                             CALL FOR PAPERS
 
                                SIGIR '97
 
              20th International ACM SIGIR Conference on
          Research and Development in Information Retrieval
 
               DoubleTree Hotel, Philadelphia, PA, USA
 
                       July 27 -- July 31, 1997
 
                        In co-operation with:
     BCS-IRSG (UK), GI (Germany), IPSJ (Japan), (others pending)
 
 
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
 
     SIGIR '97 is the twentieth conference in the premier series of
research conferences on information retrieval.  SIGIR is the major
forum for the presentation of new research results, and for the
demonstration of new systems and techniques, in information retrieval.
The conference attracts a broad range of professionals including
theoreticians, developers, publishers, researchers, educators, and
designers of systems, interfaces, information bases, and related
applications.  In 1997, SIGIR is collocated with DL '97, the Second
ACM International Conference on Digital Libraries, which will be held
July 23-26, 1997 in Philadelphia.  We anticipate substantial synergy
between these two meetings.
 
 
CALL FOR PAPERS
 
     SIGIR '97 seeks original contributions (i.e. never before
published) in the broad field of information storage and retrieval,
covering the handling of all types of information, people's behavior
in information systems, and theories, models and implementations of
information retrieval systems.
 
     We encourage discussions of experimental studies, tests of
usability, explorations of information retrieval behavior, reports on
the performance of large scale systems, and demonstrations of advanced
approaches. We prefer theoretical contributions to have sufficient
proof of utility to demonstrate their applicability to information
retrieval problems. Similarly, reports on small scale experiments
should include convincing arguments or simulations to show their
likelihood of generalization.
 
 
TOPICS
 
Topics include, but are not limited to:
 
  --Information Retrieval Theory, e.g.: Statistical and Logical
Retrieval Models, Data Fusion, Human-Centered Information Retrieval
Systems.
 
  --User Interaction and Behavior, e.g.: Models of Information
Seeking, Interface Design and Experiment, Visualization.
 
  --Multimedia Information Retrieval, e.g.: Audio, Video, and Image
Retrieval, Links, Composite Documents.
 
  --Experimentation, e.g.: Test Collections, Evaluation Measures.
 
  --Natural Language Processing, e.g.: Multilingual Retrieval Systems,
Summarization, Dialogue Management, Use of Linguistic Resources for
Information Retrieval.
 
  --Systems and Implementation Issues, e.g.: Integration with Database
Systems, Networked Systems and the Internet, Compression, Efficient
Query Evaluation.
 
  --Applications, e.g.: Task-Embedded Information Retrieval, Electronic
Publishing, Digital Libraries.
 
 
INSTRUCTIONS FOR CONTRIBUTORS
 
     Submissions to SIGIR '97 may be completed papers, or can be
proposals for posters, panels, demonstrations, tutorials, or
workshops.  With the exception of papers and posters, submissions may
be made via e-mail (plain ASCII text). All submissions should include
complete contact information including mail address, telephone, fax,
and e-mail.
 
 
PAPERS
 
     Papers (4 copies) should be submitted in English to the Program
Co-Chair responsible for the geographic region of the first author, as
indicated below.  Papers should contain at most 5000 words.  The first
page must contain the title of the paper and an abstract of not more
than 150 words, but no indication as to the author(s) or their
affiliation(s). In addition, authors must provide a separate cover
page with the title, the author name(s), and the author
affiliation(s), plus complete contact information (mailing address,
telephone, fax, and e-mail) for the author to whom correspondence
should be sent. Please indicate if the paper is to be considered for
the Best Student Paper Award. This Award requires that the first and
primary author be a fulltime student at time of submission.  There
will also be a Best Non-Student Paper Award presented.
 
 
TUTORIALS
 
     SIGIR '97 will begin with a full day of tutorials, each of which
should cover a single topic in detail.  Proposals are solicited for
tutorials of either a half day (3 hours plus breaks) or full day (6
hours plus breaks).  Submissions should be made to the Tutorials Chair
and should include a cover sheet and an extended abstract.  The cover
sheet should specify (1) the length of the tutorial; (2) the intended
audience (introductory, intermediate, advanced); (3) complete contact
information for the contact person and other presenters; and (4) brief
biographies (max. 2 paragraphs) of the presenters.  The extended
abstract should be 3 to 5 pages, and should include an outline of the
tutorial, along with descriptions of the course objectives and course
materials.
 
 
PANELS
 
     Proposals for panel sessions should be sent to the Panels Chair
by prospective moderators.  Panels should address issues of interest
to the general information retrieval community, and should be designed
to stimulate lively debate between panelists and audience.  Panel
proposals (2-3 pages) must include: (1) complete contact information
for the moderator; (2) the rationale for addressing this topic as a
panel; (3) the names and affiliations of the panel members; and (4) a
description of how the panel will be structured, with emphasis on how
general participation will be encouraged.  Abstracts of panel
presentations will appear in the proceedings.
 
 
DEMONSTRATIONS
 
     Demonstrations provide an opportunity for first-hand experience
with information retrieval systems, whether advanced operational
systems or research prototypes.  Proposals (up to 3 pages) should be
submitted to the Demonstrations Chair. The proposal should indicate
how the demonstration will illustrate new ideas, and should describe
the technical specifications of the system. The hardware, software,
and network requirements for the demonstration, including the
electrical requirements of the equipment, should be indicated.  A list
of demonstrations will be published in the proceedings.
 
 
POSTERS
 
     SIGIR '97 poster presentations offer researchers an opportunity
to present late-breaking results, significant work in progress, or
research that is best communicated in an interactive or graphical
format. Abstracts of posters will appear in the conference
proceedings, and there will be a Best Poster Award.  Three copies of
an extended abstract (roughly 3-4 pages) should be submitted to the
Posters Chair. The abstract should emphasize the research problem and
the methods being used, and be headed only by the title of the
poster. In addition, a separate cover page is required containing the
title of the poster, along with the name and affiliation of the
author(s), and complete contact information for the author to whom
correspondence should be sent.
 
 
WORKSHOPS
 
     Proposals are solicited from individuals and groups for one-day
workshops to be held July 31, 1997.  Submissions of up to 3 pages
should be made to the {\bf Conference Chair}. They should include the
theme and goal of the workshop, the planned activities, the maximum
number of participants and the selection process, and a list of
potential participants. Also include a CV for each organizer detailing
relevant qualifications and experience.  After the workshop,
organizers are to provide an article summarizing the workshop for
SIGIR Forum.
