Call for Workshop Proposals

36th Annual ACM SIGIR Conference, SIGIR 2013
Dublin, Ireland, 28 July-1 August, 2013

Submission -


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). Proposals are
solicited for workshops to be held at ACM SIGIR 2013 being held in TCD,
Dublin, Ireland. Workshops will usually last for one day and will be
held on Thursday 1 August 2013. Workshop topics will typically match
those identified in the SIGIR 2013 general call for participation, but
proposals concerned with other areas of information retrieval are

SIGIR 2013 workshops will provide a platform for presenting novel
ideas and emerging areas in information retrieval in a less formal
and possibly more focused way than the conference itself. The format of
each workshop is to be determined by the organizers, but it is
expected that workshops will contain ample time for general discussion
and engagement by all participants - not just those presenting
papers. Workshops that foster collaboration, discussion, group
problem-solving and community building initiatives are particularly
encouraged. Workshops that only involve the presentation of papers in a
“mini conference” format are particularly discouraged.

Researchers and practitioners from all areas of the
information retrieval community are invited to submit proposals for
review. The organizers of approved workshops will be expected to define
the workshop's focus, gather and review submissions, and decide
upon final program content. Organizers (including co-organizers)
are expected to attend their entire workshop and to provide an article
for ACM SIGIR Forum summarizing the event.

Submission Requirements

Workshop proposals should include the following information:
1. Title, theme and purpose of the workshop.
2. Motivation for the workshop and appropriateness to SIGIR.
3. Planned activities and a tentative schedule of events.
4. Selection process for participants and/or presenters and
   maximum number of participants (if limited).
5. Names of Organisers
6. Names of potential program committee members (who would act
   to organise the proposed workshop) (if a program committee will
   be formed).

If the workshop has been held previously at SIGIR or another conference,
then the organizers should indicate this and describe briefly past
attendance and outcomes, and why another workshop is needed. The
submission should also include a short biographical sketch of each
organizer, describing relevant qualifications and experience.

Proposals should be submitted via the easy chair workshop submission
webpage ( in pdf
format and should not exceed 1000 words. (Note: The word count limit
only applies to the information prescribed (1-4) above and not to Names
