33rd Annual ACM SIGIR Conference

Best paper awards

SIGIR Best Paper Awards Policy

SIGIR presents a best paper and a best student paper award at the awards presentation during the conference banquet.

The process followed for the selection of the best papers is described below. During the paper review process, program committee members and Senior PCs nominate papers. These are being discussed at the PC meeting and the Program Chairs with the input of SPCs finalize the list of nominated papers. Then, a best paper awards committee is being formed. The Program and Conference Chairs select members for this committee from the pool of SPCs that have no conflicts of interest. The nominated papers are then forwarded to the awards committee for their deliberations. The committee is charged to identify the best paper. If the best paper happens to be written by a student first author, then only one award is given that covers both the best paper and best student paper. Otherwise, two awards are given.
