Important dates (all deadlines assume Hawaii time-zone):

- 22 Oct 2012: posters/demos deadline
- 30 Nov 2012: notification of acceptance

Confirmed Conference/Industry Day Keynote Speakers:

- Mor Naaman (Rutgers, Social Media Information Lab)
- Karen Sparck Jones Award winner (announced on Jan 31)
- Paul Ogilvie (LinkedIn)
- Hilary Mason (bitly)
- Antonio Gulli (Bing Europe)
- Andrey Kalinin (Mail.Ru)
- Marc Najork (Microsoft Research)

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 http://www.conftool.pro/ecir2013/.
