ECIR 2008 Call for full papers, posters, workshop and tutorial proposals

ECIR 2008
30th European Conference on Information Retrieval, Glasgow, UK.
30th March  3rd April, 2008.

The Annual European Conference on Information Retrieval is the main 
European forum for the presentation of new research results in the field 
of Information Retrieval. ECIR 2008 is the 30th anniversary of this 
conference series and will take place in Glasgow, Scotland.

We encourage the submission of high-quality research papers reporting 
original and innovative research within Information Retrieval. The 
conference intends to cover all aspects of accessing digital information 
with or without explicitly specified semantics. Papers solely or mainly 
authored by a student are especially welcome. 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.

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.
 Categorization and clustering.
 User studies and interfaces. Interactive IR. Task-based IR.
 Web IR, Distributed IR, Digital libraries. Intranet, Desktop, 
Enterprise and Blog Search. Adversarial IR.
 Question answering and information extraction. Text Data Mining and 
Machine Learning for IR.
 Multimedia IR.
 Cross-language and multilingual Information Retrieval.

All papers will be refereed through blind peer review. Authors are 
invited to submit research papers representing original, previously 
unpublished work, on or before 1st October, 2007 (Midnight GMT), 
following the paper submission guidelines available on the conference 
homepage (12 pages LNCS format including references and figures). 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.

Poster submissions addressing any of the areas identified in the 
conference topics are also invited. Poster authors are encouraged to 
demonstrate work in progress and late-breaking research results. Poster 
abstracts (maximum 5 pages) will also be included in the proceedings.

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.

Submissions describing proposed workshops and tutorials should be up to 
1,000 words. They should state the title and the goals of the proposed 
workshop or tutorial, as well as the full contact details of the 
organizers and presenters, including a one-paragraph biography with past 
experience in organizing relevant events.

An award will be presented to the author of the Best Paper, Best Student 
Paper, and Best Poster presented at the conference.
