2. Keyword Search in Databases: The Power of RDBMS
 Prof. Jeffrey Xu Yu (Chinese University of Hong Kong, China)

Abstract: Keyword search in relational databases (RDBs) has been
 extensively studied recently. A keyword search (or a keyword query)
 in RDBs is specified by a set of keywords to explore the
 interconnected tuple structures in an RDB that cannot be easily
 identified using SQL on RDBMSs. In brief, it finds how the tuples
 containing the given keywords are connected via sequences of
 connections (foreign key references) among tuples in an RDB. Such
 interconnected tuple structures can be found as connected trees up
 to a certain size, sets of tuples that are reachable from a root
 tuple within a radius, or even multi-center subgraphs within a
 radius. In the literature, there are two main approaches. One is to
 generate a set of relational algebra expressions and evaluate every
 such expression using SQL on an RDBMS directly or in a middleware on
 top of an RDBMS indirectly.  Due to a large number of relational
 algebra expressions needed to process, most of the existing works
 take a middleware approach without fully utilizing RDBMSs. The other
 is to materialize an RDB as a graph and find the interconnected
 tuple structures using graph-based algorithms in memory. In this
 talk we focus on using SQL to compute all the interconnected tuple
 structures for a given keyword query.  We show that the current
 commercial RDBMSs are powerful enough to support such keyword
 queries in RDBs efficiently without any additional new indexing to
 be built and maintained.

3. Spatiotemporal Query Processing: What's New and What's Hot
 Prof. Xiaofang Zhou (University of Queensland, Australia)

Abstract: Spatiotemporal query processing becomes an active
 research area again in recent years, driven by not only
 intellectually challenging research issues related to performance,
 scalability and uncertainty emerging from many new applications, but
 also the wide spread adoption of positioning devices, location-based
 services and high quality digital maps. In this talk, we will
 present an overview of this research field, followed by discussions
 of our recent work in motion pattern discovery, pattern-based
 movement predication (ICDE'08), convey detection (VLDB'08) and
 path-based nearest neighbor monitoring (SIGMOD'09). The aim of this
 talk is to share with the researchers in this area our new results,
 and also to provide an introduction for those who are new to this
 area.

4. Build Intelligence from the Physical World
 Dr. Xing Xie (Microsoft Research Asia, China)

Abstract: Context aware computing sought to deal with linking
 changes in the environment with computer systems. In other words,
 computing systems become more intelligent through analyzing and
 reacting to the physical world surrounding them. The coming era of
 cloud computing brings new opportunities to this long studied
 research area. By accumulating and aggregating physical world
 contextual information from multiple users and multiple devices over
 a long period, we can obtain collective social intelligence from
 them. Based on this, more innovative Internet services can be
 developed to facilitate people's everyday lives. At Microsoft
 Research Asia, we are working on various technologies with a view to
 managing physical world information and building intelligence from
 them. In this talk, I will present our recent work on this
 direction, as well as other related works in Microsoft and the
 industry.

5. Geographic Information Retrieval: Algorithms and Approaches
 Prof. Ray Larson (University of California at Berkeley, USA)

Abstract: The goal of Geographic Information Retrieval (GIR) is to
 retrieve relevant information resources in response to queries with
 geographic constraints. GIR implies that the indexing and retrieval
 of objects in a digital collection takes into account some form of
 georeferencing, and may use various forms of geographical proximity,
 containment, or other spatial relations in estimating or predicting
 geographic relevance. Systems that provide searches using GIR
 methods, including geographic digital libraries, and location-aware
 web search engines, are based on a collection of georeferenced
 information resources and methods to spatially search these
 resources with geographic location as part of their search
 specifications. Information resources in digital library collections
 can be considered georeferenced if they are spatially indexed by one
 or more regions or points on the surface of the Earth, where the
 specific locations of these regions are encoded using spatial
 coordinates directly (geometrically), or indirectly by toponyms
 (place names). In this lecture we will examine the effectiveness of
 Geographic Information Retrieval (GIR) methods in IR systems. We
 will show how various types of information may benefit from explicit
 geographic search, and where text-based place name search may be
 sufficient. We will also show how implicit geographic search (or
 geographic browsing) can be used to dynamically generate geographic
 searches in geographic interfaces like Google Earth. We will
 describe the algorithms used for Geographic search and how these may
 be combined with topical text searches. In addition we will show
 results from the GeoCLEF IR evaluation for text-based geographic
 search.

6. Information Access Evaluation: Some Recent Topics
 Dr. Tetsuya Sakai (Microsoft Research Asia, China)

Abstract: This talk will briefly touch upon various aspects of
 information access evaluation, including: - New information
 retrieval metrics; - New problems in information access evaluation,
 e.g. incompleteness of relevance assessments; - How to evaluate
 evaluation metrics and test collections; - New information access
 tasks, e.g., IR4QA at NTCIR, exploratory search etc.; - The gap
 between laboratory experiments and the real world; - The gap between
 academia and industry.
