Just a quick reminder that the deadline for our BIRDS workshop (June 21 AoE) is approaching. Would be great to see your submission! Drop me a message if there are any questions (or want to negotiate an extension ;-)). More at https://birds-ws.github.io/birds2020/
We extended the deadline for long, short and position papers of our BIRDS@SIGIR2020 workshop to June 21. We’re also extremely happy and honoured to announce that Nick Belkin and Carlos Castillo agreed to provide keynote talks. More details at https://birds-ws.github.io/birds2020/index.html.
Social Distancing in Pictures…
Same place, Same time… Two pictures clicked indifferent angles, one with Zoom and other with Wide-angle Lens. How Photography can do the Trick without morphing… Add a misleading narrative too, it can be very Diabolic.

BIRDS 2020 - an interdisciplinary SIGIR 2020 workshop for students, practitioners and researchers in Data Science, Information Retrieval and Information Science. We want to discuss how these 3 communities can learn from each other to provide more user-driven data/information exploration and retrieval solutions. Are you working on topics that could be interesting for one or more of these 3 communities? Please consider submitting. Like SIGIR, BIRDS will be fully online. https://birds-ws.github.io/birds2020/index.html

Senior lecturer at University of Bedfordshire. Interested in all things Information Retrieval.
The "unofficial" Information Retrieval Mastodon Instance.
Goal: Make idf.social a viable and valuable social space for anyone working in Information Retrieval and related scientific research.
Everyone welcome but expect some level of geekiness on the instance and federated timelines.
