Call for Papers for CLEF 2014

Submissions are invited for CLEF 2014: Conference and Labs of the Evaluation Forum, Information Access Evaluation meets Multilinguality, Multimodality, and Visualization which takes place in Sheffield from 15 to 18 September 2014. 

Papers are welcomed on all aspects of Information Access in any modality and language. This is the 15th year of the CLEF initiative as a forum for Information Access Evaluation, with special attention to multimodality and multilinguality.

All submissions to the CLEF main conference will be reviewed on the basis of relevance, originality, importance, and clarity. CLEF welcomes papers that describe rigorous hypothesis testing regardless
of whether the results are positive or negative. Methods are expected to be written so that they are reproducible by others, and the logic of the research design is clearly described in the paper. The
conference proceedings will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).

Authors are invited to submit electronically original papers, which have not been published and are not under consideration elsewhere, using the LNCS proceedings format.

Two types of papers are solicited:
  • Long papers: 12 pages max. Aimed to report complete research works.
  • Short papers: 6 pages max. Position papers, new evaluation proposals, developments and applications.

Papers will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 members of the program committee. Selection will be based on originality, clarity, and
technical quality. Papers should be submitted in PDF format here.

Key dates:

  • Submission of Papers:                 April 28 2014
