Just under two weeks to go until the ECIR 2014 short paper deadline. Six pages LNCS style.

Short Paper submissions offer researchers an opportunity to present significant work in progress or research that is best communicated in an interactive or graphical format. Each short paper submission that is accepted for ECIR 2014 will be presented in a poster format, in order to provide researchers with an opportunity to obtain direct feedback about their work from a wide audience during the poster session.

What makes a good short paper? Short papers are not full papers squeezed into four pages. They can present smaller or more speculative ideas, they could also be more controversial, they may present new applications of old ideas or the reworking of previous studies. Finally, they should be inspirational and spark some discussion.
