Profile

Noriko Kando is a professor in the Information-society Research Division of the National Institute of Informatics (NII), Tokyo, Japan, and has been co-appointed as a professor in the Department of Informatics at the Graduate University of Advanced Studies, Japan. She initiated NTCIR(http://research.nii.ac.jp/ntcir/index-en.html), an evaluation of information-access technologies, such as information retrieval, summarization, question answering, and text mining, using East Asian languages and English documents, and has been a main designer of various tasks including cross-lingual IR, patent retrieval, opinion analysis, complex question answering, community QA, geo-time search which have attracted international participation. She has been involved in various projects on interactive information access, such as Cognitive Research on Exploratory Search (CRES), Multifaceted Exploratory on Web (MEW), Interacting with Cultural Heritage Digital Archives for Discovery Learning (CEAX), Gaze-driven Interactive Image Search (GLAISE) and Search as Learning (SAL). She received her Ph.D. from Keio University in Library and Information Science in 1995 and has been teaching and conducting research at NII since 1994. She has had more than 100 of her refereed scientific articles published in journals and by international conferences, and has been an invited speaker at many international conferences and workshops.
She is an Asian representative for the ACM-SIGIR Executive Committee from 2003 to 2007, a Program Co-Chair of ACM-SIGIR 2007 and a general co-chair of ACM-SIGIR 2017 Tokyo. She is an Associate Editor of ACM Transaction for Asian Language Information Processing from 2000 to 2007 and for Information Processing and Management (Elsevier) from 2007 to 2013. She is on Scientific Board for Information Retrieval Facility since 2008 to 2012, and on the Board of Trustee for Association of Natural Language Processing in Japan from 1998 to 2002 and from 2011 to 2015.
