Abstract:

The Information Retrieval Workshop was held on the 22nd of October, 2004 at the IEEE Teachers Building in St Enoch’s Centre, Glasgow. The event attracted over thirty Information Retrieval Researchers from the University of Glasgow and the University of Strathclyde, comprising of Academic Staff, Research Assistants and PhD Students. During the course of the workshop 19 presentations were given by various members of the IR groups; nine from Glasgow and ten from Strathclyde. The presentations provided an opportunity for participants to share their current research interests with the local IR community and to see where commonilaties existed to develop collaborative research endeavours. Delivery of the presentations was restricted to only five minutes and coupled with discussion panels to elaborate on the themes of the session. A by product of the format was interactive and engaging sessions which resulted in a greater awareness of the current research from which future work could be established by utilising the skills and knowledge within the local community. These proceedings contain the main content presented during the workshop and serve as a brief overview of Information Retrieval research in the Glasgow area. Several potential collaborations are being investigated as a result of this workshop and another similar event between the two groups is going to be organised for next year.
