Greetings

We invite you to participate in the 2017 Asia Information Retrieval Societies (AIRS), Nov. 22-24, 2017, at the Lotte Hotel & Resort in Jeju island, Korea. This Conference is the 13th in the series of international conferences on information retrieval that provides a global forum for presentations and information exchange on the latest emerging information technology. We hope you will consider attending and engaging in the event in a variety of ways. Consider arriving early in Jeju island to take advantage of tourist attractions.

The Asia Information Retrieval Societies Conference (AIRS) aims to bring together researchers and developers to exchange new ideas and latest achievements in the field of information retrieval (IR). The scope of the conference covers applications, systems, technologies and theory aspects of information retrieval in text, audio, image, video and multimedia data. The 13th AIRS (AIRS 2017) welcomes submissions of original papers in the broad field of information retrieval.

We believe that it is among our missions to provide the valuable resources in making breakthroughs in the fields. We hope that AIRS 2017 is successful to share ideas on those global issues and further promote international collaborations, while you also enjoy the breathtaking views of Jeju Island!

With best regards,
