CLEF 2010 Conference on Multilingual and Multimodal Information Access Evaluation

The CLEF 2010 conference is the continuation of the popular CLEF campaigns and workshops that have run for the past ten years (2000-2009). CLEF 2010 will cover a broad range of issues from the fields of multilingual and multimodal information access evaluation.

CLEF 2010 will consist of two parts, of two days each. One part will be devoted to presentations of papers on all aspects of the evaluation of information access systems.

The other two-day part of CLEF 2010 will be devoted to a series of "labs". Two different forms of labs will be offered: labs can either be run "campaign-style" during the twelve month period preceding the conference, or adopt a more "workshop"-style format that can explore issues of information access evaluation and related fields. The labs will culminate in sessions of a half-day, one full day or two days at the CLEF 2010 conference.

CLEF 2010 will take place in Padua, Italy, during the third week of September 2010. More information about the CLEF 2010 Call for Lab proposals is available here. The call for papers will be launched soon (October 2009).
