Call for Workshop Proposals

The 33rd Annual ACM SIGIR Conference
19-23 July 2010, Geneva, Switzerland

Proposals are solicited for one-day workshops to be held as part of the
SIGIR Conference on July 23, 2010. Topics should match those identified in
the SIGIR general call for participation.

SIGIR workshops provide a platform for presenting novel ideas in a less
formal and possibly more focused way than the conference itself. The format
of each workshop is to be determined by the organizers, but it is expected
that workshops will contain ample time for general discussion and
engagement by all participants - not just those presenting papers.
Workshops that foster collaboration, discussion, and group problem-solving
are encouraged. Workshops that only involve the presentation of papers are

Researchers and practitioners from all segments of the information
retrieval community are invited to submit proposals for review. The
organizers of approved workshops are expected to define the workshop's
focus, gather and review submissions, and decide upon final program
content. Organizers (including co-organizers) are expected to attend their
entire workshop and to provide an article for the SIGIR Forum summarizing
the event.

Submission Guidelines:

Submissions describing proposed workshops should include:
1. The theme and purpose of the workshop.
2. Motivation for the workshop and appropriateness to SIGIR.
3. Planned activities and a tentative schedule of events.
4. Selection process for participants and/or presenters and maximum
number of participants (if limited).
5. Names of potential program committee members (if a program
committee will be formed).

If the workshop has been held previously at SIGIR or another conference,
then the organizers should indicate this and describe briefly past
attendance and outcomes, and why another workshop is needed.

The submission should also include a short biographical sketch for each
organizer, describing relevant qualifications and experience.

Proposals should be in PDF format and not exceed 1000 words. Proposals
should be emailed to the 2010 SIGIR Workshop Co-chairs, Omar Alonso
(oralonsogmail.com) and Giambattista Amati (gbafub.it)

Important Dates:

January 29, 2010: Workshop Proposals Due
March 04, 2010: Notifications Sent
July 19-23, 2010: SIGIR Conference (workshops to be held on July 23, 2010)
