CFP RIAO 2007 - Call for Applications

RIAO 2007  8th Conference
May 30 to June 1, 2007, Pittsburgh, PA, USA
Large-Scale Semantic Access to Content

Call for Applications
Deadline: march 16 2007

The RIAO conferences are meeting places for scientific and industrial 
specialists in information retrieval. There are sites for presentations of 
both high-level peer-reviewed scientific research and prototypes and of 
innovative products, selected by a special call for products. A global call 
for products is sent at the same time that the call for papers. The 
products presented are chosen uniquely on the basis of their innovativeness.
The "Centre de Hautes tudes Internationales d'Informatique Documentaire" 
(C.I.D.) organizes the RIAO conferences every three years since 1985. RIAO 
stands for "Recherche d'Information Assiste par Ordinateur".
RIAO conferences have two selection committees: a Program Committee for 
scientific papers, and an Applications Committee which seeks out and 
selects those innovative products for the conference.
The RIAO conferences are not trade shows since the teams presenting 
innovative products are selected and do not pay for the place and time that 
they are given during the conference.
Companies whose product fulfills the criteria of novelty and of 
innovativeness can fill in a dossier designed by the conference organizers 
that describes their submitted product.
In addition to the dossier, product submitters will have to provide access 
to an online or CD version of the product that demonstrates the claimed 
innovative functionalities of the product. Applications Committee members 
will verify the functionalities of the product.
After examination of the dossier and the demonstration of each product, the 
Application Committee members select the best products.
Each chosen company will be provided with a demonstration space (including 
table and chair) free of charge. The space is near the amphitheatre in 
which the scientific papers are presented.
Each company may also be given a special time slot (15 minutes) to give a 
short presentation about the product.
In addition, innovative products chosen for RIAO 2007 will be able to 
present their financial prospects to technology financing specialists 
(venture capital, private equity) that will be specifically invited for 
these presentations.
The general topic of the Call for Applications is:
