Search Solutions 2020

Search Solutions 2020

Wednesday 25 November, 2020, Online Event

Innovations in Search & Information Retrieval

Search Solutions is the premier UK forum for presentation of the latest innovations in search and information retrieval. In contrast to other major industry events, Search Solutions aims to be highly interactive, with attendance strictly limited.

The programme will include presentations, panels and keynote talks by influential industry leaders on novel and emerging applications in search and information retrieval.

Call for Presentations

We invite proposals for 30-minute presentations (20-minute talk plus 10-minute Q&A) from practitioners and industry leaders. Your talk should focus on any area of the practical application of search technologies to real-world problems or on novel and emerging applications and topics in Search and Information Retrieval. If you want to discuss the challenges you tackle as well as their solutions, or present your latest innovation, Search Solutions is the venue for you. Search Solutions is attended by students and practitioners from academia and industry alike.

Due to the COVID-19 situation, Search Solutions 2020 will be completely online, making it accessible for a worldwide audience. We are operating on a UK timezone.

Please provide an extended abstract (max 1 page) describing your topic to be presented in a 30-minute presentation plus a short speaker bio (1 paragraph). Please send your 1-page proposal for a presentation at Search Solutions 2020 by Friday September 11 (AoE) to Ingo Frommholz <>. Please use the subject “SearchSolutions2020 Proposal”.


To be announced in due course.
