Participants are required to submit a paper describing their research.
Workshop submissions may be up to 4 pages long in the SIGIR conference format http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html
(Option 2, if using LaTeX). Papers should be submitted as PDF files via email to Bill Kules at email@example.com by Friday August 22, 2008 (midnight US Pacific time).
Papers may describe completed work, work in progress, or the author's position on one or more of the workshop themes. Paper submissions based on previously published work are permitted. We will be creating a set of working notes containing all accepted position papers. Copies of these notes will be distributed to attendees. We do not plan to create an archival publication of the working notes.
A subset of the accepted papers will be selected for oral presentation at the workshop, and others will be selected as background papers for the working notes.
Authors of all accepted papers are encouraged to bring a poster and/or a system demonstration to the workshop. Authors should indicate whether they intend to present demonstrations, and whether they have any particular technical needs. The main selection criteria are quality, and appropriateness to the workshop themes. We will aim to ensure that papers
selected for oral presentation have topics that will provide a good focus for the later discussions (the main activity of the workshop),
while covering a broad range of areas overall.
