SIGIR 2007: Call for Tutorials and Call for Workshops The 30th Annual International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval 23-27 July 2007, Amsterdam, The Netherlands http://www.sigir2007.org 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). *CALL FOR TUTORIALS* SIGIR 2007 will begin with a full day of tutorials on July 23, 2007. Proposals are solicited for tutorials of either a half-day (3 hours plus breaks) or full day (6 hours plus breaks) on all topics of information retrieval and its applications. Especially encouraged are (1) cross- disciplinary tutorials that educate the IR community about recent technical advancements in related fields (e.g., machine learning, natural language processing, data mining); (2) tutorials about emerging application areas of information retrieval technologies (e.g., Web, bioinformatics). Submissions should include a cover sheet and an extended abstract. The cover sheet should specify: (1) the title and length of the tutorial; (2) the intended audience (introductory, intermediate, advanced); (3) complete contact information for the contact person and other presenters; and (4) a brief biography (max. 2 paragraphs) for each presenter. The extended abstract should be 3 to 4 pages, and should include an outline of the tutorial, along with descriptions of the course objectives, its relevance to the IR community, and course materials. Tutorial proposals in PDF format must be sent via email by February 25, 2007 to the Tutorial Chair, ChengXiang Zhai (czhai AT cs.uiuc.edu). The submissions will undergo peer review and be decided by the Program Committee. Notifications will be made by April 11, 2007. *CALL FOR WORKSHOPS* SIGIR 2007 will end with a full day of workshops on July 27, 2007. Proposals are solicited for one-day or half-day workshops to be held on July 27, 2007, the last day of the conference. The purpose of SIGIR workshops is to provide a platform for presenting novel ideas in a less formal and possibly more focused way than the conference itself. As such, they also offer a good opportunity for young researchers to present their work and to obtain feedback from an interested community. The format of each workshop is to be determined by the organizers, but it is expected that they contain ample time for general discussion. Researchers and practitioners from all segments of the information retrieval community are invited to submit proposals for review. The organizers of approved workshops are 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 the SIGIR Forum summarizing the event. Submissions describing proposed workshops (up to 1,000 words) should include the theme and goals of the workshop, planned activities, the maximum number of participants, the selection process for participants and names of potential program committee members (if a program committee will be formed). The submission should include a one-paragraph biographical sketch for each organizer, describing relevant qualifications and experience. Workshop proposals must be sent by email to the Workshops Chair, Josiane Mothe (mothe AT irit.fr) by February 25, 2007. *IMPORANT DATES* January 28, 2007: Full research papers due February 25, 2007: Poster, demonstration, tutorial, and workshop submissions March 11, 2007: Doctoral consortium submissions due April 11, 2007: Notification of acceptance for all submissions July 23-27, 2007: Conference in Amsterdam See also: http://www.sigir2007.org/cfp.html Syndication: http://www.sigir2007.org/news/feed.rss Mailinglist: Send SUBSCRIBE to sigir07_(on)_cs.utwente.nl Contact: info_(on)_sigir2007.org _______________________________________________ Elsnet-list mailing list Elsnet-list_(on)_elsnet.org http://mailman.elsnet.org/mailman/listinfo/elsnet-list
