The annual SIGIR conference is the major international forum for the presentation of new research results, and the demonstration of new systems and techniques, in the broad field of information retrieval (IR). The 41st ACM SIGIR conference, to be held in Ann Arbor, U.S.A, welcomes contributions related to any aspect of information retrieval and access, including theories and foundations, algorithms and applications, and evaluation and analysis. The conference and program chairs invite those working in areas related to IR to submit high-impact original papers for review.

Search and Ranking
Foundations and Future Directions
Content Recommendation, Analysis and Classification
Artificial Intelligence, Semantics, and Dialog
Human factors and interfaces
