ECIR 2016 solicits proposals for tutorials of either half-day (3 hours plus breaks) or full day (6 hours plus breaks) duration. The goal of the ECIR 2016 Tutorials is to offer conference attendees and local participants a stimulating and informative selection of tutorials reflecting current topics in information retrieval and related areas. Proposals are welcomed on all topics of information retrieval and its applications. Each tutorial should cover in detail a single topic out of state-of-the-art methods in core information retrieval, related research, or novel and emerging applications. For example, tutorials may cover an established information retrieval topic in depth, introduce an emerging application of information retrieval technologies, or update the information retrieval community on recent advances in related fields.
A tutorial proposal should include the following:
Tutorial proposals must be written in English. Proposals should be submitted in PDF format.
The submissions will be reviewed by senior members of the Information Retrieval research community. Presenters of accepted tutorials will be invited to submit a brief description of the tutorial for inclusion in the ECIR conference proceedings.
