Poster presentations offer researchers an opportunity to present significant work in progress or research that is best communicated in an interactive or graphical format. Poster presentations further provide researchers with an opportunity to obtain direct feedback about their work from a wide audience during the poster session.
Poster submissions are welcomed in areas related to any aspect of Information Retrieval (IR) as identified in the call for contributions. Posters should focus on problems and methodology of the presented research. Submissions describing the work will be reviewed and the ones accepted will be published in the conference proceedings.
Submissions of extended abstracts for posters must be in English and should not exceed 2 pages in SIGIR format (including references and figures). Suitable LaTeX and Word templates for SIGIR are available from the ACM Website (for LaTeX, use “Option 2”).
The only accepted format for submissions is PDF. As with full papers, authors should conceal their identity where it is practical to do so. Poster paper submissions that are over the 2-page limit or are not anonymous will be rejected without review. Poster papers must be submitted electronically at the poster track of the conference submission system.
All submissions must be in English.
Demonstrations present first-hand experience with research prototypes or operational systems. They provide opportunities to exchange ideas gained from implementing IR systems and to obtain feedback from expert users. Demonstration submissions are welcomed in any of the areas identified in the call for papers. One-page demonstration abstracts will appear in the conference proceedings.
Submissions must be in English and consist of an extended abstract (one page in SIGIR format including references and figures) and an additional one-page requirements description.
The only accepted format for submissions is PDF. Templates for SIGIR submissions are available from the ACM Website (for LaTeX, use the “Option 2” style). This is also the style that will be required for final papers.
Unlike posters and research papers, authors of demonstration proposals are not expected to take measures to conceal their identity from reviewers.
Demonstration proposals must be submitted by February 12, 2010. Demonstration papers must be submitted electronically via the demonstration track of the conference submission system. The submissions will undergo peer review. At least one author should register and attend the conference.
