The topics examined by contributors include automatic indexing, natural language processing, integration of IR with other information systems, IR in the context of office automation, system modelling and evaluation, user interfaces, the complexity problem, cognitive models, knowledge based IR systems, hardware design to enhance IR, file organisation, and mathematical and linguistic models for IR.
