What is ARG?

Amphora Research Group (ARG) was established in 2001 at the Department of Computer Science, FEI, VŠB-Technical University of Ostrava. The intention was to form an organized research unit specialized in topics of Information Retrieval (IR) and other related disciplines.

The ARG research activities relate mostly to applications in Information Retrieval (in the broad meaning). We deal with the following particular areas:

  • Data Indexing And Storage
  • Data Modeling
  • Data Compress
  • Text Retrieval
  • Multimedia and Multidimensional Databases
  • XML
  • Data Security
  • Parallelism

The workshop is public for anyone who is interested in current problems of Computer Science (especially IR). The ARG workshop takes place on the ground of Department of Computer Science, FEI, Technical University of Ostrava.
