This is the annual meeting of the Information Retrieval Methods Group (IRMG). There will be series of short presentations on a range of issues concerning identifying studies for inclusion in Cochrane Reviews. All those interested in information retrieval / study identification / searching are welcome to attend the meeting, whether or not they are members of the IRMG. We hope that the meeting will be especially interesting for Cochrane Information Specialists / other information specialists / librarians etc. but all are welcome.
