Call for Papers

The European Conference on Information Retrieval provides an opportunity for both new and established researchers to present research papers reporting new, unpublished, and innovative research results within information retrieval. Poster and demo submissions addressing any of the areas identified in the conference topics are also invited. Authors are encouraged to demonstrate work in progress and late-breaking research results.

Call for Papers

We are seeking the submission of high-quality and original research papers that have not been previously published and are not under review for another conference or journal. 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 Information Retrieval. ECIR has traditionally had a strong student focus. Papers whose sole or main author is a young researcher and in particular, postgraduate student or postdoctoral researcher are especially welcome. Papers that demonstrate a high level of research adventure or which break out of the traditional IR paradigms are particularly welcome.

The Program Chairs invite for the submission of original research papers and posters in all areas of Information Retrieval, including but not limited to: Authors are invited to submit research papers presenting original, previously unpublished, work on or before 1 October 2009. Submissions must be written in English following the LNCS guidelines and must not exceed 12 pages including references and figures. All papers will be refereed through double-blind peer review. Accepted papers will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. The proceedings will be distributed to all delegates at the Conference.
