The 39th European Conference on Information Retrieval (ECIR 2017) (http://www.ecir2017.org/) will take place in Aberdeen, Scotland from 8 – 13 April 2017. ECIR is the main European forum for the presentation of new research results in the field of Information Retrieval (IR).
ECIR 2017 encourages the submission of high quality research papers reporting original and previously unpublished results. With the rapidly increasing amount of data produced at present, and the increasing adoption of IR techniques beyond the traditional search for documents, papers on IR applied to real-life information problems (e.g., eScience, the Internet of Things, User behaviours and analyses etc.) are particularly encouraged.
ECIR has a strong student focus, hence papers whose sole or main author is a postgraduate student or a postdoctoral researcher are especially welcome. Through the Doctoral Consortium, PhD students can introduce their current work and receive advice and feedback from members of the IR Community.
