We've already received some good submissions via KMWorld, but this is for search in particular

Enterprise Search Summit, Fall 2010: Call for Presentations

The blurb:

Search technology can pay off in big ways, but only if the implementation is firmly focused on user information needs. When search crosses boundaries and provides access to relevant information regardless of domain, it helps the enterprise network become more than the sum of its parts, but getting to that level requires a significant investment. Specific solutions can pioneer the way, solving high profile problems with scalable tools, and then incrementally expanding to make additional silos searchable. Whether applied in an international corporation, government agency, or complex web catalog, search technology is just a means to the true goal of supporting actions and decisions.
The Enterprise Search Summit is a forum to share lessons learned from successes, but also from failures; to recognize approaches which return good value for the investment of money and resources; and to evaluate promising new technologies. Presenters in this conference are implementing enterprise-level search in corporations, governmental departments, public catalogs, and even e-commerce sites.

Pre-conference workshops will offer an introduction to all aspects of enterprise search, including the indexing pipeline, query processing, recall, precision and relevance, user interface, scaling both content and traffic, federated search, analytics and more.

To Submit a Presentation

Enterprise Search Summit, Fall 2011 invites search engine practitioner of all kinds to submit proposals. Submit online only: http://www.enterprisesearchsummit.com/Fall2011/Proposal.aspx.

The deadline for submission is April 16, 2011; during the review process we may ask for presentation outlines and examples of previous sessions. We will send acceptance and declination notices by June.

Avi Rappoport, (the new Program Chair of ESS Fall, 2011) specifically encourages search administrators to submit proposals for presentations based on case studies, research, and practical experience. Proposals can include all aspects of enterprise search: strategic, technical, cultural, financial, and managerial.

We are interested in adding more interactivity and audience participation, so we may redesign some topics from pure lecture mode to round-tables, seminars, challenges, quizzes, and other forms of community discussion. We are very interested in proposals which deprecate PowerPoint in favor conversational approaches.

New topics we would particularly like to see included:

Scaling and distributing search to handle millions of documents and thousands of queries per minute

Indexing pipeline tools and processes, including both proprietary solutions and new initiatives such as OpenPipeline, Pypes, IUMA and ManifoldCF.

Can SaaS cloud-hosted search work in the enterprise, or is the exposure too much for comfort? What’s scarier about search than CRM?

What can new semantic technologies add to search? Where is the return on investment most clear?

UX and usability, making best use of new interface elements such as autocomplete and AJAX.

Mobile search - is it a UI problem only?

Standard federated search languages such as RSW, OAI and OpenSearch, with special emphasis on security and authentication.

Most effective ways of integrating search on images, audio, and video files.

Who should own search in the enterprise? What is the right level of investment in search projects and ongoing maintenance?


Thank you and we look forward to seeing your proposal!

I think this is a Really Good Thing, and the Judge agrees, saying that the settlement went way too far planning

"to implement a forward-looking business arrangement that would grant Google significant rights to exploit entire books, without permission of the copyright owners. Indeed, the ASA would give Google a significant advantage over competitors, rewarding it for engaging in wholesale copying of copyrighted works without permission, while releasing claims well beyond those presented in the case.”

"OPINION: In the end, I conclude that the ASA is not fair, adequate, and reasonable."

  • boilerpipe - removes clutter around web page content (java code library)

    The boilerpipe library provides algorithms to detect and remove the surplus "clutter" (boilerplate, templates) around the main textual content of a web page. The library already provides specific strategies for common tasks (for example: news article extraction) and may also be easily extended for individual problem settings. Extracting content is very fast (milliseconds), just needs the input document (no global or site-level information required) and is usually quite accurate. Boilerpipe is a Java library written by Christian Kohlschütter. It is released under the Apache License 2.0. The algorithms used by the library are based on (and extending) some concepts of the paper "Boilerplate Detection using Shallow Text Features" by Christian Kohlschütter et al., presented at WSDM 2010 -- The Third ACM International Conference on Web Search and Data Mining New York City, NY USA. Click here to read the paper and the presentation slides. A video of the presentation is freely available on Videolectures.net (turn speaker balance to the left to improve audio quality). Commercial support is available through Kohlschütter Search Intelligence.

  • What makes relevance such a challenge in the enterprise? (sharepoint & fast search blog)

    Nice overview of why internal search is often worse than web search: mainly that there's little meaningful linking within an intranet, little incentive to make a site easily searchable, and security issues with access control.  The post recommends realistic expectations, not indexing low-value content, looking at third-party relevance tools, offering scope or zoned search, and tagging content.

  • HTML5 specification, w3

    Complex and difficult to read, though I can tell they're trying to make it easier.

    tags: site-search web-search research

  • HTML5 - A Step Forward Towards Semantic Web

    Nice introduction to the new structural tags in HTML5: section, article, aside, header, hgroup, footer, and nav, and new content tags: figure, video, audio, canvas.
