Annual ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval
The ACM SIGIR Conference focuses on research and development in information retrieval. It is the major international forum for the presentation of new research and the demonstration of new systems and techniques in the broad field of information retrieval.
ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries
JCDL is a major international forum focusing on digital libraries and associated technical, practical, and social issues. It encompasses the many meanings of the term “digital libraries”, including new forms of information institutions; operational information systems with all manner of digital content; new means of selecting, collecting, organizing, and distributing digital content; and theoretical models of information media, including document genres and electronic publishing. The JCDL conference is held annually, usually in the USA though on occasion it has been held in Canada or conjoined with the European DL conference, TPDL, or the Asian DL conference, ICADL.
Annual ACM Conference on Information and Knowledge Management
The Conference on Information and Knowledge Management seeks to identify challenging problems facing the development of future knowledge and information systems, and to shape future directions of research by soliciting and reviewing high quality, applied and theoretical research findings. An important part of the conference are its workshops which focus on timely research challenges and initiatives.
ACM International Conference on Web Search and Web Data Mining
WSDM (pronounced “wisdom”) is one of the premier conferences covering research in the areas of search and data mining on the Web. WSDM publishes original, high-quality papers related to search and data mining on the Web and the Social Web, with an emphasis on practical but principled novel models of search, retrieval and data mining, algorithm design and analysis, economic implications, and in-depth experimental analysis of accuracy and performance.
International Conference on the Theory of Information Retrieval
The International Conference on the Theory of Information Retrieval (ICTIR) is the premier conference of theoretical information retrieval, covering a broad spectrum of diverse research areas that are concerned with mathematical/formal aspects of IR, including foundational issues, description or integration of models, retrieval applications, mathematical/formal techniques, existing and/or new theories and theoretical aspects.
ACM SIGIR Conference on Human Information Interaction and Retrieval
CHIIR (pronounced “cheer”) provides a forum for the dissemination and discussion of research on the user-centered aspects of information interaction and information retrieval. The conference focuses on elements such as human involvement in search activities, and information seeking and use in context. CHIIR is a merger of two successful events: the Information Interaction in Context conference (IIiX) and the Human Computer Information Retrieval symposium (HCIR). CHIIR builds upon the combined strengths of these events, emphasizing human interaction with information, information seeking contexts, and user-centered approaches to information retrieval, access, and use. CHIIR also publishes related research on human-human information interaction, novel interaction paradigms, and new evaluation methodologies. Research on information interaction and retrieval that draws upon work in areas such as sociology, ethnography, psychology, and human-computer interaction is also welcome at CHIIR.
