Call for Papers - Special Issue of Information RetrievalInformation
Retrieval in Biomedicine - The TREC Genomics TrackWilliam Hersh and
Ellen Voorhees, Co-EditorsWe are seeking papers for a special issue of
the journal Information Retrieval devoted to work performed with the
test collections of the TREC Genomics Track. The track ran from
2003-2007 and its test collections feature a variety of tasks, including
ad hoc information retrieval, text categorization, and entity-based
question-answering. Papers can address other tasks, such as information
summarization, text mining, or information extraction, but should have
some connection to the Genomics Track or its data. 

Papers must be full-length and provide detailed descriptions of methods
and results, along with analysis.  We strongly discourage re-submission
of TREC proceedings papers. "Good" results are less important than
well-motivated and well-described experiments. As such, papers should
have, and peer reviewers will be asked to look for, the following
Well-motivated approaches to real user information problems in the
genomics domain Well-described baseline experiments with incremental
analysis of algorithms and other system features Appropriate statistical
analysis Detailed analysis of results, including failure and successHere
is the timeline for the special issue:
March 31, 2008 - papers due June 1, 2008 - results from peer review
return to authors July 1, 2008 - revised papers due August 1, 2008 -
final decisions for publications returned to authors Late 2008 -
publication of special issueIf you are able to contribute, please send
your paper to the Editorial Manager Site for the journal. Instructions
for authors can be found at the journal's Web site. If you have
questions regarding the system, contact Ms. Jacqueline Lalic.
