The RIAO conferences are meeting places for
scientific and industrial specialists in information retrieval. There are sites
for presentations of both high-level peer-reviewed scientific research and
prototypes and of innovative products, selected by a special Call for
Applications. This present Call for Application has been sent at the same time
that the Call for Papers for the RIAO 2010 Conference. The products presented
are chosen uniquely on the basis of their innovativeness in the area of the

d'Informatique Documentaire" (C.I.D.) organizes the RIAO conferences every three
years since 1985. RIAO stands for "Recherche d'Information Assistee par
Ordinateur", i.e. computer aided Information search.
RIAO conferences have
two selection committees: a Program Committee for scientific papers, and an
Applications Committee which seeks out and selects those innovative products for
The RIAO conferences are not trade shows since the teams
presenting innovative applications are selected and do not pay for the booth and
