Call for Short Papers and Demos

36th Annual ACM SIGIR Conference, SIGIR 2013 Dublin, Ireland, 28
July-1 August, 2013

http://sigir2013.ie/posterdemonstrations.html

Submission - http://sigir2013-shortPaper.confmaster.net/

===================================================

Call for Short Papers and Demos 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 retrieval (IR). SIGIR 2013 will be held in Dublin,
Ireland from 28 July - 1 August 2013. The Conference and Program
Chairs invite all those working in areas related to IR to submit
original short papers, and proposals for demonstrations. Note,
that both short paper and demonstration submission guidelines
have changed this year to allow more space for authors to present
their ideas.

Short Papers Short Paper submissions offer researchers an
opportunity to present significant work in progress or research
that is best communicated in an interactive or graphical format.
Each submission that is accepted for SIGIR 2013 will be presented
in a poster format, in order to provide researchers with an
opportunity to obtain direct feedback about their work from a
wide audience during the poster session.

What makes a good short paper? Short papers are not full papers
squeezed into four pages. They can present smaller or more
speculative ideas, they could also be be more controversial, they
may present new applications of old ideas or the reworking of
previous studies. Finally, they should be inspirational and spark
some discussion.

Submissions are welcome in areas related to any aspect of
Information Retrieval (IR), as identified in the call for
contributions and on the SIGIR 2013 website. Submissions are
short research papers presenting original, previously unpublished
work. Submissions describing the work will be reviewed, and
accepted submissions will be published in the conference
proceedings.

Short Paper Submission Content Guidelines Submissions of short
papers must be in English, in PDF format and should not exceed 4
pages in SIGIR format (including references and figures).
Suitable LaTeX and Word templates for SIGIR are available from
the ACM Website (for LaTeX, use Option 2). Authors should conceal
their identity. Submissions that are over the 4-page limit or are
not anonymous or incomplete will be rejected without review. Note
that summaries of full papers that have already been published
elsewhere (including in another language) are not acceptable as
short paper submissions for SIGIR. It is the responsibility of
the authors to ensure that the PDF submission has been uploaded
successfully. We suggest downloading the PDF after submission and
ensuring it is ok.

Submissions must be submitted electronically using the short
paper track of the conference submission system
(http://sigir2013-shortPaper.confmaster.net/). At least one
author must register and attend the conference.

Demonstrations Demonstrations present first-hand experience with
research prototypes or operational systems. They provide
opportunities to exchange ideas gained from implementing IR
systems and to obtain feedback from expert users. Demonstration
submissions are welcome in any of the areas related to any aspect
of Information Retrieval (IR), as identified in the call for
contributions and on the SIGIR 2013 website. The two-page
demonstration submissions will appear in the conference
proceedings.

What makes a good demo? A good demonstration submission is
interesting to a SIGIR audience and shows a novel solution to a
problem. The demonstration submission should address the
following questions. Who is your target user? Why does my system
exist and why is it important? What does my demonstration do and
how does it work? How does it compare with existing systems?
Finally, how and when might my technology have an impact?

Demonstration Submission Content Guidelines Submissions of
demonstration papers must be in English and should not exceed 2
pages in SIGIR format (including references and figures).
Suitable LaTeX and Word templates for SIGIR are available from
the ACM Website (for LaTeX, use Option 2). It is the
responsibility of the authors to ensure that the PDF submission
has been uploaded successfully. We suggest downloading the PDF
after submission and ensuring it is ok.

Unlike short and full-paper submissions, authors of demonstration
submissions are not expected to take measures to conceal their
identity from reviewers. Submissions that are over the 2-page
limit and incomplete submissions will be rejected without review.

Demonstration papers must be submitted electronically via the
demonstration track of the conference submission system
(http://sigir2013-demo.confmaster.net/). At least one author must
register and attend the conference.

Wireless network access, along with a table and poster mount
backdrop will be provided for accepted demonstrations.
