Information retrieval is a challenging process. Increasingly information is sought from collections with multiple media and genres using multiple modalities and languages. A number of factors affect the retrieval process such as query formulation, matching process and result presentation. However, the importance of context in the retrieval process has been identified. Adaptive retrieval, a process in which the search process is adapted towards the user needs/context, has become more and more important.

We are organising an international workshop on adaptive information retrieval. The workshop will be revolved around the following themes:

The workshop focuses especially on researchers who have interest in context sensitive retrieval, personalization systems, adaptive retrieval models, implicit feedback systems, test collection building for interactive evaluation, interactive and adaptive multimedia retrieval and evaluation methodologies.
