Final Call for Papers

01 Oct 2009: Paper submission deadline

We are seeking the submission of high-quality and original research papers that
have not been previously published and are not under review for another

the originality of the work, the validity of the results, chosen methodology,
writing quality and the overall contribution to the field of Information
Retrieval. ECIR has traditionally had a strong student focus. Papers whose sole
or main author is a young researcher and in particular, postgraduate student or
postdoctoral researcher are especially welcome. Poster and demo submissions
addressing any of the areas identified in the conference topics are also
invited. Authors are encouraged to demonstrate work in progress and
late-breaking research results. Papers that demonstrate a high level of research
adventure or which break out of the traditional IR paradigms are particularly
