  • Contextual ad searching
  • Automatic elicitation of semantic relationships from text and their use for IR
  • Semantic annotation of patent documents and their retrieval
  • Beyond searching and browsing
  • Automatic analysis of trends from text
  • Automatic summarization
  • Cross-language information retrieval
  • Distributed information retrieval
  • Digital libraries with virtual documents
  • Retrieval of structured data (SGML, X-XML, MPEG-7)
