Information Retrieval Specialist Group
IRSG Supported Events
The Annual BCS-IRSG European Conference on Information Retrieval is a forum for early-career researchers in the area of Information Retrieval with a vision to: provide a supportive forum for which their research can be presented, discussed and debated; provide feedback from seasoned Information Retrieval researchers; and facilitate a large student audience as well as established researchers by ensuring that the costs are minimal.
The BCS Information Retrieval Specialist Group (IRSG) has been running a successful annual conference for young researchers in Information Retrieval since 1979. Originally the event was started as a BCS-IRSG Colloquium for Information Retrieval, but now has developed into a well establsihed European conference to reflect the increased popularity and importance of the event.
The BCS-IRSG Committee is interested in hearing from bidders for organizing ECIR 2019 in any European country. ECIR 2017 is to be held in Aberdeen, Scotland. Recent ECIR events have been held in Padua, Italy (2016), Vienna, Austria (2015), Amsterdam, The Netherlands (2014) Moscow, Russia (2013), Barcelona, Spain (2012), Dublin, Ireland (2011), and Milton Keynes, UK (2010).
Detailed guidelines will be announced in summer 2017.
