This one-day workshop focuses on the current challenges in automated indexing and text retrieval with particular emphasis on the development of future mathematical algorithms and software. Preceding the Seventh SIAM Conference on Applied Linear Algebra (LAOO), this workshop will address the roles applied mathematicians and computer scientists can play in the design of future information retrieval (IR) systems.
