Call for Posters/Demos

The conference encourages the submission of short papers (presented as
poster or demo) reporting original and innovative research in
Information Retrieval.  Posters should present work in progress or
leading-edge work.  Demo papers should describe first-hand experiences
with research prototype systems.

ECIR has traditionally had a strong student focus, and papers whose
sole or main author is a postgraduate student or postdoctoral
researcher are especially welcome.  Papers that demonstrate a high
level of research adventure or which break out of the traditional IR
paradigms are also particularly welcome.

Posters and Demos are published as short papers not exceeding 4 pages,
and will be presented at a special posters and demonstrations session.
 All submissions will be refereed. Posters will undergo double-blind
peer review, so authors should take reasonable care not identify
themselves in their submissions.  Demo submissions are not required to
be anonymous and should preferably contain a link to an online demo.

All submissions must be written in English following the LNCS author
guidelines and submitted in PDF format electronically through the
conference submission system at


The Program Chairs invite for the submission of original posters and
demos in all areas of Information Retrieval, including but not limited
