Present CFP : 2018

Full Papers, Short Papers and Demonstrations

We are seeking the submission of high-quality and original full papers, short papers and demos. Submissions will be reviewed by experts on the basis of the originality of the work, the validity of the results, chosen methodology, writing quality and the overall contribution to the field of IR. Short Paper submissions addressing any of the areas identified in the conference topics are also invited. Authors are encouraged to describe work in progress and late-breaking research results. Demonstrations present research prototypes or operational systems. They provide opportunities to exchange ideas gained from implementing IR systems and to obtain feedback from expert users. Demonstration submissions are welcome in any of the conference topic areas. Note that ECIR 2018 is offering a student mentoring program with the objective to help and support students with the writing of their papers (full or short).

Reproducible IR Research Track

We are happy to announce that the Reproducible IR Research Track introduced at ECIR 2015 will continue for ECIR 2018. Reproducibility is critical for establishing reliable, referenceable and extensible research for the future. Experimental papers are therefore most useful when their results can be tested and generalised by peers. This track specifically invites submission of papers reproducing a single or a group of papers, from a third-party where you have *NOT* been directly involved (e.g., *not* been an author or a collaborator). Emphasise your motivation for selecting the paper/papers, the process of how results have been attempted to be reproduced (successful or not), the communication that was necessary to gather all information, the potential difficulties encountered and the result of the process. A successful reproduction of the work is not a requirement, but it is important to provide a clear and rigid evaluation of the process to allow lessons to be learned for the future.

Tutorials

Tutorials inform the community on recent advances in core IR research, related research, or on novel application areas related to IR. They may focus on specific problems or specific domains in which IR research may be applied. Tutorials can be of either a half-day (3 hours plus breaks) or a full day (6 hours plus breaks). Tutorials are encouraged to be as interactive as possible. A university computer teaching laboratory (including multiple computers for students and projection of the instructor’s screen) could be made available for hands-on tutorials. The information required for a tutorial proposal can be found on the specific web page. Tutorial proposals will be reviewed by the tutorial committee. A summary of the tutorial will be published in the conference proceedings.

Workshops

The purpose of workshops is to provide a platform for presenting novel ideas and research results in a focused and more interactive way. Workshops can be of either a half-day (3 hours plus breaks) or a full day (6 hours plus breaks). Workshops are encouraged to be as dynamic and interactive as possible and should lead to a concrete outcome, such as the publication of a summary paper and/or workshop proceedings. The information required for a workshop proposal can be found on the specific web page. Workshop proposals will be reviewed by the workshop committee. A summary of the workshop will be published in the conference proceedings.

Submission guidelines

All submissions must be written in English following the ECIR guidelines and the LNCS author guidelines and submitted electronically through the conference submission system. Full papers must not exceed 12 pages, short papers must not exceed 6 pages, demonstration papers must not exceed 4 pages, reproducible IR track papers must not exceed 12 pages, including references and figures. Full paper, short paper and reproducible IR track paper submissions will be refereed through double-blind peer review. Demonstration papers will undergo single-blind review. Accepted full papers, short papers, demos and reproducible IR track papers will be published in the conference proceedings published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. The proceedings will be distributed to all delegates at the Conference. Accepted full papers, short papers, demos and reproducible IR track papers will have to be presented at the conference. Reproducible IR track papers will either be presented as a poster or as an oral presentation.

Topics

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- IR Theory and Practice
- Web and Social Media IR
