The 38th Annual ACM SIGIR Conference

SIGIR Farewell

Dear all,


    Thanks for attending SIGIR 2015 in Chile and helping us to make the conference a success. I hope your overall experience, both technically and socially, was worth it and you had a good trip back home. Soon we will publish hundreds of pictures that we took during the event.


    We also hope to see you next year at SIGIR 2016 in Pisa and that you will join us to beat the record that we just set last week on the largest number of IR researchers dancing together!

We are happy to welcome SIGIR 2015 to Santiago de Chile.

SIGIR is the major international forum for the presentation of new research results and for the demonstration of new systems and techniques in information retrieval.

At a time of exceptional growth in the importance of search technologies, the world's leading information retrieval experts from academia and industry will converge on Santiago from 9th to 13th August for SIGIR 2015.

The conference consists of five days of papers, posters, tutorials, workshops and demonstrations focused on research and development in the area of IR, as well as social events at Santiago.

SIGIR publishes original, high-quality papers related to information retrieval. SIGIR 2015 welcomes contributions related to any aspect of IR theory and foundation, techniques, and applications.

Chile is a long country with approximately 17 millions inhabitants.

The capital, Santiago de Chile, is connected to the world by many airlines offering regular flights. Santiago lies at the foot of the highest segment of the Andes, covering an area of 15,500 sq km, and being the home to over 6 million people.

We look forward to welcoming you to Santiago!
