Information Filtering and Retrieval.
DART 2014: Revised and Invited Papers.

C. Lai, A. Giuliani and G. Semeraro (eds.).



The book will be published by Springer Verlag in the series Studies in Computational Intelligence (Series Ed.: Kacprzyk, Janusz, ISSN: 1860-949X, http://www.springer.com/series/7092) and will contain revised versions of selected accepted papers to DART 2014 combined with further selected papers.

With the increasing availability of data, it becomes more important to have automatic methods to manage data and retrieve information. Data processing, especially in the era of Social Media, is changing users behaviors. Users are ever more interested in information rather than in mere raw data. Considering that the large amount of accessible data sources is growing, novel systems providing effective means of searching and retrieving information are required. Therefore the fundamental goal is making information exploitable by humans and machines.

This book will be focused on research and study on new challenges and emerging ideas in distributed information filtering and retrieval. In particular, it will accept submissions that investigate novel systems and tools suitable for distributed scenarios and environments.

The book aims at contributing to discuss and compare suitable novel solutions based on intelligent techniques and applied in real-world domains.

Expressions of interest must be sent through easychair .
