First Workshop on Personalised Multilingual Hypertext Retrieval (PMHR 2011)

The PMHR 2011 workshop is held in conjunction with the ACM Hypertext 2011 (HT2011) Conference.

The aims of this workshop are twofold:

  1. to set the scene in this challenging area, allowing the different communities engaged in related research topics to meet and to determine a program of actions to undertake
  2. to set up a strategy to follow for the evaluation of PMHR systems, so to define the collection of hypertext documents to use to evaluate such type of systems together with the metrics to use.

Important Dates

  • Deadline for submission: 4th April 2011
  • Notification of acceptance: 30th April 2011
  • Early registration deadline: 8th May 2011
  • Revised version of papers: 9th May 2011
  • Workshop: 6th June 2011

PROMISE: Participative Research labOratory for Multimedia and Multilingual Information Systems Evaluation

Large-scale worldwide experimental evaluations provide fundamental contributions to the advancement of state-of-the-art techniques through common evaluation procedures, regular and systematic evaluation cycles, comparison and benchmarking of the adopted approaches, and spreading of knowledge. In the process, vast amounts of experimental data are generated that beg for analysis tools to enable interpretation and thereby facilitate scientific and technological progress.

PROMISE will provide a virtual laboratory for conducting participative research and experimentation to carry out, advance and bring automation into the evaluation and benchmarking of such complex information systems, by facilitating management and offering access, curation, preservation, re-use, analysis, visualization, and mining of the collected experimental data. PROMISE will:

  • foster the adoption of regular experimental evaluation activities;
  • bring automation into the experimental evaluation process;
  • promotecollaboration and re-use over the acquired knowledge-base;
  • stimulate knowledge transfer and uptake.

Europe is unique: a powerful economic community that politically and culturally strives for equality in its languages and an appreciation of diversity in its citizens. New Internet paradigms are continually extending the media and the task where multiple language based interaction must be supported. PROMISE will direct a world-wide research community to track these changes and deliver solutions so that Europe can achieve one of its most cherished goals.
