The Third International Workshop on Evaluating Information Access
(EVIA 2010), a Satellite Workshop of NTCIR-8
http://research.nii.ac.jp/ntcir/ntcir-ws8/EVIA-2010/

June 15, 2010 at NII, Tokyo, Japan.
*****************************************************************

Information Access technologies provide the interface between
human information needs and digital information resources.  The
reliable evaluation of these technologies has been recognized for
decades as central to the advancement of the field.  As information
retrieval becomes more pervasive, the forms of retrieval
more diverse, and retrieval tools richer, the importance of
effective, efficient, and innovative evaluation grows as well.
In recognition of the need for a forum dedicated to the intensive
discussion of evaluation issues, we have held two successful
International Workshops on Evaluating Information Access (EVIA
2007 and 2008).  Proceedings and reports can be found below:

Following these successes, we are happy to announce the Third
International Workshop on Evaluating Information Access (EVIA
2010) on June 15, 2010 (coinciding with Day 1 of the NTCIR-8
Workshop Meeting) at the National Institute of Informatics (NII),
Tokyo, Japan.  We invite papers addressing one or more of the
following topics:

- Test collection formation, evaluation metrics, and evaluation
   environments
- Statistical issues in retrieval evaluation
- User studies and the evaluation of human-computer interaction
   in information retrieval (HCIR)
- Evaluation methods for multilingual, multimedia, or mobile
   information access
- Novel information access tasks and their evaluation
- Evaluation and assessment using implicit user feedback,
   crowdsourcing, living labs, or inferential methods
- Evaluation issues in industrial and enterprise retrieval
   systems

*** SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS ***

Submissions will be subject to double-blind reviewing.  Accepted
papers will be included in the EVIA 2010 online proceedings, and
summarized in a report to SIGIR Forum.
