The 32nd annual ACM SIGIR conference will be held this summer, July

presentation of new research results and the demonstration of new  
systems and techniques in the broad field of information retrieval.   
SIGIR will be held in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, at the Sheraton  
Boston Hotel and at Northeastern University.

SIGIR will begin with a day of tutorials on Sunday, July 19.  The main  
technical program will follow on Monday, July 20, through Wednesday,
