The European Conference on Information Retrieval is the prime European forum for the presentation of original research in the field of Information Retrieval.
ECIR 2022 is seeking high-quality and original submissions on theory, experimentation, and practice of information retrieval and interaction.
Topics of Interest =============
ECIR strongly supports user, system, application, and evaluation papers. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
* User aspects, including information interaction, contextualisation, personalisation, simulation, characterisation, and behaviours;
* System and foundational aspects, including retrieval models and architectures, content analysis and classification, recommendation algorithms, query processing and ranking, efficiency and scalability;
* Machine learning, deep learning and neural models, natural language processing, and graph models applied to information retrieval and interaction;
* Applications such as web search, recommender systems, web and social media apps, professional and domain-specific search, novel interfaces to search tools, intelligent search, and conversational agents;
* Evaluation research, including new metrics and novel methods for the measurement and evaluation of retrieval systems, users, and/or applications.
Demonstration Track ================
The Demo track (https://ecir2022.org/calls/demos/) provides the opportunity for researchers to present their research prototypes and operational systems which they wish to share with the community, obtain feedback from experts, and exchange knowledge on implementing and developing such systems.
Submissions should clearly define their purpose, scope, and audience. All submissions should provide a URL to a live online version of their demo or, alternatively, provide a URL to a video showcasing the main features of their demo. Demonstrations that make their source code freely available are especially encouraged. Demonstration submissions are welcome in any of the areas related to Information Retrieval (IR), as identified in the Topics of Interest listed above.
Submission Guidelines ==================
Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word (to be found on that Springer page), for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers.
All submissions must be written in English. All papers should be submitted electronically through the EasyChair submission system.
Demonstration papers are to be 4 pages in length plus additional pages for references. Demonstration papers will undergo single-blind review.
Accepted demo 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 demo papers will have to be presented at the conference and at least one author will be required to register.
Dual Submission Policy ==================
Papers submitted to ECIR 2022 should be substantially different from papers that have been previously published, or accepted for publication, or that are under review at other venues. Exceptions to this rule are:
* Submission is permitted for papers presented or to be presented at conferences or workshops without proceedings.
* Submission is permitted for papers that have previously been made available as a technical report (e.g., in institutional archives or preprint archives like arXiv).
Important dates ============
Demo Paper Submission: October 21, 2021, 11:59 pm (AoE) Notification: November 25, 2021 Main Conference: April 11–13, 2022
