------------------------------

The 13th meeting of the Forum for Information Retrieval Evaluation 2021
will be a virtual conference. Given the current COVID-19 situation all the
presentations will be conducted virtually. We are seeking the submission of
high-quality and original paper. Submissions will be reviewed by experts on
the basis of the originality of the work, the validity of the results,
chosen methodology, writing quality and the overall contribution to the
field of IR. Authors are encouraged to describe work in progress and
late-breaking research results.

Program Committee members: http://fire.irsi.res.in/fire/2021/organization


*Topics of interest include, but are not limited to*

   1. Search and Ranking: Research on core algorithmic topics in IR:
      - Queries and query analysis (e.g., Query understanding, query
      reformulation, query representation etc.)
      - Retrieval models and ranking (e.g., Cross lingual IR, ranking
      algorithms, language models, retrieval algorithms, learning to rank etc)
      - Efficiency and scalability (e.g., distributed search, search engine
      architecture, indexing, crawling etc)
   2. Domain Specific: Research on domain specific IR:
      - Applications in Social Media (e.g., Hate speech recognition, social
      network in search etc.)
      - Applications in Finance (e.g., Stock market prediction, other
      applications in finance)
      - Applications in Legal (e.g., Patent discovery, verdict
      summarization, other applications in law)
      - Applications in Health (e.g., Biomedical IR, medicine, genomics,
      other applications in health)
      - Other applications and domains
   3. Recommendation Systems: Research on Recommendation systems, content
   representation and content analysis:
      - Recommendation algorithms (e.g., Content based filtering,
      collaborative filtering etc.)
      - Document representation and analysis (e.g., Summarization, text
      representation, sentiment analysis etc.)
      - Knowledge acquisition (e.g., Information extraction, event
      extraction etc.)
   4. Artificial Intelligence in IR: Research bridging the gap between AI
   and IR:
      - Core AI (e.g., Deep learning in IR, embedding schemes etc)
      - Question answering
      - Conversational systems
      - Machine Translation
   5. Evaluation: Research on evaluation of IR systems:
      - User centric evaluation (e.g., User experience, user engagement etc)
      - System centric evaluation (e.g., Evaluation metrics)


*Important dates*
15th July 2021 Paper submission link available
31st August 2021 Paper submission deadline
30th October 2021 Paper acceptance notification
10th November 2021 Camera ready copy submission deadline
13th-17th December 2021 Virtual conference

Note: All submission deadlines are 11:59 PM AoE Time Zone (Anywhere on
Earth).


*Submission Guidelines*

Submissions must describe substantial, original and unpublished work.
Wherever appropriate, concrete evaluation and analysis must be included. If
the paper being submitted is under review at any other venue, the same
should be explicitly mentioned when making the submission. Such a paper, if
accepted, should be withdrawn from all other places.


*Paper Template and Submission*

The submitted papers must follow ACM SIG's template available on
https://www.acm.org/publications/taps/word-template-workflow
<https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template> . The only accepted
format of submissions is PDF. Papers which do not conform to the
requirements may get rejected without review. Please note that it is the
responsibility of the authors to ensure that the PDF submission has been
uploaded successfully (we suggest that you try downloading your paper again
yourself, to check).


*Paper Length*

The maximum page length is 9 pages in content with unrestricted space for
references. And minimum page length is 2 pages in content with unrestricted
space for references. This year we are not making any distinction between
long and short papers. More time will be allocated for longer papers during
the presentation.


*Paper Review Policy*

All submissions to FIRE 2021 will be reviewed on the basis of originality,
relevance, importance and clarity by at least two reviewers. The review
process will be double blind and the authors should not mention their names
or institutional details anywhere in the paper. Authors should refer to
themselves in third person when citing their own work. Expressions like "In
our earlier work..." or "We previously showed that..." should be avoided
when submitting the paper for review.


*Presentation Requirements*

If accepted, at least one author will have to register for the conference
and present their work virtually. The author can also send their
prerecorded presentation video but should be available for question answer
session at the end of the presentation.
