Call for Sponsorships

On behalf of the Organizing Committee for the 41st European Conference on Information Retrieval (ECIR 2019) we invite you to participate in the conference as a supporter or exhibitor. The ECIR conference spans both academia and industry: As a top-tier international conference affiliated with the BCS / BCS IRSG, ECIR aims to support communication between researchers and practitioners by promoting the use of IR methods in industry and raising public awareness.

Acknowledged as the premier European gathering place for current and future IR leaders and innovators to discuss and present the state of the art in connecting people with information, ECIR sponsors highly contribute to the success of the conference and gain greater visibility for their companies.

Standard benefits for all supporters
• Recognition as a supporter, with organization logo, in the conference program and on the conference website
• Recognition as a supporter on the official acknowledgement board onsite at the Conference
• Use of the Conference logo until the end of April 2019

In-kind sponsorships that directly cover the costs of the conference are also welcome. These could be student travel scholarships, support for travel expenses of doctoral consortium students or best paper awards sponsorships. In these cases, the sponsor name is prominently acknowledged in connection to the sponsored activity.

The conference organizers are also happy to tailor alternative opportunities to suit your needs. If you have any creative or interactive ideas of activity we’d be interested to talk to you about how we can incorporate your ideas into a package.

We look forward to seeing you in Cologne, Germany in April 2019!
