The 23rd China Conference on Information Retrieval (CCIR2017)
Call for Papers

Shanghai, China, July 13th to 14th, 2017

The 23rd China Conference on Information Retrieval (CCIR 2017), co-organized by the Chinese Information Processing Society of China (CIPS) and the Chinese Computer Federation (CCF), will be hosted by the East China University of Science and Technology in Shanghai, China on July 13th to 14th. CCIR serves as the major forum for researchers and practitioners from both China and other Asian Countries/Regions to share their ideas, present new research results and demonstrate new systems and techniques in the broad field of information retrieval (IR).

CCIR 2017 will include abundant academic activities. Besides keynote speeches delivered by world renowned scientists from China and abroad, traditional paper presentation session and poster session, we also continue to host the evaluation workshop on text sentiment analysis. The conference also contains doctoral mentoring forums, young scientist forum, and tutorials on frontier research topics. We will invite authors in related international conference (such as SIGIR, WWW, WSDM, CIKM) to share their research results as well. To make more effective communication between attendees convenient, the conference will adopt single session mechanism, make use of the social media for online communication and broadcast part of the event live.

CCIR 2017 invites the submission of original research papers either in Chinese or in English. We welcome original and innovative technical papers on concepts, algorithms, systems, standards, testing & evaluation, applications, and industrial case studies related to information retrieval.
