The annual European Conference on Information Retrieval is the premier European forum for the presentation of new research results in the field of Information Retrieval.

ECIR provides an opportunity for both young and established researchers to present research papers reporting new, unpublished, and innovative research results.

ECIR has traditionally had a strong student focus and papers whose sole or main author is a postgraduate student or postdoctoral researcher are especially welcome.

The 42nd ECIR will be held from the 14th until the 17th of April in Lisbon, Portugal.
