We would like to cordially invite you to consider contributing a paper 
to ASIR - held as a part of the Federated Conference on Computer Science 
and Information Systems (FedCSIS 2015).

FedCSIS a yearly international multi-conference organized by the Polish 
Information Processing Society (PTI) in cooperation with the IEEE Region 
8, ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing, European Alliance 
for Innovation, Lodz ACM Chapter, Polish Operational and Systems 
Research Society - POSRS, Eastern Cluster ICT Poland, Mazovia Cluster 
ICT (further technical collaborations will be announced shortly).

Recent advances in semantic technologies form a solid basis for a 
variety of methods and instruments that support multimedia information 
retrieval, knowledge representation, discovery and analysis. They 
influence the way and form of representing documents in the memory of 
computers, approaches to analyze documents, techniques to mine and 
retrieve knowledge. The abundance of video, voice and speech data also 
raises new challenging problems to multimedia information retrieval systems.

We believe that our workshop will facilitate discussions of new research 
results in this area, and will serve as a meeting place for researchers 
from all over the world. Our aim is to create an atmosphere of 
friendship and cooperation for everyone, interested in computational 
linguistics and semantic information retrieval. The ASIR’15 workshop 
will continue to maintain high standards of quality and organization, 
set in the previous years. We welcome all the researchers, interested in 
semantic information retrieval, to join our event.


The workshop addresses semantic information retrieval theory and 
important matters, related to practical Web tools. The topics and areas 
include but not limited to:

- Domain-specific semantic applications.
- Evaluation methodologies for semantic search and retrieval.
- Models for document representation.
- Natural language semantic processing.
- Ontology for semantic information retrieval.
- Ontology alignment, mapping and merging.
- Query interfaces.
- Searching and ranking.
- Semantic multimedia retrieval.
- Visualization of retrieved results.


Papers should be submitted by April 24, 2015. Preprints will be 
published on a USB memory stick provided to the FedCSIS participants. 
Only papers presented during the conference will be submitted to the 
IEEE for inclusion in the Xplore Digital Library. Furthermore, 
proceedings, published in a volume with ISBN and ISSN numbers will 
posted at the conference WWW site. Moreover, most Events' organizers 
arrange quality journals, edited volumes, etc. and may invite selected 
extended and revised papers for post-conference publications 
(information can be found at the websites of individual events).
