SIGIR-AP is an annual ACM-sponsored conference that promotes and disseminates information retrieval research and development within the Asia-Pacific region defined as all of Asia, Australasia, and the islands of the Pacific and Indian Oceans. It is a the major international forum for the presentation of new research results, and the demonstration of new systems and techniques, in the broad field of information retrieval (IR). The main conference is a two-day event, with tutorial and workshop days before and after the main conference, as required. Other related events, such as CCIR, NTCIR, ADCS, and FIRE may also be scheduled in the days before and after the main conference.
The proceedings of previous SIGIR-APs may be ordered from ACM, or you can go directly to ACM Digital Library for the proceedings.
November 26th-29th, 2023
To be announced
The topics of interest to the SIGIR-AP community include but are not limited to the following areas
Research on core IR algorithmic topics, including IR at scale, such as
Research focusing on recommender systems, rich content representations and content analysis, such as
Research bridging ML, NLP, and IR, such as
Research into user-centric aspects of IR including user interfaces, behavior modeling, privacy, interactive systems, such as
Research that focuses on the measurement and evaluation of IR systems, such as
Research on aspects of fairness and information bias in search and recommender systems, such as
Research focusing on domain-specific IR challenges, such as
SIGIR-AP will make every effort to be carbon neutral. Towards this goal, in-person attendees will be encouraged to purchase carbon credits matching their transport costs, and all conference purchases will either be undertaken via approved green suppliers, or be matched by the purchase of carbon credits as part of the conference budget.
Attendance options will be permanently available for remote participation, including remote/online attendance; remote presentation of papers; and support for possible satellite venues elsewhere in the Asia-Pacific region at which groups of people might gather to attend the conference.
Online attendance fees will be set at a level sufficiently low to be viable to interested people from all countries. Where even those fees would prove onerous to individuals, online attendance at the conference will be made available free of charge.
