 NTCIR-15

 Evaluation of Information Access Technologies
 Call for Participation to the NTCIR-15 Kick-off Event

  http://research.nii.ac.jp/ntcir/ntcir-15/

 September 30 (Monday) 2019, 15:00 - 17:00
  National Institute of Informatics (NII),
  Room 1901-1903, Tokyo, Japan

==========================================================


The collaborative activity for enhancing information access technologies
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Development of information access technologies based on techniques of
information retrieval, natural language processing, and database management
becomes increasingly more important for many applications
(e.g., providing effective access to Web resources and text archives,
and analyzing big data obtained from various kinds of sensors).
It is indispensable for developing such technologies to experimentally evaluate
them by using test collections constructed under collaborations of
many researchers. Over the 20 years, NTCIR has been formulating
the infrastructure for the evaluation, and contributing to development of
the information access technologies. NTCIR has been the major forum
for researchers to intensively discuss the evaluation methodology of
emerging information access technologies.

As the details have been finalized for NTCIR-15, we would like to hold an event
to introduce the NTCIR-15 and exciting new evaluation tasks.
Are you a researcher in information access area, a faculty member,
a researcher in industry, or simply interested in informatics?
Anyone is welcome for the event!
Join us to share the advance of the state of the art
information access research and development!
