Call for Papers – Workshop on Gathering Efficient Assessments of Relevance

Papers are invited for submission ahead of the workshop on Gathering Efficient Assessments of Relevance (GEAR) at SIGIR 2014, 11 July 2014, Gold Coast, Australia.

The workshop will revisit how relevance assessments can be efficiently created.  A discussion and exploration of this issue will be facilitated through the presentation of results based and position papers on the topic.  Participants will also be invited to participate in a design task focusing on developing a benchmarking exercise.  

An aim of the workshop will be to provide a forum where short research papers can be presented, reporting work which may not conventionally be published in papers at formal venues, including ‘practice and experience’ papers concerning relevance assessment gathering, and position papers
concerning the concepts and issues.  Papers reporting negative results are also welcome.

Two types of paper are solicited:

  •          Short papers: 4 pages max, which present research work related to the workshop's areas of interest
  •          Position papers: 2 pages max, which present provocative ideas and challenges related to workshop's areas of interest.


Important dates: 
  • Submission deadline: April 28th, 2014
  • Notification date: May 9th, 2014
  • Camera-ready due: May 16th, 2014
  • Workshop date: July 11th, 2014

Note: all deadlines are on the date specified at midnight in the UTC-12 time zone.

Submissions should be in ACM SIG proceedings format and should be submitted through the EasyChair system.
