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.
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:
The Short Paper Track calls for original contributions presenting novel, thought-provoking ideas and addressing innovative application areas within the field of Information Retrieval. The inclusion of promising (preliminary) results is encouraged but not required. Papers that stimulate and promote discussion are particularly encouraged.
Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word (to be found at https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines), for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers (https://www.springer.com/gp/authors-editors/orcid).
All submissions must be written in English. All papers should be submitted electronically through the EasyChair submission system (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ecir23).
In addition, the corresponding author of each accepted paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the paper has been submitted, changes relating to its authorship cannot be made.
Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. The proceedings will be distributed to all delegates at the conference. Accepted papers will have to be presented at the conference – and at least one author will be required to register. ECIR intends to publish the proceedings as open access if sufficient funding is acquired.
Papers submitted to ECIR 2022 should be substantially different from papers that have been previously published, or accepted for publication, or that are under review at other venues. Exceptions to this rule are:
ECIR 2023 expects authors (as well as the PC, and the organizing committee) to adhere to accepted standards on ethics and professionalism, such as:
