                       FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS

The 2nd BCS IRSG Symposium: Future Directions in Information Access 2008 (FDIA 2008)
                  London, UK, September 22, 2008


At the first symposium held last year, the aim was to provide a forum where future directions of information access can be presented and discussed in an open and friendly environment. The focus of the 2nd Symposium on Future Directions in Information Access will be to continue this theme by dedicating an entire day to the discussion and promotion of such research in a fun, entertaining and exciting way.

Why future directions,, because we want to encourage submission that focus on the early research such as pilot studies, presenting challenges and future opportunities, conceptual and theoretical work, and the contributions from doctoral work.

Why Information Access, because it captures the broader ideas of information retrieval, storage and management to include interaction and usage.

The objectives of the IRSG FDIA Symposium are:
 * To provide an accessible forum for new researchers to share and discuss their research and projects:
particularly PhD students, researchers new to the field, and post doctoral researchers
* To help foster formative and tentative research ideas.
* To encourage discussion and successful progression.
* To share outcomes of doctoral work.

This symposium calls for research papers to be submitted on topics about Information Access. We especially encourage early research which presents initial work that survey and present future challenges and opportunities, present pilot studies, explore conceptual or theoretical models, etc.

Submission focusing on new directions and emerging work in Information Access/Retrieval which create discussion and provoke reaction are strongly encouraged. Submissions should provide the necessary background and motivation of the topic, so as to maximize the benefit to the author and fellow participants.

A paper should aim to include the following:
    * Motivation for the research
    * Background and related work (with key references)
    * Particular issues highlighted for discussion and main research questions/challenges

A paper may also wish to include:
    * Description of proposed or performed research
    * Outline of Conceptual/Theoretical Models
    * Research methodology and experiments

Areas of research include, but are not limited to:
Information Retrieval
Human Computer Interaction
Multimedia and Multimodal
Knowledge Management
Bio, Chemo, Med, Eco, etc. Informatics

All papers will be peer reviewed by at least one senior researchers on the Programme Committee. Papers should be around 4-8 pages in length in eWics Format using the Word or Latex templates (submitted in PDF).
