    Fourth BCS-IRSG Symposium on Future Directions in Information Access (FDIA 2011)

    31 August 2011, Koblenz, Germany

    In 2007, the first BCS-IRSG Symposium on Future Directions in Information Access (FDIA) was established to provide a forum for early career researchers to present, share and discuss research, which is at a more formative or tentative stage. The symposium was run in conjunction with the 6th European Summer School in Information Retrieval (ESSIR) which was held in Glasgow. The second symposium was held in London, UK in September, 2008 collocated with Search Solutions, while the third symposium was again collocated with ESSIR in Padua, Italy. Now in its fourth year, the 2011 Future Directions in Information Access Symposium was held as part of the 8th European Summer School in Information Retrieval.
