About the Conference

The 45th European Conference on Information Retrieval (ECIR) is the annual premier European forum for the presentation of new research results in the broadly conceived area of Information Retrieval. ECIR provides an opportunity for both young and established researchers to present research papers reporting new, unpublished, and innovative research results. ECIR has traditionally had a strong student focus and papers whose sole or main author is a postgraduate student or postdoctoral researcher are especially welcome. ECIR 2023 is planned to be held as a physical conference (with support for remote attendance) from the 2nd to the 6th of April 2023 in Dublin, Ireland.

We expect authors, PC, and the organizing committee to adhere to the ACM’s Conflict of Interest Policy and the ACM’s Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct.

Call for Papers

The European Conference on Information Retrieval is the prime European forum for the presentation of original research in the field of Information Retrieval.

ECIR 2023 is seeking original, high-quality submissions addressing innovative research in the broad field Information Retrieval. ECIR 2023 wishes to highlight significant contributions addressing the main challenges of providing effective search and retrieval, but also the related and equally important issues of multimedia and multi-modal content management, user interaction, large-scale search, machine learning, and societal and technical challenges.

Topics of Interest

ECIR 2023 encourages the submission of high-quality and original papers on the theory, experimentation, and practice of information retrieval and interaction; this primarily includes textual information but could also include visual, audio, and multi-modal information. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:

  • User aspects, including information interaction, contextualisation, personalisation, simulation, characterisation, and behaviours;
  • System and foundational aspects, including retrieval models and architectures, content analysis and classification, recommendation algorithms, query processing and ranking, efficiency and scalability;
  • Machine learning, deep learning and neural models, natural language processing, and graph models applied to information retrieval and interaction;
  • Applications, such as web search, recommender systems, web and social media apps, professional and domain-specific search, novel interfaces to search tools, intelligent search, and conversational agents;
  • Evaluation research, including new metrics and novel methods for the measurement and evaluation of retrieval systems, users, and/or applications.
  • New social and technical challenges, such as bias, ethics, fake news and hate speech, wearable devices and neuroinformatics.
