ECIR 2018 - European Conference on Information RetrievalCall for tutorials and workshops
Grenoble, France - March 26-29, 2018
Tutorials inform the community on recent advances in core IR research, related research, or on novel application areas related to IR. They may focus on specific problems or specific domains in which IR research may be applied. Tutorials can be of either a half-day (3 hours plus breaks) or a full day (6 hours plus breaks). Tutorials are encouraged to be as interactive as possible. A university computer teaching laboratory (including multiple computers for students and projection of the instructor’s screen) could be made available for hands-on tutorials. The information required for a tutorial proposal is on the conference website. Tutorial proposals will be reviewed by the tutorial committee. A summary of the tutorial will be published in the conference proceedings.
The purpose of workshops is to provide a platform for presenting novel ideas and research results in a focused and more interactive way. Workshops can be of either a half-day (3 hours plus breaks) or a full day (6 hours plus breaks). Workshops are encouraged to be as dynamic and interactive as possible and should lead to a concrete outcome, such as the publication of a summary paper and/or workshop proceedings. The information required for a workshop proposal is on the conference website. Workshop proposals will be reviewed by the workshop committee. A summary of the workshop will be published in the conference proceedings.
All submissions must be written in English following the ECIR guidelines (http://irsg.bcs.org/proceedings/ECIR_Draft_Guidelines.pdf) and the LNCS author guidelines and submitted electronically through the conference submission system. Full papers must not exceed 12 pages, short papers must not exceed 6 pages, demonstration papers must not exceed 4 pages, reproducible IR track papers must not exceed 12 pages, including references and figures. Full paper, short paper and reproducible IR track paper submissions will be refereed through double-blind peer review. Demonstration papers will undergo single-blind review. Accepted full papers, short papers, demos and reproducible IR track 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, demos and reproducible IR track papers will have to be presented at the conference. Reproducible IR track papers will either be presented as a poster or as an oral presentation.
