TEXT MINING AND INFORMATION RETRIEVAL

Special issue of the Canadian Journal of Information and Library Science

GUEST EDITORS

- Dominic Forest (Université de Montréal, Canada)
- Lyne Da Sylva (Université de Montréal, Canada)

THEME

The guest editors of this special issue of the Canadian Journal of
Information and Library Science invite original research from all
disciplines reporting on various aspects of the integration of text mining
techniques within information retrieval applications. This includes, but is
not limited to:

- developing text mining strategies within an information retrieval context
- evaluating text mining operations for information retrieval
- identifying contexts for text mining (thematic analysis, management of
digital libraries, information extraction and visualization, knowledge
extraction, cross-linguistic information retrieval, etc.)

Text mining approaches described in the papers may be based on numerical or
linguistic techniques, or both. Special attention should be given to the
description and evaluation of the information retrieval system where the
text mining techniques are embedded, where applicable. Applications
described in the papers can be academic prototypes or commercial software.

Manuscripts will undergo the normal double-blind review process for
submissions to CJILS.

Numéro thématique de la Revue canadienne des sciences de l'information et de
bibliothéconomie

RÉDACTEURS INVITÉS

- Dominic Forest (Université de Montréal, Canada)
- Lyne Da Sylva (Université de Montréal, Canada)

THÈME

Les rédacteurs invités de ce numéro thématique de la Revue canadienne des
sciences de l'information et de bibliothéconomie invitent les chercheurs
provenant de différentes disciplines à soumettre les résultats de travaux de
recherche originaux traitant de l'intégration de techniques de fouille de
textes dans un contexte de recherche d'informations. Ce thème inclut, sans
pour autant s'y limiter, les aspects suivants :

- l'évaluation de la pertinence des différentes opérations de fouille de
textes pour la recherche d'informations
- le développement de méthodologies de fouille de textes à l'intérieur du
processus de recherche d'informations
- l'identification de contextes d'utilisation d'outils de fouille de textes
(analyse thématique, bibliothèques numériques, extraction et visualisation
des connaissances, recherche multilingue, etc.)

Les techniques de fouille de textes qui seront décrites dans les
contributions pourront être de nature aussi bien numérique que linguistique
ou hybride. Une attention particulière devrait être accordée à la
description et à l'évaluation du système de recherche intégrant les
techniques de fouille de textes, le cas échéant. Par ailleurs, les
applications de recherche d'informations, ainsi que celles de fouille de
textes mises à contribution, peuvent être tant des prototypes académiques
que des applications destinées à des utilisations commerciales.

Les propositions reçues feront l'objet d'une évaluation anonyme par des
pairs selon les modalités normales d'évaluation de la Revue canadienne des
sciences de l'information et de bibliothéconomie.

        Subject: Lecture by Dot Porter in Dublin, 26 January


The DHO announces an upcoming presentation by DHO Metadata Manager Dot Porter entitled 'Reading, Writing, Building: the Old English Illustrated Hexateuch'. The lecture is presented as part of the Culture and Technology Seminar Series organized by Humanities Advanced Technology And Information Institute (HATII) at the University of Glasgow, and will be simultaneously webcast. Ms. Porter holds an MA from the Medieval Institute at Western Michigan University and has worked on several digital editing projects of medieval manuscripts.

Date: 26 January 2009, 15:00-16:00
Venue: Royal Irish Academy, 19 Dawson Street, Dublin 2

Abstract:

In recent years there has been a growth amongst humanities scholars in the interest in the materiality of objects including manuscripts, printed books, and inscribed stones, as they relate to the text inscribed upon them and contained within them. This interest has shown itself in the digital humanities as well, as scholars explore how computers might be made to express the physical in the digital. This may take many forms, including 2D images, 3D images or scans, or textual descriptions of objects.

This presentation will explore how digital elements describing, expressing, or representing different aspects of a single physical object might be used to study the creation of that object. The focus will be on a manuscript commonly known as the Old English Illustrated Hexateuch (BL Cotton Claudius B.iv.), an Old English translation of the first six books of the Old Testament that includes over 400 color illustrations. In his recent book The Illustrated Old English Hexateuch, Cotton Claudius B.iv: The Frontier of Seeing and Reading in Anglo-Saxon England (British Library Press, 2007), Benjamin Withers describes a theory for how the relationship between the images and text prescribed both the layout of the content and the physical construction of the entire manuscript. How might Withers' theory be expressed, visualized, or tested in a digital environment? This presentation is intended to be the start of a conversation, rather than the answer to a very complex and wide-ranging question.

About the conference:

The Public Knowledge Project is pleased to announce that the second  
international PKP conference will be held from July 8 - 10, 2009 in  
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The first PKP conference was an  
overwhelming success with presentations and participants from around  
the world. A selected set of conference papers was subsequently  
published in the October 2007 issue of First Monday.

The conference will appeal not just to members of the PKP community,  
but to anyone interested in trends and developments for scholarly  
publishing and communication. There will be a wide range of topical  
sessions on new reading and publishing technologies; open access  
initiatives; alternative publishing and funding models; national and  
international collaborative projects; new roles and partnerships for  
libraries, scholarly publishers and others; and sustainability for  
open access publishing and open source software. Prospective and  
first time users of OJS and other PKP software will be able to learn  
more about the systems and establish contacts with the PKP community.  
Experienced implementers, developers, and system administrators will  
have an opportunity to participate in technical sessions and exchange  
information.

The conference will commence with an opening keynote session on the  
evening of July 8 convened by John Willinsky, the founder of the  
Public Knowledge Project. There will be several pre-conference  
workshops on July 8, and the main conference program will present a  
combination of concurrent and single track sessions during on July 9  
and 10. The conference will conclude with three special symposia on  
community and network building intended for each of the core PKP  
constituents: journal editors and publishers; librarians; and  
software developers.

The conference will be hosted at Simon Fraser University's downtown  
campus and will be adjacent to a wide range of accommodations,  
restaurants, and other popular tourist destinations. Please mark the  
July 8 - 10 dates on your 2009 calendars. The PKP partners look  
forward to welcoming you to the second PKP conference.
