EVIA 2017 CALL FOR PAPERS

We invite submissions for the Eighth International Workshop on Evaluating Information Access (EVIA 2017) which will be held in conjunction with NTCIR 13 in Tokyo, Japan, on December 5, 2017. Information Access technologies provide the interface between human information needs and digital information resources. The reliable evaluation of these technologies has been recognized for decades as central to the advancement of the field. As information retrieval technologies become more pervasive, the forms of retrieval more diverse, and retrieval tools richer, the importance of effective, efficient, and innovative evaluation grows as well.

We invite both short papers (2-4 pages) and long papers (8-10 pages) addressing one or more of the following topics, as well as any other topic related to the evaluation of information access:

- Test collection formation, evaluation metrics, and evaluation environments
- Statistical issues in information retrieval evaluation
- User studies and the evaluation of human-computer interaction in information retrieval (HCIR)
- Evaluation methods for multilingual, multimedia, or mobile information access
- Novel information access tasks and their evaluation
- Evaluation and assessment using implicit user feedback, crowdsourcing, living labs, or inferential methods
- Evaluation issues in industrial and enterprise retrieval systems
- Reproducibility issues in information retrieval evaluation

Submissions must be in English, in PDF format, and must use standard ACM SIGIR templates, which are available for both LaTeX and Word from the ACM website. Papers must report work that is not previously published, not accepted for publication elsewhere, and not currently under review elsewhere. Submissions should not contain any author identification and should be submitted electronically via the conference submission system.
