Mobile information retrieval (IR) is concerned with the indexing and retrieval of information such as text, graphics, animation, sound, speech, image, video, and their possible combinations for use in mobile devices with wireless network connectivity. The proliferation of wireless and mobile devices such as personal digital assistants and mobile phones has created a large demand for mobile information content as well as effective mobile IR techniques. To meet this demand, we will need new technologies for representing, modeling, indexing, and retrieving mobile data. This special issue focuses on contributions that expand the state of the art of building intelligent systems for mobile IR.
