Call for Industry Day presentations

The Industry Day of ECIR’23 will be held on Thursday 6th April 2022 in Dublin, Ireland, immediately after the main conference program. Our goal is to bring together product developers, information professionals and IR researchers to promote knowledge sharing and innovation across academia and industry.

This year, our primary focus will be on differences and challenges in building dedicated information access systems versus building “search as a service”. Applications may cover search or recommendation systems in various domains (e-commerce, vertical search, etc) and modalities (voice, music, images, etc). Similarly to 2021, we also encourage presentations of research works carried out during student internships and showing how interns contributed impactfully on real-world products with innovative ideas. Submissions about topics relevant to ECIR in general (as listed in the call for papers: are encouraged.

Proposals should be no longer than 2 pages. Please include:

  • A brief portrait of the company
  • A short CV of the presenter(s)
  • Title and abstract of the presentation including the reasons why your experiences should be interesting to the ECIR audience.

There will be a lightweight evaluation procedure where the main focus will lie on the interest for the ECIR audience and the cross-over between academia and industry.
