The primary aim of the Italian Information Retrieval (IIR) workshop is to provide an international meeting forum where researchers, and especially early stage researchers, from the domain of Information Retrieval and related disciplines can exchange information and present past results and innovative research developments in an informal way.

IIR 2010 will take place at the University of Padova, Italy, on January 27-28, 2010 in conjunction with the Italian Research Conference on Digital Libraries (IRCDL, January 28-29, 2010).


Papers may range from theoretical work to system descriptions. We particularly encourage Ph.D. students or early stage researchers to submit their research. We also welcome contributions from the industry when they focus on novel research directions. Submissions will be reviewed by at least three domain experts. The conference language is English. Please, submit papers in PDF, using the ACM SIG Proceedings style. Papers have a length of maximum 5 pages. Moreover, extended abstract containing descriptions of on-going projects or presenting results already published are also welcome and should be at most 2 pages long. Accepted papers will be published in on-line proceedings on CEUR-WS.
