Call for Sponsorship


On behalf of the Organising Committee of the 46th European Conference on Information Retrieval (ECIR 2024), we invite you to participate in the conference as a financial sponsor. ECIR is a top-tier international Information Retrieval (IR) conference for both academia and industry, with a strong focus on the active participation of early-career researchers. It is recognised as the premier European gathering place for current and future IR leaders and innovators. ECIR aims to foster communication and knowledge transfer between researchers and practitioners and promote methods and technologies in search, recommender systems (RecSys) and artificial Intelligence (AI).

ECIR offers a variety of sponsorship opportunities suitable for organisations of all sizes. ECIR sponsors contribute towards the success of the conference, while gaining greater visibility among top international researchers and PhD students. Your financial support will ensure that the costs of the conference remain accessible for students, and will improve the quality of the conference experience for all attendees worldwide. Moreover, as a sponsor, you will have the opportunity to showcase your company and recruit excellent candidates in the broad areas of IR, RecSys and AI.

The Organising Committee are happy to discuss alternative opportunities to best suit your needs and to talk to you about how we can incorporate them into a personalised package. 

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. In these cases, the sponsor name is prominently acknowledged in connection to the sponsored activity.
