The objective is to bring together the research and practitioner communities to discuss trends in information retrieval and in commercial search management and to explore synergies between the two communities.
The conference is preceeded by a day of tutorials and workshops. There is separate registration for the tutorials and the conference.
The programme of Search Solutions 2020 is representative of the format and content of the conference though it was run as a virtual event.
A call for presentations is made on the IRSG mailing list in August.
