ECIR 2023 workshops provide a platform for presenting novel ideas and research results in emerging areas in IR in a more focused and interactive way than the conference itself.
Workshops can be either a half-day (3.30 hours plus breaks) or a full day (7 hours plus breaks). The organizers of approved workshops are expected to setup a webpage for the workshop, disseminate the call for papers and the call for participation, gather and review submissions, before coming with the final program. A camera-ready summary of the workshop should be written by the organizers to be included in ECIR conference proceedings.
Workshops are encouraged to be as dynamic and interactive as possible and should lead to a concrete outcome, such as the publication of workshop proceedings. Organizers are also encouraged to write a summary article for the June edition of the ACM SIGIR Forum highlighting the main results of the workshop.
Workshops are to be onsite. At least one organizer is expected to attend the workshop.
ECIR 2023 encourages the submission of workshops on the theory, experimentation, and practice of retrieval, representation, management, and usage of textual, visual, audio, and multi-modal information, but proposals aligned with other topics of IR (namely those identified in the general call for papers) are highly welcome as well.
Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
Workshop proposals should contain the following information:
Workshop proposals should be prepared using Springer proceedings templates to be found on Springer webpage, with a maximum length of 8 pages. All proposals should be submitted electronically through the conference submission system and must be in English. Workshop proposals will be reviewed by the ECIR 2023 workshop committee based on the quality of their proposal, covered topics, relationship to ECIR and likelihood to attract participants. Final decisions will be made by the ECIR workshop co-chairs.
