Present CFP : 2019

Submission Guidelines

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference.
Submissions of full research papers must be in English, in PDF format, and be at most 9 pages (including figures) + 1 pages of references in length, in the current ACM two-column conference format. Suitable LaTeX, Word, and Overleaf templates are available from the ACM Website (use the "sigconf" proceedings template). Full research papers must describe work that is not previously published, not accepted for publication elsewhere, and not currently under review elsewhere (including as a short-paper submission for SIGIR 2019). Submissions must be anonymous and should be submitted electronically via the conference submission system.

Anonymity

Authors are required to take all reasonable steps to preserve the anonymity of their submission. The submissions document must not include author information and must not include citations or discussion of related work that would make the authorship apparent. Note however, that it is acceptable to explicitly refer in the paper to the companies or organizations that provided datasets, hosted experiments, or deployed solutions. For example, instead of stating that an experiment “was conducted on the logs of a major search engine”, the authors should refer to the search engine by name. The reviewers will be informed that it does not necessarily imply that the authors are currently affiliated with the mentioned organization. While authors can upload to institutional or other preprint repositories such as arXiv.org before reviewing is complete, we generally discourage this since it places anonymity at risk (which could result in a negative outcome of the reviewing process). Authors should carefully go through ACM’s authorship policy before submitting a paper. To support identification of reviewers with conflicts of interest, the full author list must be specified at submission time.

Authors should note that changes to the author list after the submission deadline are not allowed without permission from the PC Chairs. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register for, attend, and present the work at the conference in order for the paper to appear in the conference proceedings in the ACM Digital Library.

All full papers are to be submitted via EasyChair:

https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sigir2019

The CFP for short papers (4 pages), as well as workshops, tutorials, doctoral consortium, industry day, and other SIGIR 2019 venues will be released separately.
List of Tracks

Upon submission, authors should select one or two relevant tracks among the seven tracks indicated below that best represent the area of their submission.

Search and Ranking. Research on core IR algorithmic topics, including IR at scale, covering topics such as:
Queries and query analysis
Web search, including link analysis, sponsored search, search advertising, adversarial search and spam, and vertical search
Retrieval models and ranking, including diversity and aggregated search
Efficiency and scalability
Theoretical models and foundations of information retrieval and access

Future Directions. Research with theoretical or empirical contributions on new technical or social aspects of IR, especially in more speculative directions or with emerging technologies, covering topics such as:
Novel approaches to IR
Ethics, economics, and politics
Applications of search to social good
IR with new devices, including wearable computing, neuroinformatics, sensors, Internet-of-Things, vehicles

Domain-Specific Applications. Research focusing on domain-specific IR challenges, covering topics such as:
Local and mobile search
Social search
Search in structured data including email search and entity search
Multimedia search
Education
Legal
Health, including genomics and bioinformatics
Other domains such as digital libraries, enterprise, news search, app search, archival search

Filtering and recommender systems
Document representation
Content analysis and information extraction, including summarization, text representation, readability, sentiment analysis, and opinion mining
Cross- and multilingual search
Clustering, classification, and topic models
Artificial Intelligence, Semantics, and Dialog. Research bridging AI and IR, especially toward deep semantics and dialog with intelligent agents, covering topics such as:
Question answering
Conversational systems and retrieval, including spoken language interfaces, dialog management systems, and intelligent chat systems
Semantics and knowledge graphs
Deep learning for IR, embeddings, and agents
Human Factors and Interfaces. Research into user-centric aspects of IR, including user interfaces, behavior modeling, privacy, and interactive systems, covering topics such as:
Mining and modeling search activity, including user and task models, click models, log analysis, behavioral analysis, and attention modeling
Interactive and personalized search
Collaborative search, social tagging and crowdsourcing
Information privacy and security
Evaluation. Research that focuses on the measurement and evaluation of IR systems, covering topics such as:
User-centered evaluation methods, including measures of user experience and performance, user engagement and search task design
Test collections and evaluation metrics, including the development of new test collections
Eye-tracking and physiological approaches, such as fMRI
Evaluation of novel information access tasks and systems such as multi-turn information access
Statistical methods and reproducibility issues in information retrieval evaluation
