Great summer search seminars coming up
- Bruce Croft - The information retrieval landscape (Fri 26 Nov 2004 12:00-13:00)
- Mark Sanderson - SPIRIT - a geographically based search engine (Thu 2 Dec 2004 12:00-13:00)
- Ellen Voorhees - The state of the art in Question Answering (Mon 6 Dec 2004 12:00-13:00)
These three information retrieval researchers are some of the most experienced and smartest people out there in the IR community. Many of their past colleagues now work at Google (and/or Yahoo! and/or Microsoft Research), and so aren't able to talk publicly much about what they do any more.
So if you're in Canberra on any of those days, get along and hear some IR luminaries talk openly about where they think things are headed in the world of search. Contact seminars at mail . panopticsearch . com for more information.
