Recent Events

ECIR 2017

38th European Conference on Information Retrieval

The 39th European Conference on Information Retrieval (ECIR 2017) will take place in Aberdeen, Scotland, UK from 08 to 13 April 2017. 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ECIR encourages the submission of high quality research papers reporting original, previously unpublished results.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.
