Yesterday at the ROMIP workshop in Suzdal twelve of the fourteen planned
presentations were given by the ROMIP'06 participants
in which they told about their results and experiences made during the seminar this year.
This time more than 50 people attended the workshop.
After the official part of the workshop and its host conference
RCDL we led
an informal round-table discussion about the ways of advancing the seminar.
During this two hours discussion we talked about obtaining and
using new data collections for text retrieval evaluation, defining new tracks, lowering the entrance barrier for
new potential participants, improving the website, and a number of other important topics.
