Future research directions in IR

Wondering what your next IR conference paper should be about? This is the billion dollar question (well, at least for IR researchers) that I surely won’t answer for you. But, here is some hint.
(I’ve just come across this on Facebook (thnx to Arjen P. De Vries and Claudia Hauff); this is evidence, that if you cut through all the clutter, FB can indeed be a great tool sometimes for finding serendipitous information. Maybe this is also something to think about…)
The list contains nominated papers from prominent IR researchers “that, in their opinion, represent important new directions, research areas, or results in the IR field.”
I must say I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. And yes, it does make me feel good that I see our last year’s ECIR paper with Elena Smirnova on the list :)
