Some updates.

- William Webber, Mark Sanderson and I have started
discussing EVIA 2010 (June 15, 2010, NII, Tokyo).
Will form a Program Committee soon.

- The next AIRS is going to be a full CONFERENCE rather than a symposium:
Asia Information Retrieval Societies (AIRS) conference.
AIRS 2010 will be hosted by National Taiwan University, Taipei.

- IPSJ SIG-IFAT (information fundamentals and access technologies)
will be one of the "AIR societies" mentioned above.
The IFAT membership fee for next year is going to be 3,150JPY.
(Up 210JPY from this year, but still it's very cheap!)
Please join IFAT!

  1. Hmm, I'm intrigued by this idea of AIR societies. I note that ECIR is similarly sponsored by the BCS IR specialist group. We've don't have anything similar in Austral(as)ia; we've got an ACS, but they don't have research specialist groups.
