Call for Tutorials

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 access. SIGIR 2017 will take place in Tokyo,
Japan and includes a full day of tutorials on August 7, 2017.

SIGIR 2017 solicits proposals for both half and full-day tutorials covering
topics relevant to the field of information retrieval and its applications.
Each tutorial should cover a single topic in depth. For example, tutorials
may cover an established information retrieval sub-topic (e.g. retrieval
quality evaluation), introduce an emerging application of information
retrieval technologies (e.g., mobile user engagement), or update the
information retrieval community on recent advances in related fields (e.g.,
deep learning and its potential applications to IR). We are especially
interested in the third category of submission.

Submission Guidelines

Submissions should include a cover sheet and an extended abstract.

The cover sheet should include the following elements:

1. Title and length (either half-day, e.g. 3 hours plus breaks, or full
day, e.g., 6 hours plus breaks) of the tutorial.
2. Intended audience (introductory, intermediate, advanced) and
prerequisite knowledge or skills required.
3. Detailed contact information of all presenters (and indication of the
main contact person).
4. Brief biography (max. 2 paragraphs) for each presenter, highlighting
relevant experience in presenting tutorials, teaching grad classes,
organizing summer schools, etc.

The extended abstract (no longer than 4 pages) should include the following

1. Motivation.
2. Objectives.
3. Relevance to the information retrieval community and reference to
tutorials in the same area at SIGIR or related conferences (including WSDM,
WWW, KDD, ACL, etc.).
4. Format and detailed schedule.
5. Type of support materials to be supplied to attendees.

Tutorial proposals should be prepared in the 2017 ACM Master Article
Template (for LaTeX use the “sigconf” option).
Proposals should be submitted in PDF via EasyChair submission page:
