October 25, 2017

Congratulations to ADS Director Professor Maarten de Rijke (Informatics Institute, UvA) who received the Tony Kent Strix Award in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the field of information retrieval in its widest sense. The Award was presented to him in London on Friday 20 October 2017.

Professor de Rijke is a well-known and highly respected member of the international information retrieval community having made considerable and widely recognised contributions to the field. He has an impressive and formidable high impact publications record in a range of areas including semantic search, semi-structured retrieval and social media. He has produced influential research outputs on the large-scale semantic analysis of online content and on the analysis of subjective aspects of information (sentiment, credibility, memory, reputation and experiences). His contributions to information retrieval, in particular to the fast evolving areas of computational methods for analysing, understanding and enabling effective human interaction with information sources, have been profound.
