The 12th meeting of Forum for Information Retrieval Evaluation 2020 will be held virtually in Hyderabad, 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.
Given the current COVID 19 situation FIRE 2020 will be conducted online
