Call For Papers


We are happy to announce that the 1st Workshop on Federated Learning for Information Retrieval (FLIRT) will be co-located with the 46th International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval (SIGIR 2023).


FLIRT will provide an open forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas, identify key challenges, and define the roadmap toward a successful application of federated learning (FL) in the broad IR area.
We encourage submissions in the following areas:

* Searching and Ranking with FL
- Federated query log analysis
- Federated web search
- Federated retrieval models and ranking

* Filtering and Recommendation with FL
- Federated recommender systems

* Natural Language Processing for Search and Recommendation with FL
- Federated document representation
- Federated knowledge discovery
- Federated question-answering systems

* Infrastructure Challenges for FL-based IR systems
- Data compression
- Data heterogeneity
- Device heterogeneity
- Hardware support for on-device FL-based IR
- Energy efficiency

* Security and Privacy of FL-based IR systems
- Confidentiality and integrity of FL-based IR systems
- Adversarial attacks on FL-based IR systems
- Defense mechanisms for robust FL-based IR systems

* Fairness, Accountability, Transparency, Ethics, and Explainability (FATE) of FL-based IR systems
- FATE for FL-based search, ranking, and recommendation

* Domain-specific IR Applications with FL
- Local/mobile, social, multimedia search
- Education, legal, health, finance, etc.


Location: Taipei, Taiwan
