Matrixware information services is SIGIR's new silver sponsor.

Founded in Vienna in 2005, Matrixware, currently employs 25 people. A team consisting of computer scientists, mathematicians, linguists and other specialists is developing cutting-edge solutions for the field of intellectual property research. For the first time, new indexing technologies facilitate automatization of large parts of the information retrieval process, from data processing to information extraction in both structured and unstructured documents. A pilot study in cooperation with the European Patent Organisation (EPO) found a significant reduction in labour can be achieved by using automated processes. Furthermore, the adoption of recent insights from the field of computational linguistics enables the introduction of new functions and services. For her pioneer achievements in this area, Matrixware has been granted substantial funding from the Austrian Ministry of Science in 2005.
