Apologies for cross-postings CALL FOR PAPERS: ECIR 2012 34th European Conference on Information Retrieval Barcelona, Spain, 1-5 April 2012 http://ecir2012.upf.edu/ Papers submission deadline: 2 October 2011 Poster/Demos submission deadline: 16 October 2011 Notification: 27 November 2011 Call for Papers The Conference encourages the submission of high-quality research papers reporting original and innovative research within Information Retrieval. The conference intends to cover all aspects of accessing digital information with or without explicitly specified semantics. Papers solely or mainly authored by a student are especially welcome. 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. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the areas listed below. The ECIR 2012 conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Authors are invited to submit their paper on or before October 2nd 2011 and for authors of posters or demos the due date is October 16th 2011. All paper submissions must be written in English following the LNCS author guidelines . Papers must not exceed 12 pages including references and figures (shorter papers are welcomed). Accepted papers will have to be presented at the conference. Posters must not be longer than 4 pages. Posters and demonstrations will be presented at a special posters and demonstrations session. All papers will be refereed through double-blind peer review so authors should take reasonable care not identify themselves in their submissions. The proceedings will be distributed to all delegates at the conference. Topics The Program Chairs invite for the submission of original research papers and posters in all areas of Information Retrieval, including but not limited to: IR Theory and Formal Models Searching, browsing, meta-searching, data fusion, filtering and indexing Text and content classification, categorisation, clustering Relevance feedback, query expansion Topic detection and tracking, novelty detection Content-based filtering, collaborative filtering, Spam filtering Personalised, collaborative or user-adaptive IR, recommender systems Adversarial IR Privacy in IR Mobile, Geo and Local Search Web and Social Media IR Link analysis Query log analysis Advertising and ad targeting Spam detection Authority, Reputation, Ranking Blog and online-community search Social Tagging User aspects User modelling, user studies, user interaction in IR systems Interactive IR, User studies, User models, Task-based IR Novel user interfaces for IR systems User interfaces, visualisation and presentation of queries, search results or content Multimodal aspects IR system architectures Distributed and peer to peer IR Parallel IR Fusion/Combination Open, interoperable and flexible Performance, Scalability, Architectures, Efficiency, Platforms Compression, performance, optimisation Content representation and processing IR for semi-structured documents IR for semantically annotated collections, semantic search Meta information and structures, metadata Query representation, Query reformulation Text Categorization and clustering Text data mining Opinion mining Cross-language retrieval, Multilingual retrieval Machine translation for IR Question answering, Natural language processing for IR, Summarization Evaluation Evaluation methosd and metrics Building test collections and metrics Experimental design Crowdsourcing for evaluation User-oriented and user-centered test and evaluation Multimedia and cross-media IR Speech retrieval Image and video retrieval Digital music, radio and broadcast retrieval Applications Digital libraries Enterprise Search, Intranet search, Desktop search Mobile IR Genomic IR, IR for chemical structures, etc. Medical IR, legal IR, patent search Program Committee co-chairs: Arjen de Vries (Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica, Amsterdam) Hugo Zaragoza (Yahoo!
