Call for Research 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. Typical topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Theory and Models for Information Retrieval.
- Efficiency and Performance of IR. Platforms, Architectures. Applications of IR.
- Evaluation and Test collections.
- Indexing. Query representation, Query reformulation, Structure-based representation, XML, Metadata. Summarization. Natural language processing for IR.
- Tracking, Filtering, Topic detection, Collaborative filtering, Agents, Routing and Email spam.

All accepted papers will be published in Springer-Verlag's LNCS series and distributed to all delegates at the Conference. The proceedings will appear as a special commerative edition of LNCS to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the ECIR conference series. It is also planned that some selected outstanding papers from the conference will be invited to contribute to an edited volume of papers marking this significant milestone.
Call for Posters:
Poster submissions addressing any of the areas identified in the conference topics above are also invited. Poster authors are encouraged to demonstrate work in progress and late-breaking research results. Poster papers will also be included in the proceedings.
Call for Workshops/Tutorials:
Submissions are solicited for workshops and tutorials on all topics of Information Retrieval and its applications. Especially encouraged are workshops that facilitate interaction and collaboration among participants, while opening new directions for future research, as well as tutorials that inform the Information Retrieval community on recent advancements in related fields, or on novel application areas related to Information Retrieval.
