- cross-language text retrieval
- automated text categorization
- infomation extraction
- automatic text summarization (including automatic abstracting)
- use of machine readable dictionaries and/or thesauri
- language- or task-specific user interfaces for IR-related systems
- various natural language processing techqniques for IR-related tasks
