Call for Demonstrations
Demonstrations at the SIGIR 2005 conference are aimed at
offering first-hand experience with research prototypes or
operational systems. They will provide opportunities to
exchange ideas gained from implementing IR systems and
collecting feedback from expert users.
A demonstration proposal is a one-page extended abstract
that must be submitted electronically to the demonstration
chair Javed Mostafa. The proposal must include an overview
of what the implemented system aimed to achieve, the major
components of the system, novelty of the algorithm/s or
technique/s implemented, and relation to other systems or
projects described in the context of other research (i.e.,
references to related literature).
Include along with the demonstration proposal a separate
page describing the hardware, software and network access
requirements for the demonstration. Proposals on systems
based on non-standard hardware, e.g. context-aware mobile
systems or virtual reality systems must include a short
statement describing how the systems will be demonstrated at
We can accept demonstration proposals in either PDF or
Postscript. It is the responsibility of the authors to
ensure that their proposals use no unusual format features
and can be printed on a standard Postscript printer.
LaTeX and Word templates for SIGIR submissions are available from
the ACM Website. Accepted proposals will be published in the
