A series of workshops presenting the results of lab-based comparative/competitive evaluations are attached to the main Conference. This is the 14th edition of the CLEF initiative as a forum for Information Access Evaluation with special attention to multimodality and multilinguality.

All submissions to the CLEF main conference will be reviewed on the basis of relevance, originality, importance, and clarity. The conference proceedings will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).
