Plus d'informations


CIRCLE 2022 welcomes both theoretical and experimental papers on core IR and papers on connections between IR and close disciplines including but not limited to natural language understanding and information extraction. Relevant topics include, but are not restricted to:

  • Search and ranking : Research on core IR algorithmic topics, including IR at scale
  • Content analysis, recommendation and classification : Research focusing on recommender systems, rich content representations and content analysis
  • Content analysis, recommendation and classification : Research focusing on recommender systems, rich content representations and content analysis
  • Domain-specific applications : Research focusing on domain-specific IR challenges
  • Artificial intelligence, semantics and dialog : Research bridging AI and IR, especially toward deep semantics and dialog with intelligent agents, covering topics such as:
  • Human factors and interfaces : Research into user-centric aspects of IR, including user interfaces, behavior modeling, privacy, and interactive systems, covering topics such as:
  • Evaluation : Research that focuses on the measurement and evaluation of IR systems
  • IR architectures : Research dealing with IR system architectures and scalability
  • Future directions : Research with theoretical or empirical contributions on new technical or social aspects of IR, especially in more speculative directions or with emerging technologies


Authors are invited to submit one of the following types of contributions:

  • Long original papers (from 6 to 9 pages including references) describing mature and original research results
  • Short original papers (from 3 to 5 pages including references) which typically discuss exciting new work that is not yet mature enough for a long paper, such as for example “doctoral papers”. In particular, novel but significant proposals will be considered for acceptance into this category despite not having gone through sufficient experimental validation or lacking strong theoretical foundation.
  • Resource and demo papers (from 3 to 7 pages including references). A resource paper describes IR test collections software tools made available to the IR research community. Demo papers showcasing new technologies and prototypes in the cope of CIRCLE
  • Extended abstracts (up to 3 pages including references) containing descriptions of ongoing projects or presenting already published results

Manuscripts should be submitted to CIRCLE'22’s Easychair site ( . More details on the conference web pages. Each accepted paper will be orally presented and will be part of the proceedings which will be sent to for online publication.
