantic annotations we refer to linguistic annotations (such as named entities, semantic classes or roles, etc.) as well as user annotations (such as micro-formats, RDF, tags, etc.). The AiAT is an opportunity for researchers and software developers to show-off new and innovative prototypes.

For example, we encourage the use of recently released annotated web corpora: FACC1 <http://lemurproject.org/clueweb12/FACC1/>and FAKBA1 <http://trec-kba.org/data/fakba1/>with entity annotations.

Example applications areas include:

- Text or speech based dialogue systems

- Automatic question answering systems

- Interactive exploratory search systems

Submissions to the AiAT track must be in the form of a textual description of the demonstration to be given at the conference (which may include screenshots and must include either a link to the online demo or a video presenting it). The submissions must be at most 4 pages long including reference list (in ACM SIG format option 2) and submitted as PDF.
