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 (http://www.sigir2010.org/).
Topics should match those identified in the SIGIR general call for

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 discouraged.

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. Mames 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

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
(oralonso at gmail.com) and Giambattista Amati (gba at fub.it)
