The papers accepted for publication and presentation at ICTIR 2009 were selected from a total of 82 submissions, which were received from Continental Europe (39%), UK (21%), North America (18%), Asia and Australasia (10%), Middle East and Africa (12%). In total, 18 full papers (22%) and 14 short papers (17%) were presented in talks at the conference. The proceedings were published by Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science: Advances in Information Retrieval Theory The conference ended with a social event, where participants punted on the River Cam and explored the colleges of Cambridge University.
