This second edition provides a systematic introduction to the work and views of the emerging patent-search research and innovation communities as well as an overview of what has been achieved and, perhaps even more importantly, of what remains to be achieved. It revises many of the contributions of the first edition and adds a significant number of new ones. The first part “Introduction to Patent Searching” includes two overview chapters on the peculiarities of patent searching and on contemporary search technology respectively, and thus sets the scene for the subsequent parts. The second part on “Evaluating Patent Retrieval” then begins with two chapters dedicated to patent evaluation campaigns, followed by two chapters discussing complementary issues from the perspective of patent searchers and from the perspective of related domains, notably legal search. “High Recall Search” includes four completely new chapters dealing with the issue of finding only the relevant documents in a reasonable time span. The last (and with six papers the largest) part on “Special Topics in Patent Information Retrieval” covers a large spectrum of research in the patent field, from classification and image processing to translation. Lastly, the book is completed by an outlook on open issues and future research. Several of the chapters have been jointly written by intellectual property and information retrieval experts. However, members of both communities with a background different to that of the primary author have reviewed the chapters, making the book accessible to both the patent search community and to the information retrieval research community. It also not only offers the latest findings for academic researchers, but is also a valuable resource for IP professionals wanting to learn about current IR approaches in the patent domain.

This book constitutes the proceedings of the 37th European Conference on IR Research, ECIR 2015, held in Vienna, Austria, in March/April 2015. The 44 full papers, 41 poster papers and 7 demonstrations presented together with 3 keynotes in this volume were carefully reviewed and selected from 305 submissions. The focus of the papers were on following topics: aggregated search and diversity, classification, cross-lingual and discourse, efficiency, evaluation, event mining and summarisation, information extraction, recommender systems, semantic and graph-based models, sentiment and opinion, social media, specific search tasks, temporal models and features, topic and document models, user behavior and reproducible IR.

Auf Basis der semantischen Patentanalyse entwickelt Frank Passing ein Verfahren für die Messung von Technologiekonvergenz, um Entscheidungsträger, Strategen und Analysten in Unternehmen frühzeitig Indikatoren für den technologischen Wandel an die Hand zu geben. Die Anwendung des Verfahrens erweist sich, insbesondere im Zeitalter der Digitalisierung, als nützlich, da das Phänomen der Technologiekonvergenz weitreichende Auswirkungen auf Innovationen, Wettbewerber und das Umfeld eines Unternehmens haben kann.

This State-of-the-Art Survey constitutes the Final Publication of the COST Action IC1002 on Multilingual and Multifaceted Interactive Information Access, MUMIA. It contains outstanding research, recent developments and new directions in all related aspects of multifaceted and interactive information access with a focus on professional and enterprise search. The contributions are grouped in the following three parts: frameworks, models and theory; tools, applications and practice; and patent search. The Intellectual Property (IP) domain is used through the book as a primary case study. The book aims to bring together material which has been published in a fragmentary way in journals and conference papers into a coherent whole but also present novel, unpublished work where appropriate.

The research domains of information retrieval and databases have traditionally adopted different approaches to information management. However, in recent years, there has been an increasing cross-fertilization among the two fields and now many research challenges are transversal to them. With this in mind, a winter school was organized in Bressanone, Italy, in February 2013, within the context of the EU-funded research project PROMISE (Participative Research Laboratory for Multimedia and Multilingual Information Systems Evaluation). PROMISE aimed at advancing the experimental evaluation of complex multimedia and multilingual information systems in order to support individuals, commercial entities and communities, who design, develop, employ and improve such complex systems. The overall goal of PROMISE was to deliver a unified environment collecting data, knowledge, tools and methodologies and to help the user community involved in experimental evaluation. This book constitutes the outcome of the PROMISE Winter School 2013 and contains 9 invited lectures from the research domains of information retrieval and databases plus short papers of the best student poster awards. A large variety of topics are covered, including databases, information retrieval, experimental evaluation, metrics and statistics, semantic search, keyword search in databases, semi-structured search, evaluation both in information retrieval and databases, crowdsourcing and social media.

This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed postproceedings of the Second International Workshop on Semantic Web and Databases, SWDB 2004, held in Toronto, Canada in August 2004 as a satellite workshop of VLDB 2004. The 14 revised full papers presented together with 2 papers by the invited keynote speakers were carefully selected during two rounds of reviewing and improvement from 47 submissions. Among the topics addressed are data semantics, semantic Web services, service-oriented computing, workflow composition, XML semantics, relational tables, ontologies, semantic Web algebra, heterogeneous data sources, context mediation, OWL, ontology engineering, data integration, semantic Web queries, database queries, and peer-to-peer warehouses.
