SF Bayarea Machine Learning Message Board › SIGIR 2012 Call for Industry Track Proposals
San Francisco, CA
This year’s SIGIR conference will include an Industry Track, following very successful events at SIGIR in recent years. The Industry Track will be held on Wednesday, 15th August 2012, during the regular conference program, and in parallel with the technical tracks.
The Industry Track's objectives are three-fold. The first objective is to present the state of the art in search and search-related areas, delivered as keynote talks by influential technical leaders from the search industry. The second objective of the Industry Track is the presentation of interesting, novel and innovative ideas related to information retrieval. Finally, a highly-interactive panel session will conclude the track, topic to be announced.
Industry authors are invited to prepare proposals for presenting interesting, novel and innovative IR ideas.
