				   RIAO 2000 : Content-Based Multimedia
				   Information Access

				   College de France
				   Paris, France
				   April 12-14, 2000

				                                 Web site:

								 Organized by:

								 C.A.S.I.S. (USA)

								 With the
								 of AII, ASIS,
								 ELRA, Elsnet,
								 ESCA, Francil

The conference scope will range from the traditional processing of
text documents to the rapidly growing field of automatic indexing and
retrieval of images and speech and, more generally, to all processing of
audio-visual and multimedia information on various distribution venues,
including the Net. The conference is of interest for several scientific
communities, including Information Retrieval, Natural Language Processing,
Spoken Language Processing, Computer Vision, Human-Computer
Interaction and Digital Libraries. RIAO 2000 will, thereby, serve as a forum
for cross-discipline initiatives and innovative applications.

RIAO 2000 will present recent scientific progress, demonstrations of
prototypes resulting from this research as well as the most innovative
products now appearing on the market. A worldwide Call for Papers is
addressed to researchers engaged in academic or industrial research. The
associated Call for Applications is addressed to companies and public
organizations developing or marketing hardware or software related to the
conference topics.

The RIAO (Computer-Assisted Information Retrieval) International Conference
is held every 3 years. Sites for the conference have been Grenoble (1985),
Boston (1988), Barcelona (1991), New York (1994) and Montreal (1997).

The Scientific Program will include invited talks, presentations of accepted
papers in oral and poster sessions and panel sessions. There will be parallel
sessions, devoted to a given research field, and plenary sessions, presenting
topics of interest for all participants. The mode of presentation
(oral versus poster) will be based on the appropriateness of the paper to that
mode of communication, not on the quality of the paper.

Authors are invited to submit short or long papers on the conference topics.
The papers will be reviewed by the International Scientific Committee, and
selected on the basis of their scientific and technological quality, their
innovative content and their relevance to the topic of the conference.

Interested parties are invited to submit their paper to the following address:
         riao2000 at limsi.fr
	 Subject: Paper Submission

	 Electronic submissions will be acknowledged within 48 hours. If they
	 are not
	 acknowledged, please check the Email address and resubmit. See the
	 RIAO 2000
	 Web site for all information relevant to submission procedures and
	 the members of the Program Committee, etc.


	 * Submission deadline: ***November 8, 1999***
	 * Notification of acceptance: December 15, 1999
	 * Submission of complete papers: January 15, 2000
	 * Final Program: January 25, 2000
	 * Conference: April 12-14, 2000

In addition to scientific presentations and scientific demonstrations,
Innovative Industrial Applications treating the Conference themes will
be selected by the Applications Committee.

Selected applications will be given on-site demonstration space for
the duration of the RIAO'2000 Conference (three days).  They will also
be awarded a RIAO-branded icon for their web pages displaying
"Selected as Innovative Application at RIAO'2000".  A time will be set
aside during the Conference for a "deal-making" session in which
industrial partners can make contacts with research partners.

Interested parties are invited to submit a short
description of their product to the following address:
         riao2000 at limsi.fr
	 Subject: Application Submission

	 Please give your
	 -- product name
	 -- a succinct description of its innovative characteristics
	 -- the RIAO theme(s) that the application addresses

	 You will be given by return e-mail an application number and
	 instructions of where to find the complete online submission
	 application. See the RIAO 2000 Web site for all information relevant
	 submission procedures and formats, the members of the Application
	 Committee, etc.
