ECIR 2010 Best Paper Award and other coverage

It's been a busy week, so I'm behind on catching up with ECIR 2010. However, I wanted to share the best paper award winners:

Promoting Ranking Diversity for Biomedical Information Retrieval Using Wikipedia (joint award)
Jimmy Huang (York University, Canada)
Xiaoshi Yin (York University, Canada)

I'm not exactly sure who the other join winner is, but inferring from the incomplete tweets, one candidate is:

Evaluation of an adaptive search suggestion system
Sascha Kriewel (University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany)
Norbert Fuhr (University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany)

Best Poster Award:
Filtering document with subspaces
Benjamin Piwowarski (University of Glasgow, United Kingdom)
