The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers on the application of intelligent systems to Information Access in an informal setting to promote discussion and the cross fertilisation of ideas and methods. Position statements and reviews of current research are encouraged, as well as new research work.

The workshop will consist of three days of talks, panels, informal breakout sessions, and a boat trip to local Helsinki islands. The number of workshop attendants is limited with a preference given to authors and presenters of contributed papers, and to a number of invited speakers chosen among the top experts of this field. Currently on the invited list is Fernando Pereira, University of Pennsylvania, Soumen Chakrabarti, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, and Doug Cutting of Nutch and Lucene.
