CALL FOR SHORT PAPERS
FIRE (Forum for Information Retrieval Evaluation)
Indian Statistical Institute, Bangalore
5-7 December 2014
The success of TREC, CLEF, and NTCIR has clearly established the importance of building reusable, large-scale standard test collections in Information Access research. The Forum for Information Retrieval Evaluation (FIRE) follows in the footsteps of TREC, CLEF and NTCIR with the following aims: * to encourage research in South Asian language Information Access technologies by providing appropriate test collections; * to explore new Information Retrieval / Access tasks that arise as our information needs evolve, and new needs emerge.
SHORT PAPER Session: We invite short papers (4 pages) describing work on any topic related to Information Retrieval and its evaluation. Specially welcome are the papers on creation of standard test collections on any sub-domain in the broad area of information access. Submitted papers will be blind-reviewed according to originality and technical merit. Selected papers will be published in the Workshop Proceedings in ACM Digital Library and can be presented during the Workshop. Authors of selected short papers will be invited to submit an extended version for publication in a peer-reviewed journal.
SUBMISSION: The papers must be written in English and should not exceed 4 pages in the ACM 2-column format (including references and figures). Suitable LaTeX and Word templates are available from the ACM Website: http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates (for LaTeX, use Option 2). The only accepted format for submissions is PDF. Short papers must be submitted electronically using EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=fire20140). After login, please choose the short paper option for submission.
Author identity should be concealed (please omit author names and affiliations from the initial submission). Submissions that are over the 4-page limit or are not anonymous will be rejected without review. Note that shorter version of full papers that have already been published elsewhere (including in another language) are not acceptable as short paper submissions for FIRE.
At least one author must register and attend the conference. Please note that it is the responsibility of the authors to ensure that the PDF submission has been uploaded successfully (we suggest that you try downloading your paper again yourself, to check).
