SIGIR is the major international forum for the presentation of new research results and for the demonstration of new systems and techniques in the broad field of Information Retrieval (IR). SIGIR 2015 will include a full day of tutorials on August 9. SIGIR 2015 solicits proposals for both half and full-day tutorials covering topics relevant to the field of information retrieval and its applications. Each tutorial should cover a single topic in depth. For example, tutorials may cover an established information retrieval sub-topic (e.g. query understanding), introduce an emerging application of information retrieval technologies (e.g., mobile user engagement), or update the information retrieval community on recent advances in related fields (e.g., LDA and its applications to IR).
Submissions should include a cover sheet and an extended abstract.
The cover sheet should include the following elements
The extended abstract (no longer than 4 pages) should include the following sections
Tutorial proposals should be prepared in standard ACM format available from the ACM Conference site (see http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates - for LaTeX, use Option 2), and submitted in pdf format to email@example.com
