ACM SIGIR is the major international forum for the presentation of new research results and for the demonstration of new systems and techniques for Information Retrieval (IR). SIGIR 2015 will be held in Santiago, Chile on 9-13 August 2015. The Conference and Program Chairs invite all those working in areas related to IR to submit original proposals for demonstrations.
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. Accepted demonstration submissions will appear in the conference proceedings.
What makes a good demo?
A good demonstration submission is interesting to a SIGIR audience and shows a novel solution to a problem. The demonstration submission should address the following questions: What problem does my system solve? Who is my target user? What does my demonstration do and how does it work? How does it compare with existing systems? Finally, how and when will my technology have an impact? Demonstration submissions are welcome in any of the areas related to aspects of Information Retrieval (IR), as identified in the call for papers on the SIGIR website.
