****************************************************************************

Nowadays users are more and more interested in information rather than in
mere raw data. The huge amount of accessible data sources is growing
rapidly. This calls for novel systems providing effective means of searching
and retrieving information with the fundamental goal of making it
exploitable by humans and machines.
DART focuses on researching and studying new challenges in distributed
information filtering and retrieval. In particular, DART aims to investigate
novel systems and tools to distributed scenarios and environments. DART will
contribute to discuss and compare suitable novel solutions based on
intelligent techniques and applied in real-world applications.
Information Retrieval attempts to address similar filtering and ranking
problems for pieces of information such as links, pages, and documents. 
Information Retrieval systems generally focus on the development of global
retrieval techniques, often neglecting individual user needs and
preferences.
Information Filtering has drastically changed the way information seekers
find what they are searching for. In fact, they effectively prune large
information spaces and help users in selecting items that best meet their
needs, interests, preferences, and tastes. These systems rely strongly on
the use of various machine learning tools and algorithms for learning how to
rank items and predict user evaluation.



**************
SUBMISSIONS
**************

DART 2012 is aimed at putting together practitioners and researchers working
on pervasive and intelligent access to distributed information, multimedia,
and web services.

Authors should submit an original paper in English, carefully checked for
correct grammar and spelling, using the on-line submission procedure. The
submission must have up to 13 pages otherwise it will be rejected without
review. Please check the paper formats page so you may be aware of the
accepted paper page limits.
The guidelines for paper formatting provided at the conference web ought to
be used for all submitted papers. The preferred submission format is the
same as the camera-ready format. Please check and carefully follow the
instructions and templates provided. Each paper should clearly indicate the
nature of its technical/scientific contribution, and the problems, domains
or environments to which it is applicable.

Papers that are out of the workshop scope or contain any form of plagiarism
will be rejected without reviews. Please read INSTICC's ethical norms
regarding plagiarism and self-plagiarism
(http://www.kdir.ic3k.org/NormsPlagiarism.aspx).

Remarks about the on-line submission procedure:
1. A "double-blind" paper evaluation method will be used. To facilitate
that, the authors are kindly requested to produce and provide the paper,
WITHOUT any reference to any of the authors. This means that is necessary to
remove the authors personal details, the acknowledgements section and any
reference that may disclose the authors identity.
LaTeX/PS/PDF/DOC/DOCX/RTF format are accepted.
2. The web submission procedure automatically sends an acknowledgement, by
e-mail, to the contact author.

After the reviewing process is completed, the contact author (the author who
submits the paper) of each paper will be notified of the result, by e-mail.
The authors are required to follow the reviews in order to improve their
paper before the camera-ready submission.

***************
PUBLICATIONS
***************

The workshop proceedings will be published in a workshop proceedings book
and on CD-ROM support, under an ISBN reference. Also, all papers presented
at the workshop venue would be available at the SciTePress Digital Library
(http://www.scitepress.org/DigitalLibrary/).

The corresponding-authors will be notified at all time, for the submission,
notification, and confirmation on the attendance.
Submitting a paper to the workshop means that, if the paper is accepted, at
least one author should attend the conference to present the paper and
should then register to the conference with a workshop fee.
