*Conference Coverage:*

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
papers for review. SIGIR 2015 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 (text representation,
   document structure, linguistic analysis, NLP for IR, cross- and
   multi-lingual IR, information extraction, sentiment analysis, clustering,
   classification, topic models, facets, text streams)
   - Queries and Query Analysis (query intent, query suggestion and
   prediction, query representation and reformulation, query log analysis,
   conversational search and dialogue, spoken queries, summarization, question
   - Retrieval Models and Ranking (IR theory, language models,
   probabilistic retrieval models, learning to rank, combining searches,
   diversity and aggregated search)
   - Search Engine Architectures and Scalability (indexing, compression,
   distributed IR, P2P IR, mobile IR, cloud IR)
   - Users and Interactive IR (user studies, user and task models,
   interaction analysis, session analysis, exploratory search, personalized
   search, social and collaborative search, search interface, whole session
   - Filtering and Recommending (content-based filtering, collaborative
   filtering, recommender systems)
   - Evaluation (test collections, experimental design, effectiveness
   measures, session-based evaluation, simulation)
   - Web IR and Social Media Search (link analysis, click models/behavioral
   modeling, social tagging, social network analysis, blog and microblog
   search, forum search, community-based QA, adversarial IR and spam, vertical
   and local search)
   - IR and Structured Data (XML search, ranking in databases, desktop
   search, entity search)
   - Multimedia IR (image search, video search, speech/audio search, music
   - Search applied to the Internet of Things (billions of devices,
   sensors, and actuators are now connected to the Web, which will affect how
   people search and browse the Web)
   - Other Applications (digital libraries, enterprise search, genomics IR,
   legal IR, patent search, text reuse, new retrieval problems)

The conference consists of five days of papers, posters, tutorials,
workshops and demonstrations focused on research and development in the
area of IR, as well as social events at Santiago.

SIGIR publishes original, high-quality papers related to information
retrieval. SIGIR 2015 welcomes contributions related to any aspect of IR
theory and foundation, techniques, and applications.
