Call for sponsorship

Sponsorship Opportunities for CIRCLE 2020

 

 

On behalf of the Organizing Committee for the 1rst Joint Conference of the Information Retrieval Communities in Europe (CIRCLE 2020) we invite you to participate in the conference as a supporter or hackathon provider.

CIRCLE 2020 arose from a twofold wish to gather three national Information Retrieval (IR) conferences and to offer young researchers in Information Retrieval the opportunity to meet and discuss with senior researchers. CIRCLE is supported by the ARIA French conference (CORIA, COnférence en Recherche d’Information et Applications), the Spanish Conference on Information Retrieval (CERI, Congreso Español de Recuperación de Información), the Italian Information Retrieval Workshop, and the Swiss IR community.

The main objective of CIRCLE 2020 is to propose a unique place for stimulating and disseminating research in IR, where senior/industrial and early stage researchers (including MSc and PhD students) can network and discuss their research results in a friendly environment. Attendees in the past joined conferences are researchers and practitioners who work in research areas that include information retrieval, data mining and machine learning, human-computer interaction, natural language processing, and more. The conference will also hosts top Ph.D. students from the most prestigious institutions in computer and information science, in France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland and elsewhere.

CIRCLE 2020 will take place on July 6-9, 2020 at Samatan, Gers, south of France (50 minutes  from Toulouse). More information at https://www.irit.fr/CIRCLE/

Participation in CIRCLE 2020 will be low fare charged, specifically for students and young researchers thank to the help of our sponsors.

We look forward to seeing you in Samatan, France in July 2020!
