Call For Papers

35th European Conference on Information Retrieval (ECIR 2013)
Moscow, Russia, 24-27 March 2013

- Four weeks to go for full papers---please submit your abstract timely!
- Open for submissions at

Important dates
- 1 Oct 2012: full paper abstract deadline
- 8 Oct 2012: full paper deadline
- 22 Oct 2012: posters/demos deadline
- 30 Nov 2012: notification of acceptance

Call for Papers
The conference encourages the submission of high-quality research papers
reporting original and innovative research in Information Retrieval.
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. We
accept not only full-papers, but also poster and demo short papers. 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.

All submissions must be written in English following the LNCS author
guidelines and submitted electronically through the conference submission
system. Full papers must not exceed 12 pages including references and
figures. Poster and Demo papers must not be longer than 4 pages. Accepted
papers will have to be presented at the conference. Posters and
demonstrations will be presented at a special posters and demonstrations
session. All submissions will be refereed. Papers and posters will undergo
double-blind peer review, so authors should take reasonable care not
identify themselves in their submissions. Demo submissions are not
anonymous and should preferably contain a link to an online demo.

Full papers, posters and demos submissions in PDF conforming to the LNCS
style can be submitted at
