PROMISE Technology Transfer Day @ CeBIT 2013

5-6 March, Hanover, Germany

The aim of the PROMISE Technology Transfer Day is to put researchers,
software developers and users together in order to facilitate a two-way
communication of research advances and results by researchers, as well
as the reverse flow of requirements and ideas from users and developers.
The final goal is to stimulate the discussion on Information Access
technologies and provide a forum in which invited speakers can share
their experiences, identify common strategies and needs, and detect
future challenges in this field.

Gathering, sorting, evaluating and retrieving information is
increasingly becoming crucial for professional (information) workers and
also in every-day life. Consequently, information retrieval technology
has been widely adopted in some fields, with some IR applications, such
as Web search services becoming immensely popular.
Academic research has started to branch into many aspects covering
advanced IR issues such as the handling of multilingual and multimedia
information, but there is as yet little take-up in operational systems
for the proposed solutions.
A methodology to perform an application-centric evaluation of
operational information access systems will be presented and Best
practice recommendations for IR system developers, IR application
implementers and IR ap-plication maintainers will be given.

Key speakers from both technology producers and users will be invited to
present their experiences, requirements and problems with respect to
Information Access technology.
