=== Call for Papers ===

You are invited to participate in the 3rd Joint Workshop on Bibliometric-enhanced IR and NLP for Digital Libraries (BIRNDL), to be held as part of 41st International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval (SIGIR 2018) in Ann Arbor, Michigan USA on 12th July 2018.


This is the third BIRNDL workshop, second at SIGIR, following a series of successful BIR workshops at ECIR and other premier IR venues. In conjunction with the BIRNDL workshop, we will also hold the 4th CL-SciSumm Shared Task in Scientific Document Summarization. Reports from the shared task systems will be featured as part of a session at the workshop.


=== Important Dates ===

- Submissions deadline: May 4, 2018

- Notification: May 25, 2018

- Camera Ready Contributions: June 25, 2018

- Workshop: July 12, 2018 in Ann Arbor Michigan, USA

=== Aim of the Workshop ===

The goal of the BIRNDL workshop at SIGIR is to engage the IR community about the open problems in academic search. Academic search refers to the large, cross-domain digital repositories which index research papers, such as the ACL Anthology, ArXiv, ACM Digital Library, IEEE database, Web of Science and Google Scholar. Currently, digital libraries collect and allow access to papers and their metadata --- including citations --- but mostly do not analyze the items they index. The scale of scholarly publications poses a challenge for scholars in their search for relevant literature. Finding relevant scholarly literature is the key theme of BIRNDL and sets the agenda for tools and approaches to be discussed and evaluated at the workshop. We would also like to address the need for established, standardized baselines, evaluation metrics and test collections.

We invite papers and presentations that incorporate insights from IR, bibliometrics and NLP to develop new techniques to address the open problems in Big Science, such as evidence-based searching, measurement of research quality, relevance and impact, the emergence and decline of research problems, identification of scholarly relationships and influences and applied problems such as language translation, question-answering and summarization.
