Call For Papers

ECIR 2019 Call for Submissions
==============================

The European Conference on Information Retrieval is the prime European forum for the presentation of original research in the field of Information Retrieval.

Topics of Interest
------------------

ECIR 2019 is seeking high-quality and original submissions on theory, experimentation, and practice regarding the retrieval, representation, management, and usage of textual, visual and multi-modal information. ECIR strongly supports user, system, application, and evaluation focused papers:

* User aspects including information interaction, contextualisation, personalisation, simulation, characterisation, and information behaviours.
* System aspects including retrieval and recommendation algorithms, machine learning, deep learning, content representation, natural language processing, system architectures, and efficiency methods.
* Applications such as search and recommender systems, web and social media apps, domain specific search (professional, bio, chem, etc.), novel interfaces, intelligent search agents/bots, and related innovative search tools.
* Evaluation research including new measures and novel methods for the measurement and evaluation of users, systems and/or applications.

In addition to these traditional topic areas, ECIR 2019 will be encouraging the submissions of papers on:

* New and Emerging Applications of IR including eHealth, precision medicine, early risk prediction, incident streams, digital text forensics, cultural and social informatics, life and biodiversity retrieval, living lab evaluations, conversational and intelligent search agents, and search as learning.

Full Paper Track
----------------

The Full paper track provides the opportunity for researchers to present their state of the art research in Information Retrieval, which makes, or have the potential to make, a significant contribution to the field. Full paper submissions should be 12 pages in length plus additional pages for references.

Short Paper Track
-----------------

The Short Paper Track calls for original contributions presenting novel, thought-provoking ideas and addressing innovative application areas within the field of Information Retrieval. The inclusion of promising (preliminary) results is encouraged but not required. Papers that stimulate and promote discussion are particularly encouraged. Short paper submissions should be 6 pages in length plus additional pages for references.

Reproducibility Track
---------------------

ECIR also strongly encourages the submission of reproducibility papers that repeat and analyze prior work. In particular we solicit classical reproducibility papers, which replicate prior experiments and show how, why, and when the methods work (or not), along with two other types of reproducibility papers: generalizability papers, that focus on assessing how well technology performs in new contexts (e.g., different time, location, access device, task), and predictability papers, that focus on developing theory and methods that assess and evaluate how generalizable methods are and whether they will work in other contexts.

Reproducibility submissions are welcome in any of the ares related to aspects of Information Retrieval, and either fits with the classical or alternative types of reproducibility papers. Reproducibility submissions should be 12 pages in length plus additional pages for references.

Demonstration Track
-------------------

The Demo Track provide the opportunity for researchers to present their research prototypes and operational systems which they wish to share with the community, obtain feedback from experts, and exchanges knowledge on implementing and developing such systems. Submissions should clearly define their purpose, scope, and audience. All submissions should provide a URL to a live online version of their demo or, alternatively, provide a URL to a video showcasing the main features of their demo. Demonstrations that make their source code freely available are especially encouraged.
Demonstration submissions are welcome in any of the areas related to Information Retrieval (IR), as identified in the Topics of Interest listed above. Demo submissions should be 4 pages in length plus additional pages for references.

Submission Guidelines
---------------------

All submissions must be written in English and be formatted according to the LNCS author guidelines. Additionally authors should consider the ECIR guidelines when crafting their paper and see Fuhr’s guide to avoid common IR evaluation mistakes. All papers should be submitted electronically through the conference submission system. Full papers (e.g. main paper track and reproducibility track) are up to 12 pages in length plus additional pages for references, short papers are up to 6 pages in length plus additional pages for references, and demonstration papers are to be 4 pages in length plus additional pages for references.

Full paper and short paper submissions will be refereed through double-blind peer review. Demonstration papers will undergo single-blind review. Accepted full papers, short papers, and demo 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, and demos papers will have to be presented at the conference–-and at least one author will be required to register.

Submission Deadlines
--------------------

* Workshop/Tutorial proposals: 11 September 2018
* Full papers: 9 October 2018
* Short Papers and Demonstration Papers: 23 October 2018
