Call for Papers

The Asia Information Retrieval Societies Conference (AIRS) aims to bring together researchers and developers working in the field of information retrieval (IR) to present new research results, exchange new ideas and demonstrate new systems. The scope of the conference covers applications, systems, technologies and theory aspects of information retrieval in text, audio, image, video and multimedia data. The 15th AIRS (AIRS 2019) welcomes submissions of original papers in the broad field of information retrieval.

Paper types

AIRS 2019 accepts the following three types of papers.

Full papers: The page limit for full papers is 12 pages in the LNCS format.

Short papers: The page limit for short papers is 6 pages in the LNCS format. Compared to full papers, the contribution of short papers may be narrower in scope, be applied to a narrower set of application domains, or have weaker empirical support than that expected for a full paper. Submissions likely to generate discussions in new and emerging areas are especially encouraged.

Demo papers: The page limit for demo papers is 6 pages in the LNCS format. Demo papers present first-hand experience with research prototypes or operational systems. They provide opportunities to exchange ideas gained from implementing IR systems, and to obtain feedback from expert users.

All accepted full, short, and demo papers will be included in the LNCS conference proceedings.

Submission Instructions

Please follow the default author instructions for LNCS available at In addition, please "anonymize" your paper to facilitate double-blind reviewing. Submissions that do not follow the guideline and those that exceed the page limit will be rejected without review. Duplicate submissions (the same paper being submitted to AIRS 2019 and to another conference at the same time), if detected, will also be rejected without review.

Please submit your paper to EasyChair at by the aforementioned submission deadline. Once your paper gets accepted, you will be asked to send us a signed copyright form available at the above Springer website. At least one author per paper must register and present the work at the conference.
