- Suggested process is to give feedback on this page for Possible Talks.  If there is "enough"
interest, the presenter should move a talk to the "for sure" section and update the times.

+  * Introduction and Icebreaker
+  * Short Form Talks (15-20 minutes max)
- = Target Audience / Marketing Pitch =
- 
- The target audience of the Lucene track are current and potential users of the various Lucene
subprojects. Mostly these users are developers in other downstream or in-house projects.
- 
- Initial marketing pitch (feel free to improve):
- 
- Apache Lucene is a robust and powerful, open source, search library that powers search and
discovery in thousands of websites and applications ranging from large corporations like Apple
Computer and CNET to startups creating next generation intelligent applications.
- 
- Over the years, Lucene has grown beyond just a pure Java library into a complete ecosystem
of tools designed to help developers and businesses solve critical information access problems.
 Whether it’s leveraging the power and simplicity of Apache Solr’s  search and faceting
capabilities or the large scale crawling features of Nutch, chances are Lucene has a solution
to meet your needs.  Moreover, with the recent additions of Apache Tika (content extraction),
Apache Mahout (machine learning) and Apache Droids (crawling framework), as well as ports
of Lucene to languages like C, Python and .NET, it has never been easier to build search capabilities
into any application, no matter the scale.
- 
- The Lucene Track at ApacheCon will feature a full slate of training, talks and networking
on the entire Lucene ecosystem.  Talks will cover both the technical details and the business
aspects of Lucene.  Networking events will help connect you with the creators of Lucene and
other users.

- = Fer-sure Talks or Tutorials (please add time estimates) =
-  
-  Let's wait to fill this in until Concom provides us a list from the regular CFP process.
- 
- = Possible Talks or Tutorials =
- 
-  * Lucene Basics (Michael Busch or others?)
-  * Intro to Solr (????:  Hoss out of the box talk?)
-    * FWIW: I've given OOTB twice before, and it's always been ''really'' rushed in the 50
minute block.  In an ideal world it could be broken out into a ~40 minute overview of all
the features solr provides "Out Of The Box" and then another ~40 live demo of using Solr OOTB
to index and make sense of an arbitrary data set. --Hoss
-  * Intro to Nutch and/or Nutch Vertical Search (Andrzej Bialecki) (when was the last time
we had a Nutch talk? ''probably never...'')

Grant on his Intelligent search talk) - 1 hour

- = Abstracts =
- 
- == Building Intelligent Search Apps w/ the Lucene Ecosystem ==
- 
- Apache Lucene has evolved in recent years beyond a core search library into a top level
project containing a whole suite of tools for working with content.  Starting with Solr, which
builds on the core Lucene search library, we can add in tools like Tika, Mahout, Droids and
other open source libraries to build intelligent search applications.  This talk will focus
on how to leverage the various components of the Lucene Ecosystem to build out intelligent
search applications that better enable users to find what they are looking for in today's
sea of content.
- 
- == Building Recommendation Systems with Lucene ==
- 
- Recommendation systems don't have to involve much new code.  Instead, you can build advanced
recommendation systems using Lucene and some pre-processing.  This talk will provide specific
examples of how logs of behavior can be processed to produce real-time recommendations using
Lucene for the heavy lifting.
- 
- == Solr Flair: User Interfaces powered by Apache Solr ==
- Come see Solr in a new light, with snazzy innovative user interfaces.  We'll talk about
Solr's flexible capabilities for driving custom user interfaces and how projects like SolrJS
and "Solritas" bring Solr to the front-end.  We'll experience user interfaces in a variety
of front-end technologies, including PHP, Ruby on Rails, Java, Velocity, JQuery, and SIMILE
Timeline.  We'll have Ajax, clouds, maps, timelines, and set visualizations, oh my!
- 
- == Realtime Search in Lucene ==
- 
- What is near realtime search in Lucene?  How can it be used to enhance your existing search
applications?  What are the limitations?  We'll go over how NRT is implemented, use cases
for how/when to use it and when not to, how to do replication with NRT.
