IDF.social is your home if you know:

\[
\textit{idf} = - \log \frac{n_t}{N}
\]

and... everyone else!

Dear all,

For now, I will keep the site closed for registrations; but everyone can independently invite people to join using the following link to generate an invite:

idf.social/invites

If you know someone who wants to join this instance, then please do give them an invite!

Consider the instance open for those who know anyone on IDF.social.

"Sense of community" and an initial seed of some 40 IR researchers should be enough to keep those spammers out of here and still grow the club!

Dr. Adriaan van Dis giving a great lecture in the occasion of his Honorary Doctorate.
Margot Mulkens on behalf of the Faculty of Arts awarding an Honerary Doctorate to Adriaan van Dis.

"This year, we say "Never again" differently. We hear "Never Again" differently. It sounds painful, cruel. Without an exclamation, but with a question mark. You say: never again? Tell Ukraine about it. Eternal honor to all who opposed Nazism! Eternal memory to all those killed during the Second World War!"

The "unofficial" Information Retrieval Mastodon Instance.

Goal: Make idf.social a viable and valuable social space for anyone working in Information Retrieval and related scientific research.

Everyone welcome but expect some level of geekiness on the instance and federated timelines.
