As we countdown to the annual Lucene/Solr Revolution conference in Austin this October, we’re highlighting talks and sessions from past conferences. Today, we’re highlighting Ramzi Alqrainy‘s session on using Solr to index and search documents and files in Arabic.

Arabic language poses several challenges faced by the Natural Language Processing (NLP), largely due to the fact that Arabic language, unlike European languages, has a very rich and sophisticated morphological system. This talk will cover some of the challenges and how to solve them with Solr and will also present the challenges that were handled by Opensooq as a real case in the Middle East.

Ramzi Alqrainy is one of the most recognized experts within Artificial Intelligence and Information Retrieval fields in the Middle East. He is an active researcher and technology blogger, with a focus on information retrieval.
