Call for Demos | Living Labs for IR workshop

The Living Labs for Information Retrieval Evaluation (LL’13) workshop at CIKM’13 invites researchers and practitioners to present their innovative prototypes or practical developments in a dedicated demo track. Demo submissions must be based on an implemented system that pursues one or more aspects relevant to the interest areas of the workshop.

Authors are strongly encouraged to target scenarios that are rooted in real-world applications. One way to think about this is by considering the following: as a company operating a website/service/application, what methods could allow various academic groups to experiment with specific components of this website/service/application?
In particular, we seek prototypes that define specific component(s) in the context of some website/service/application, and allow for the testing and evaluation of alternative methods for that component. One example is search within a specific vertical (such as product or travel search engine), but we encourage authors to think outside the (search) box.

All accepted demos will be evaluated and considered for the Best Demo Award.
The Best Demo Award winner will receive an award of 750 EUR, offered by the ‘Evaluating Information Access Systems’ (ELIAS) ESF Research Networking Programme. The award can be used to cover travel, accommodation or other expenses in relation to attending and/or demo’ing at LL’13.

The submission deadline for demos and for all other contributions is July 22 (extended).

Further details can be found on the workshop website.
