The ECIR 2011 conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Authors for both long and short papers are invited to submit their paper on or before 18 October 2010 and for authors of posters or demonstrations the due date is 29 October 2010.
All paper submissions must be written in English following the LNCS author guidelines. Full papers must not exceed 12 pages including references and figures, short-papers submissions should have a maximum length of 6 pages, and posters and demos must not be longer than 4 pages. At the conference, both long and short papers will be presented orally. Posters and demonstrations will be presented at a special posters and demonstrations session.
All papers will be refereed through double-blind peer review so authors should take reasonable care not identify themselves in their submissions. The proceedings will be distributed to all delegates at the conference.
