        Subject: Second CfP: 35th European Conference on Information Retrieval (ECIR'13)

35th European Conference on Information Retrieval (ECIR 2013)
Moscow, Russia, 24-27 March 2013

- Four weeks to go for full papers---please submit your abstract timely!
- Open for submissions at http://www.conftool.pro/ecir2013/

Important dates:
-  1 Oct 2012: full paper abstract deadline
-  8 Oct 2012: full paper deadline
- 22 Oct 2012: posters/demos deadline
- 30 Nov 2012: notification of acceptance

Call for Papers

The conference encourages the submission of high-quality research papers 
reporting original and innovative research in Information Retrieval. 
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.  We accept not only full-papers, but also poster and demo 
short papers.  Posters should present work in progress or leading-edge 
work.  Demo papers should describe first-hand experiences with research 
prototype systems.

ECIR has traditionally had a strong student focus, and papers whose sole 
or main author is a postgraduate student or postdoctoral researcher are 
especially welcome.  Papers that demonstrate a high level of research 
adventure or which break out of the traditional IR paradigms are also 
particularly welcome.

All submissions must be written in English following the LNCS author 
guidelines and submitted electronically through the conference 
submission system.  Full papers must not exceed 12 pages including 
references and figures.  Poster and Demo papers must not be longer than 
4 pages.  Accepted papers will have to be presented at the conference. 
Posters and demonstrations will be presented at a special posters and 
demonstrations session.  All submissions will be refereed.  Papers and 
posters will undergo double-blind peer review, so authors should take 
reasonable care not identify themselves in their submissions.  Demo 
submissions are not anonymous and should preferably contain a link to an 
online demo.

Full papers, posters and demos submissions in PDF conforming to the LNCS 
style can be submitted at http://www.conftool.pro/ecir2013/
