The aim of the Promise Winter School on “Bridging between Information Retrieval and Databases” is to give participants a grounding in the core topics that constitute the multidisciplinary area of information access and retrieval to unstructured, semistructured, and structured information.
The idea of the school stems from the observation that nowadays databases are more and more getting into techniques that have traditionally been typical of information retrieval and, viceversa, information retrieval is using more and more database-oriented techniques.
The school is a week-long event consisting of guest lectures from invited speakers who are recognized experts in the field of information retrieval and databases.
The school mainly targets PhD and Master students but all other researchers or participation from industry is welcome.
Registration deadline: 20 December 2012
Winter School: 4-8 February 2013
