PROMISE Winter School 2013 "Bridging between Information Retrieval and Databases" - Call for Participation

The PROMISE Winter School 2013 will be held in Bressanone - Italy on 4 - 8 February 2013

The aim of the Promise Winter School on "Bridging between Information Retrieval and Databases" is to give participants a grounding in the core topics that constitute the multidisciplinary area of information access and retrieval to unstructured, semistructured, and structured information.
The idea of the school stems from the observation that nowadays databases are more and more getting into techniques that have traditionally been typical of information retrieval and, viceversa, information retrieval is using more and more database-oriented techniques.

The school mainly targets PhD and Master students but all other researchers or participation from industry is welcome. Some scholarships are available and prices are kept reasonable to allow for a wide participation.
