Call for Participation

Information Retrieval (IR) is the activity of obtaining information resources from information repositories according to users’ information need. The summer schools in Information Retrieval have been very successful in Europe where research students, young faculty members, or industrial researchers can get a great opportunity to learn the core and advanced topics from the world-class experts in the field. However, no such opportunity was available in most Asian countries. Following the success of the 1st Asian Summer School in Information Access (ASSIA 2013), which was held in 2013 at Tsukuba, Japan, we are pleased to announce that the 2nd Asian Summer School in Information Access will be held on August 24-27, 2015 at Taipei City, Taiwan.
