SIGIR 2004 Twenty-Seventh Annual International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval http://sigir.org/sigir2004/ July 25 - 29, 2004 Sheffield, UK Organized by The University of Sheffield and ACM 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). The Conference and Program Chairs invite all those working in areas related to IR to submit original research contributions, posters, and proposals for tutorials, workshops, and demonstrations of systems. -------------------------------------------------- SHEFFIELD -------------------------------------------------- Once devoted to being a world-leading steel town, Sheffield's largest money-making industries are now its Universities. The fifth largest city in the UK, Sheffield is one of the country's greenest: filled with parks and trees. The University of Sheffield is located in one of the pleasantest parts: the west end. Here, restaurants, cafes, and bars - all within walking distance of the conference location - offer evening activities for all. Sheffield is an excellent starting point to explore the North of England. To the west, only 5 miles from the city centre, is the Peak District National Park. Here, internationally renowned stately homes, such as Chatsworth, Lyme Park, and Haddon Hall, combine with famous rock climbing crags and great opportunities to walk to produce one of the worlds most visited national parks. To the north east, the city of York offers to the visitor its Minster (the largest Gothic Cathedral in Northern Europe), the Jorvik Viking centre, and the National Railway Museum, the largest such museum in the world. The other great cities of the North, Manchester, Leeds, and Liverpool can all be visited as a day trip from Sheffield. London to the south is only 2.5 hours on the train.
