Final Call for FULL Papers / Important Notice

SIGIR 2013, Dublin, Ireland, 28 July-1 August, 2013



IMPORTANT: Regular contributors to SIGIR 2013, please note changes to SIGIR
2013 for authors, as outlined below.

SIGIR is the major international forum for the presentation of new research
results and for the demonstration of new systems and techniques in the broad
field of information retrieval (IR). The Conference and Program Chairs invite
all those working in areas related to IR to submit original full papers, short
papers, and proposals for tutorials, workshops, and demonstrations of systems.
SIGIR 2013 welcomes contributions related to any aspect of IR theory and
foundation, techniques, and applications. Relevant topics include, but are not
limited to: 

- Document Representation and Content Analysis (e.g., text representation,
document structure, linguistic analysis, multi-lingual IR, cross-lingual IR,
NLP for IR, information extraction, sentiment analysis, clustering,
classification, topic models, facets, text streams) 

- Queries and Query Analysis (e.g., query representation, query suggestion,
query reformulation, query intent, conversational search, query log analysis,
session analysis, question answering)

- Users and Interactive IR (e.g., user models, user studies, user feedback,
search interface, summarization, task models, personalized search) 

- Retrieval Models and Ranking (e.g., IR theory, language models, probabilistic
retrieval models, feature-based models, learning to rank, combining searches,

- Search Engine Architectures and Scalability ( e.g., indexing, compression,
distributed IR, P2P IR, mobile devices) 

- Filtering and Recommending (e.g., content-based filtering, collaborative
filtering, recommender systems, profiles) 

- Evaluation (e.g., test collections, effectiveness measures, experimental

- Web IR and Social Media Search (e.g., link analysis, click models/behavioural
modelling, social tagging, social network analysis, advertising and search,
blog search, microblog search, forum search, community-based QA (CQA),
adversarial IR, vertical and local search) 

- IR and Structured Data (e.g., XML search, ranking in databases, desktop
search, entity search) 

- Multimedia IR (e.g., image search, video search, speech/audio search, music

- Other Applications (e.g., digital libraries, enterprise search, genomics IR,
legal IR, patent search, text reuse)

We'd like to draw your attention to a few changes at SIGIR 2013 for

(1) The full paper track (10 pages) will introduce a new review
criterion, *Reproducibility of Methods*, in addition to the criteria traditionally used at

The full set of review criteria can be found in the FULL PAPER REVIEW CRITERIA
section below. 

Also, visit the following pages:



(2) Along with the full paper track, we will have a short paper (4 pages) and
demo paper (2 pages) tracks.

Note that SIGIR previously had posters (2 pages) and demo papers (1 page).
Visit this page for details:



Relevance to SIGIR: Is the work presented within the scope of SIGIR?

Originality of Work: Does the work describe a unique problem? Does the work
propose a creative solution to an old problem? Is there similar prior

Technical Soundness: Are the algorithms and methods used correct? Is the
experimental design appropriate? Are the experiments and analyses thorough? Are
appropriate statistical tests used?

Quality of Presentation: Are the ideas, methods, results and discussions
presented clearly? Is the paper structure appropriate? Is the paper written in
good English?

Impact of Ideas or Results: Will this research change practice? Will this work
be cited? Will this work generate additional research?

Adequacy of Citations: Are the authors aware of relevant prior art? Do the
authors provide a good overview of it? Is the citation list unbiased?

Reproducibility of Methods: Are the descriptions of the methods used detailed
and accurate? Given the resources used in the paper, or (if they are
unavailable) similar resources, could researchers carry out similar experiments
to verify the results? What further description could the authors
