FDIA PhD Symposium

The 10th PhD Symposium on Future Directions in Information Access (FDIA) will be held in conjunction with the ESSIR 2022.

Requirements

No deep previous knowledge on IR or ML is required, but the attendants are assumed to have some basic background on computer science and mathematics.

About us

The European Summer School in Information Retrieval (ESSIR) is held on a regular basis, providing high quality teaching of Information Retrieval (IR) and advanced IR topics to an audience of researchers and research students. The mission of the school is to enable students to learn about modern research challenges and methods in information retrieval and related disciplines; to stimulate scientific research and collaboration in these fields; and to grow a community of researchers, students, and industry professionals working on information retrieval with collaborations all around the world.

 

ESSIR 2022 will be a 5-day event (18-22 July, 2022) that will offer a high quality teaching on IR and related research topics, in a friendly atmosphere. A new edition of the Symposium on Future Directions in Information Access (FDIA) will also be held at ESSIR 2022, which will provide a forum for early researchers to present their research in a friendly environment, whilst among senior researchers.
