Welcome to Santiago de Compostela! We are pleased to host the 27th Annual EuropeanConferenceonInformationRetrievalResearch(ECIR2005)onits?rst visit to Spain. These proceedings contain the refereed full papers and poster abstracts p- sented at ECIR 2005. This conference was initially established by the Infor- tion Retrieval Specialist Group of the British Computer Society (BCS-IRSG) under the name “Annual Colloquium on Information Retrieval Research. ” The colloquium was held in the United Kingdom each year until 1998, when the event was organized in Grenoble, France. Since then the conference venue has alternated between the United Kingdom and Continental Europe, re?ecting the growing European orientation of ECIR. For the same reason, in 2001 the event was renamed “European Conference on Information Retrieval Research. ” In - cent years, ECIR has continued to grow and has become the major European forum for the discussion of research in the ?eld of information retrieval. ECIR 2005 was held at the Technical School of Engineering of the University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain. In terms of submissions, ECIR 2005 was a record-breaking success, since 124 full papers were submitted in response to the call for papers. This was a sharp increase from the 101 submissions received for ECIR 2003, which was the most successful ECIR in terms of submissions. ECIR 2005 established also a call for posters, and 41 posters where submitted. Paper and poster submissions were received from across Europe and further a?eld, including North America, South America, Asia and Australia, which is a clear indicationofthegrowingpopularityandreputationoftheconference.

ECIR is theannualconferenceoftheBritishComputerSociety’sspecialistgroupinInf- mation Retrieval. This year the conference was held at the School of Computing and Technology at the University of Sunderland. ECIR began life as the - nual Colloquium on Information Retrieval Research. The colloquium was held in the UK each year until 1998 when the event was held in Grenoble, France. Since then the conference venue has alternated between the United Kingdom and Continental Europe, and the event was renamed the European Conference on Information Retrieval. In recent years, ECIR has continued to grow and has become the major European forum for the discussion of research in the ?eld of Information Retrieval. To mark this metamorphosis from a small informal c- loquium to a major event in the IR research calendar, the BCS-IRSG decided to rename the event to the European Conference on Information Retrieval.

Out of the 88 submitted papers, 28 were accepted for presentation. All papers were reviewed by at least three reviewers.

These proceedings contain the refereed papers and posters presented at the S- ond International Conference on the Theory of Information Retrieval (ICTIR 2009), held at Microsoft Research in Cambridge, UK, September 10-11, 2009. This biennial international conference provides an opportunity for the p- sentation of the latest work describing theoretical advances in the ?eld of inf- mation retrieval (IR). The ?rst ICTIR was held in Budapest in October 2007, organizedby Keith van Rijsbergen, Sa ́ndor Dominich, S ́ andor Daran ́ yi, and F- enc Kiss. ICTIR was brought about by the growing interest in the consecutive workshops run at ACM SIGIR each year from 2000 until 2005 on Mathematical and Formal Methods in IR (Athens, Greece, 2000; New Orleans, USA, 2001; Tampere, Finland, 2002; Toronto, Canada, 2003; She?eld, UK, 2004; Salvador, Brazil, 2005). This sustained initiative was in a large part down to the det- mination of San ́ dor Dominich and his passion for all things good, formal and mathematical. The foundation and the success of ICTIR is a direct result of his commitment and dedication to fostering research and development into the theoretical underpinnings of IR. His dedication is epitomized by his two books on the subject: Mathematical Foundations in Information Retrieval published in 2001, and The Modern Algebra of Information Retrieval published in 2008.

The Center for Intelligent Information Retrieval (CIIR) was formed in the Computer Science Department ofthe University ofMassachusetts, Amherst in 1992. The core support for the Center came from a National Science Foun- tion State/Industry/University Cooperative Research Center(S/IUCRC) grant, although there had been a sizeable information retrieval (IR) research group for over 10 years prior to that grant. Thebasic goal ofthese Centers is to combine basic research, applied research, and technology transfer. The CIIR has been successful in each of these areas, in that it has produced over 270 research papers, has been involved in many successful government and industry collaborations, and has had a significant role in high-visibility Internet sites and start-ups. As a result of these efforts, the CIIR has become known internationally as one of the leading research groups in the area of information retrieval. The CIIR focuses on research that results in more effective and efficient access and discovery in large, heterogeneous, distributed, text and multimedia databases. The scope of the work that is done in the CIIR is broad and goes significantly beyond “traditional” areas of information retrieval such as retrieval models, cross-lingual search, and automatic query expansion. The research includes both low-level systems issues such as the design of protocols and architectures for distributed search, as well as more human-centered topics such as user interface design, visualization and data mining with text, and multimedia retrieval.
