Final 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.

1. Title, theme and purpose of the workshop.

If the workshop has been held previously at SIGIR or another conference,

webpage <> in pdf
