FIRE 2018

Forum for Information Retrieval Evaluation

DAIICT , Gandhinagar

7th - 9th December

The 10th meeting of Forum for Information Retrieval Evaluation 2018 will be held in Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information and Communication Technology, Gujarat, India. Started in 2008 with the aim of building a South Asian counterpart for TREC, CLEF and NTCIR, FIRE has since evolved continuously to meet the new challenges in multilingual information access. It has expanded to include new domains like plagiarism detection, legal information access, mixed script information retrieval and spoken document retrieval to name a few. 

Continuing the trend started in 2015, the FIRE will consist of a peer-reviewed conference track along with evaluation tasks. We invite full and short papers from information retrieval, natural language processing, and related domains. Please refer to the call for papers or submission guidelines for more information.
