We cordially invite you to submit proposals for one-day or half-day workshops to be run on the first day of the ECIR 2016 conference, the 20th of March 2016.
ECIR workshops provide a platform for presenting novel ideas in a less formal and possibly more focused way than the main conference. We therefore expect that the workshops offer a common forum to engage and encourage researchers, especially PhD students and early career researchers, to present and discuss their work, and obtain valuable feedback in an interactive, supportive and friendly environment.
The format of each workshop is to be determined by the workshop organisers. Workshops are encouraged to be as dynamic and interactive as possible and should lead to a concrete outcome, such as the publication of a summary paper and/or workshop proceedings.
Researchers and practitioners from all areas of the information retrieval community are invited to submit proposals for review. The organisers of approved workshops are expected to define the focus of the workshop, gather and review submissions, and decide upon its content. The organisers are also responsible for selecting the channels for publishing the workshop proceedings.
Workshop proposals must be written in English. Proposals should be submitted in PDF format via EasyChair in the “Workshop Proposal” Track.
Submission instructions are available here: Submission instructions
The submissions will be reviewed by senior members of the Information Retrieval research community. Organisers of accepted workshops will be invited to submit a brief description of the workshop for inclusion in the ECIR 2016 conference proceedings.
