ACM SIGIR 2000 WORKSHOP
MATHEMATICAL/FORMAL METHODS IN INFORMATION RETRIEVAL
Athens, Greece, July 28, 2000
The purpose of the workshop is to promote discussion and interaction among those with research interests in mathematical/formal aspects of Information Retrieval: mathematical/formal foundations, descriptions, properties, structures, theory, and applications of Information Retrieval models. We believe that the development of mathematical/formal aspects of Information Retrieval has come to a point where they should be summed, analyzed, weighed and subjected to a scrutiny as to how they can best serve the further development of Information Retrieval.
The workshop aims at being a forum for the presentation of both theoretical and applicative results.

TOPICS OF INTEREST
Contributions (papers, talks) are solicited dealing with, but not necessarily limited to, the following areas:
Multimedia Indexing and Retrieval
where the different entities involved (e.g., documents, queries, indexing, retrieval, relevance, effectiveness, users, etc.) are modeled using any of, but not limited to, the following approaches:
Theory of Computation
Those interested in making a presentation should submit their papers of at most 8 pages by e-mail to the address below, using "MF/IR 2000 Submission" as the e-mail subject line. Please submit the paper in Microsoft Word (or postscript).
Those interested in giving a talk (without paper submission) should submit the title and summary of at most one page.
All submissions should be made by e-mail to the address below, using "MF/IR 2000 Submission" as the e-mail subject line. Please submit the paper in Microsoft Word (or postscript). The format for the paper submission should follow a usual format in IR publishing. We plan to publish all accepted contributions in a special edition of Technology Letters (an international journal published by Buckinghamshire Chilterns University College, UK).
