SIGIR 2015, August 13, Santiago

Submissions due: June 1 (any timezone).

* Final Call for Papers

Information on the Web is increasingly structured in terms of entities 
and relations from large knowledge resources, geo-temporal references 
and social network structure, resulting in a massive multidimensional 
graph. This graph essentially unifies both the searcher and the 
information resources that played a fundamentally different role in 
traditional IR, and offers major new ways to access relevant 
information. In services that rely on personalized information like 
social networks, the graph plays an even more important role, in other 
words: _you_ are the query.

We view the notion of `graph search' as searching information from your 
personal point of view (you are the query) over a highly structured and 
curated information space. This goes beyond the traditional two-term 
queries and ten blue links results that users are familiar with, 
requiring a highly interactive session covering both query formulation 
and result exploration, and raises many open questions.

* We Need Your Help!

Help us shape the future of information access by increasing the depth 
of analysis of today's systems:

- Submit a short 3+1-page research or position paper explaining your key 
wishes or key points,

- and take actively part in the discussion at the Workshop.

What's a 3+1 page paper?  We like short and focused contributions 
highlighting your main point, claim, observation, finding, experiment, 
project, etc, (roughly 3 pages of mainly text) but we also like clear 
tables, graphs, and full citations (that's the "+1" page). So your 
submission can up three pages, as long as max. 3 of them are narrative text.

The deadline is Monday June 1, 2015, further submission details are on 
http://humanities.uva.nl/~kamps/gsb15/

We are looking forward to a productive, stimulating and fruitful 
workshop day -- including an social event -- come join the discussion!
