CALL FOR PAPERS The 32nd Annual ACM SIGIR Conference July 19-23 2009, Boston, USA 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 papers, posters, and proposals for tutorials, workshops, and demonstrations of systems. SIGIR 2009 welcomes contributions related to any aspect of IR theory and foundation, techniques, and applications. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to: * IR Theory and Models (e.g., all kinds of formal IR models including language models and fusion of results, user/task-based IR theory) * IR Platforms and Scalability (e.g., IR architecture including distributed/P2P, efficiency, scalability, indexing, compression) * IR Evaluation (e.g., test collections, evaluation methods and metrics, experimental design, data collection and analysis) * Document Representation and Content Analysis (e.g., text representation, document structure/discourse analysis, linguistic analysis-based representation, non-topical representation) * Query Language and Query Analysis (e.g., structured queries, query representation, query intent analysis) * User Modeling and Interactive IR (e.g., user models, user studies, user interface and visualization, all kinds of feedback techniques, query log analysis, personalized search) * Machine Learning for IR (e.g., learning to rank, probabilistic topic models, all kinds of learning techniques applied to IR) * Information Extraction and Summarization (e.g., entity/relation extraction, sentiment analysis, summarization, discovery of knowledge/patterns from text) * Categorization, Clustering, and Filtering (e.g., text categorization, clustering, content-based filtering, collaborative filtering) * Multimedia IR (e.g., image IR, video IR, speech/audio IR, music IR, analysis of multimedia content) * Question Answering and Cross-Language IR (e.g., question answering, non-English IR, cross-language IR, machine translation for IR) * Web IR (e.g., link analysis, query log analysis, social tagging, social networks, ad targeting, blog/forum IR) * Digital Libraries and Other IR Applications (e.g., digital libraries, enterprise/intranet search, distributed IR, genomics IR, mobile IR, any domain-specific IR application) * IR and Database Search (e.g., XML retrieval, structured queries, ranking in databases) IMPORTANT DATES: Jan 19, 2009 Abstracts for full research papers due Jan 26, 2009 Full research paper submissions due Feb 2, 2009 Workshop proposals due Feb 23, 2009 Posters, demonstration, and tutorial proposals due Mar 2, 2009 Doctoral consortium proposals due Mar 9, 2009 Notification of workshop acceptances Apr 11, 2009 All other acceptance notification Information on how to submit will be available by mid-December, 2008 at http://www.sigir2009.org/ GENERAL CO-CHAIRS: James Allan (University of Massachusetts at Amherst, USA) Javed Aslam (Northeastern University, USA) TECHNICAL PROGRAM CO-CHAIRS: Mark Sanderson (University of Sheffield, UK) ChengXiang Zhai (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA) Justin Zobel (University of Melbourne, Australia) Senior Program Committee (Area Chairs): Eugene Agichtein, Emory University, USA Nick Belkin, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, USA Jamie Callan, Carnegie Mellon University, USA Soumen Chakrabarti, Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, India Hsin-Hsi Chen, National Taiwan University, Taiwan Tat-Seng Chua, National University of Singapore, Singapore Charlie Clarke, University of Waterloo, Canada Fabio Crestani, Università della Svizzera italiana, Switzerland Bruce Croft, University of Massachusetts at Amherst, USA Maarten de Rijke, Universiteit van Amsterdam, The Netherlands Susan Dumais, Microsoft Research Redmond, USA Ed Fox, Virginia Tech, USA Norbert Fuhr, Universität Duisburg-Essen, Germany Djoerd Hiemstra, Universiteit Twente, The Netherlands Rong Jin, Michigan State University, USA Gareth Jones, Dublin City University, Ireland Rosie Jones, Yahoo!
