* Second Call for Papers *

The European Conference on Information Retrieval 2014

April 13-17, 2014

Amsterdam, the Netherlands



The 36th European Conference on Information Retrieval (ECIR 2014) will be hosted by the Intelligent System Labs Amsterdam (ISLA) in Amsterdam, the Netherlands from April 13-17, 2014.

ECIR provides an opportunity for both new and established researchers to present research papers reporting new, unpublished, and innovative research results within Information Retrieval. ECIR has traditionally had a strong student focus and papers whose sole or main author is a postgraduate student or postdoctoral researcher are especially welcome.

We are seeking the submission of high-quality and original full-length research papers, short-papers, posters and demos, which 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 Information Retrieval.

================ IMPORTANT DATES ================

October 14th, 2013 Full paper submission deadline October 28th, 2013 Posters/Demo submission deadline September 9th, 2013 Workshop/Tutorial proposal deadline December 2nd, 2013 Notification of acceptance April 13-17, 2014 ECIR Conference in Amsterdam, the Netherlands

=========== FOR AUTHORS ===========

All submissions must be written in English following LNCS author guidelines (http://www.springer.com/lncs) and submitted electronically through the ConfTool submission system, which will be made available shortly at http://www.ecir2014.org/for-authors/. Full papers must not exceed 12 pages including references and figures. Accepted papers will have to be presented at the conference. All submissions will be refereed. Papers will undergo double-blind peer review, so authors should take reasonable care not identify themselves in their submissions.
