We are delighted to announce that ECIR 2020 will feature a new award. The award aims to recognise excellence in industrial impact, and hence to strengthen the connection and collaboration with industry. The award will be given to authors of one selected full paper from the ECIR programme. Factors that will be taken into account when selecting the candidate papers for this award include, but are not limited to, replicability, open source code, data availability, efficiency, simplicity and business value. In addition to receiving an award certificate, the recipients of the award will be presented with a monetary prize of €1000.
ECIR will continue to feature this award at least until 2022.
