Aims and scope

Objectifs de la revue

The diversity in forms of documents (multimedia, multilingual, with or without a structure) and in their uses encourages different communities to mingle more and more.


Information Retrieval, Document and Semantic Web is a meeting point for these scientific or industrial communities who are interested in information research, the semantic web, the analysis of documents (texts, images, sounds, videos, etc.) or in the collection of documents.

La multiplicité des formes de documents (multimédia, multilingue, structuré ou non) et des usages favorise de plus en plus un brassage entre différentes communautés.

Recherche d’information, document et web sémantique est un point de rencontre pour ces communautés scientifiques ou industrielles qui s’intéressent à la recherche d’information, au web sémantique, à l’analyse de documents (textes, images, sons, vidéos...) ou à la collection de documents.
