Information retrieval is a challenging process. Increasingly information
is sought from collections with multiple media and genres using multiple
modalities and languages. A number of factors affect the retrieval
process such as query formulation, matching process and result
presentation. However, the importance of context in the retrieval
process has been identified. Adaptive retrieval, a process in which the
search process is adapted towards the user needs/context, has become
more and more important.

As a continuation of the successful workshop in 2006, we are organizing
the Second International Workshop on Adaptive Information Retrieval in
conjunction with the IIiX 2008 conference. The workshop will be revolved
around the following themes:

Adaptive retrieval models
Adaptive result presentation
Adaptive user modeling
Context modelling
Interactive multimedia retrieval
Test collection building for the evaluation of adaptive systems

The workshop focuses especially on researchers who have interest in
context sensitive retrieval, personalization systems, adaptive retrieval
models, implicit feedback systems, test collection building for
interactive evaluation, interactive and adaptive multimedia retrieval
and evaluation methodologies. The workshop will be held on the Saturday,
18th October 2008 immediately after the IIiX 2008 conference.

We are soliciting position papers from researchers who are interested in
adaptive retrieval systems and specifically on issues related to the
above themes.

Papers should be limited up to 4 pages in Springer LNCS format. All
papers will be peer reviewed by the organisers. Submitting a paper to
the workshop means that if the paper is accepted, at least one author
should register to AIR 2008 and attend the workshop to present the
