The first Industry Event is proud to announce an excellent preliminary programme of speakers.

  • Omar Alonso from SAP discusses sensemaking in the enterprise, where the Orcatec LCC speaker presents on legal discovery and litigation support.
  • Hugh Williams from Microsoft and Byron Dom from Yahoo! will discuss topics in search for end-users.
  • Vertical search is treated by Thomas Mandl, who assesses 54 website search applications, while Craig Scott from Elsevier Scirus explains how web data has been integrated within Scopus.
  • Daniel Tunkelang from Endeca puts the user experience in the spotlight, where Fredhopper's Ronny Roeller dives into search result relevancy beyond linguistics for e-commerce.
  • Collexis speaks on linguistic analysis appplied in practical cases in the language technology session, and Jakub Zavrel from Textkernel will talk on information extraction and web mining.
  • Our practitioner's panel discusses with the audience their challenges in applying search solutions.

We expect to finalize the programme with more contributions on mobile search, web search and e-commerce.

The event combines limited attendance from mixed backgrounds (industry, practitioners and academics) with the time in breaks, lunch and a closing reception to create the right atmosphere for networking with fellow delegates and presenters.
