SIGIR 2009 DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM 19 July 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 ACM SIGIR Doctoral Consortium provides doctoral students with a unique opportunity to have substantive interaction with other researchers regarding their dissertation research. The objectives of the Doctoral Consortium are: * To provide a forum where doctoral students can present and discuss their proposed research with experienced IR researchers: the members of the Doctoral Consortium Program Committee. * To provide students with an opportunity to establish a supportive community including other doctoral students at the same stage of their dissertation research. The format of the Consortium will be: student presentations with plenary discussions, individual meetings with experienced researchers, and more informal discussions over lunch. Prospective student attendees should have commenced doctoral research, and it is desirable that the student is not so close to completion that the event would have little or no impact on their work. Selection for attendance will be based on a written paper, singly authored by the student wishing to attend the Consortium. An appendix must include details of why the student wishes to attend and a statement by the supervisor saying how the student would benefit. Brief abstracts of the accepted papers will be published in the SIGIR Conference Proceedings. Doctoral students who submit to the Consortium are permitted to have previously published papers on their research, and are encouraged to submit papers or posters to SIGIR and associated workshops. FURTHER DETAILS Complete details of SIGIR 2009 and the SIGIR Doctoral Consortium are available on the SIGIR 2009 web site (http://www.sigir2009.org/). Paper content guidelines, required formats, and submission details are given and should be strictly adhered to.
