The European Conference on Information Retrieval 2014

April 13-17, 2014
Amsterdam, the Netherlands


The 36th European Conference on Information Retrieval (ECIR 2014) will be
hosted by the Intelligent System Labs Amsterdam (ISLA) in Amsterdam, the
Netherlands from April 13-17, 2014.

ECIR provides an opportunity for both new and established researchers to
present research papers reporting new, unpublished, and innovative research
results within Information Retrieval. 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.

We are seeking the submission of high-quality and original full-length research
papers, short-papers, posters and demos, which 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.


October 14th, 2013 Full paper submission deadline
October 28th, 2013 Posters/Demo submission deadline
September 9th, 2013 Workshop/Tutorial proposal deadline
