CALL FOR PAPERS: ECIR 2012 
34th European Conference on Information Retrieval 
Barcelona, Spain, 1-5 April 2012

Papers submission deadline: 2 October 2011 
Poster/Demos submission deadline: 16 October 2011 
Notification: 27 November 2011 

Call for Papers 



The Conference encourages the submission of high-quality research papers reporting original and innovative research within Information Retrieval. The conference intends to cover all aspects of accessing digital information with or without explicitly specified semantics. Papers solely or mainly authored by a student are especially welcome. Submissions will be reviewed by experts on the basis of the originality of the work, the validity of the results, chosen methodology, writing quality and the overall contribution to the field of Information Retrieval. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the areas listed below. 

The ECIR 2012 conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Authors are invited to submit their paper on or before October 2nd 2011 and for authors of posters or demos the due date is October 16th 2011. 

All paper submissions must be written in English following the LNCS author guidelines . Papers must not exceed 12 pages including references and figures (shorter papers are welcomed). Accepted papers will have to be presented at the conference. Posters must not be longer than 4 pages. Posters and demonstrations will be presented at a special posters and demonstrations session. 





All papers will be refereed through double-blind peer review so authors should take reasonable care not identify themselves in their submissions. The proceedings will be distributed to all delegates at the conference.
