Meeting Description: 

SIGIR is the major international forum for the presentation of new research
results and for the demonstration of new systems and techniques in the broad
field of information retrieval (IR). The Conference and Program Chairs invite
all those working in areas related to IR to submit original research
contributions, posters, and proposals for tutorials, workshops, and
demonstrations of systems.
