Call for Workshop Proposals
36th Annual ACM SIGIR Conference, SIGIR 2013 Dublin, Ireland, 28
July-1 August, 2013
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).
Proposals are solicited for workshops to be held at ACM SIGIR
2013 being held in TCD, Dublin, Ireland. Workshops will usually
last for one day and will be held on Thursday 1 August 2013.
Workshop topics will typically match those identified in the
SIGIR 2013 general call for participation, but proposals
concerned with other areas of information retrieval are welcome.
SIGIR 2013 workshops will provide a platform for presenting novel
ideas and emerging areas in information retrieval in a less
formal and possibly more focused way than the conference itself.
The format of each workshop is to be determined by the
organizers, but it is expected that workshops will contain ample
time for general discussion and engagement by all participants -
not just those presenting papers. Workshops that foster
collaboration, discussion, group problem-solving and community
building initiatives are particularly encouraged. Workshops that
only involve the presentation of papers in a "mini conference"
format are particularly discouraged.
Researchers and practitioners from all areas of the information
retrieval community are invited to submit proposals for review.
The organizers of approved workshops will be expected to define
the workshop's focus, gather and review submissions, and decide
upon final program content. Organizers (including co-organizers)
are expected to attend their entire workshop and to provide an
article for ACM SIGIR Forum summarizing the event.
Workshop proposals should include the following information:
1. Title, theme and purpose of the workshop.
2. Motivation for the workshop and appropriateness to SIGIR.
3. Planned activities and a tentative schedule of events.
4. Selection process for participants and/or presenters and
maximum number of participants (if limited).
5. Names of Organisers
6. Names of potential program committee members (who would act to
organise the proposed workshop) (if a program committee will
If the workshop has been held previously at SIGIR or another
conference, then the organizers should indicate this and describe
briefly past attendance and outcomes, and why another workshop is
needed. The submission should also include a short biographical
sketch of each organizer, describing relevant qualifications and
Proposals should be submitted via the easy chair workshop
format and should not exceed 1000 words. (Note: The word count
limit only applies to the information prescribed (1-4) above and
not to Names of organisers or potential workshop programme
