The 37th European Conference on Information Retrieval (ECIR 2015) will take place in Vienna, Austria from 29 March to 2 April 2015. ECIR is the main European forum for the presentation of new research results in the field of Information Retrieval (IR).
ECIR encourages the submission of high quality research papers reporting original, previously unpublished results. With the rapidly increasing amount of data produced in the world and the increasing adoption of IR techniques beyond the traditional search for documents, papers on IR applied to eScience and to the Internet of Things are particularly encouraged.
ECIR has a strong student focus, hence papers whose sole or main author is a postgraduate student or a postdoctoral researcher are especially welcome. Through the student mentoring programme, PhD students can request the assistance of a mentor, who can give advice and suggest improvements to an almost complete paper.

The Annual BCS-IRSG European Conference on Information Retrieval is a forum for young 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.
