Call for Bids: ECIR 2017
The BCS Information Retrieval Specialist Group (IRSG) has been running a successful annual conference for young researchers in Information Retrieval since 1979. Originally the event was started as a BCS-IRSG Colloquium for Information Retrieval, but now has developed into a European conference to reflect the increased popularity and importance of the event. Previously the BCS-IRSG European Conference on Information Retrieval Research (ECIR) has alternated between Britain (even years) and continental Europe (odd years). From 2012, this constraint has been removed.
The BCS-IRSG Committee is interested in hearing from bidders for organizing ECIR 2017 in a European country. ECIR 2016 is to be held in Padua. Recent ECIR events have been held in Vienna, Austria (2015), Amsterdam, The Netherlands (2014), Moscow, Russia (2013), Barcelona, Spain (2012), Dublin, Ireland (2011), Milton Keynes, UK (2010), Toulouse, France (2009), Glasgow, UK (2008), Rome, Italy (2007), London, UK (2006) and Santiago de Compostela, Spain (2005).
