The PROMISE network of excellence organized a two-day brainstorming workshop to discuss and envisage future directions and perspectives for the evaluation of information access and retrieval systems in multiple languages and multiple media.

Twenty-five researchers from ten European countries attended the event, covering many different research areas including information retrieval, information extraction, natural language processing, human-computer interaction, semantic technologies, information visualization and visual analytics and system architectures.

The ultimate goal of the PROMISE retreat is to stimulate and involve the research community along the identified research lines, gathering feedback and improving them, and to provide funding agencies with effective and scientifically sound ideas for coordinating and supporting information access research.
