* Call for Tutorials *
The European Conference on Information Retrieval 2014
April 13-17, 2014
Amsterdam, the Netherlands
ECIR 2014 solicits proposals for tutorials of either half-day (3 hours plus breaks) or full day (6 hours plus breaks) duration. The goal of the ECIR 2014 Tutorials is to offer conference attendees and local participants a stimulating and informative selection of tutorials reflecting current topics in information retrieval and related areas. Proposals are welcomed on all topics of information retrieval and its applications. Each tutorial should cover a single topic in detail on state-of-the-art methods in core information retrieval, related research or novel and emerging applications. For example, tutorials may cover an established information retrieval topic in depth, introduce an emerging application of information retrieval technologies, or update the information retrieval community on recent advances in related fields. The tutorials will take place on April 13th, 2014.
===================== SUBMISSION GUIDELINES =====================
Submissions should include a cover sheet and an extended abstract. The cover sheet should specify: 1. the title and length of the tutorial; 2. the intended audience (introductory, intermediate, advanced) and
prerequisite knowledge or skills required, if any; 3. complete contact information for the contact person and other presenters; 4. a brief biography (max. 2 paragraphs) for each presenter.
The extended abstract should be 8 to 10 pages, and should include an outline of the tutorial, along with descriptions of its topics, learning objectives, and key citations to publications covered by the tutorial, as well as its relevance to the information retrieval community and details of materials to be supplied to attendees.
Tutorials must be written in English following LNCS author guidelines. Proposals should be submitted via ConfTool - https://www.conftool.pro/ecir2014/.
