The 13th meeting of the Forum for Information Retrieval Evaluation 2021 will be a virtual conference. Given the current COVID-19 situation all the presentations will be conducted virtually. We are seeking the submission of high-quality and original paper. Submissions 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 IR and NLP. Authors are encouraged to describe work in progress and late-breaking research results.

Program Committee members: http://fire.irsi.res.in/fire/2021/organization

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to


Search and Ranking: Research on core algorithmic topics in IR:


Queries and query analysis (e.g., Query understanding, query

reformulation, query representation etc.)


Retrieval models and ranking (e.g., Cross lingual IR, ranking

algorithms, language models, retrieval algorithms, learning to rank etc)


Efficiency and scalability (e.g., distributed search, search engine

architecture, indexing, crawling etc)


Domain Specific: Research on domain specific IR and NLP:


Applications in Social Media (e.g., Hate speech recognition, social

Submission Guidelines

Submissions must describe substantial, original and unpublished work. Wherever appropriate, concrete evaluation and analysis must be included. If the paper being submitted is under review at any other venue, the same should be explicitly mentioned when making the submission. Such a paper, if accepted, should be withdrawn from all other places.

We are now accepting submissions. Papers have to be submitted at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=fire2 <https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=fire20>1

Paper Template and Submission

The submitted papers must follow ACM SIG's template available on https://www.acm.org/publications/taps/word-template-workflow . The only accepted format of submissions is PDF. Papers which do not conform to the requirements may get rejected without review. 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).

Paper Length

>From this year, instead of having two separate categories for long and
short papers, we invite submissions of length varying in the range of 2 to 9 pages of content with any number of pages for references. The longer papers will be allocated more time during the presentation.

Paper Review Policy

All submissions to FIRE 2021 will be reviewed on the basis of originality, relevance, importance and clarity by at least two reviewers. The review process will be double blind and the authors should not mention their names or institutional details anywhere in the paper. Authors should refer to themselves in third person when citing their own work. Expressions like "In our earlier work..." or "We previously showed that..." should be avoided when submitting the paper for review.

Presentation Requirements

If accepted, at least one author will have to register for the conference and present their work virtually. The author can also send their pre recorded presentation video but should be available during the question answer session at the end of the presentation.

Overall co-ordinators - Prasenjit Majumder (DA-IICT) - Mandar Mitra (ISI Kolkata)
