Location:  EK255 (SRI E building)  (Directions)

   Abstract

The deluge of scholarly publication poses a challenge for scholars to find relevant research and policy makers to seek in-depth information and understand research impact. Information retrieval (IR), natural language processing (NLP) and bibliometrics could enhance scholarly search, retrieval and user experience, but their use in digital libraries is not widespread. To address this gap, we organise the 4th Joint Workshop on Bibliometric-enhanced Information Retrieval and Natural Language Processing for Digital Libraries (BIRNDL) and the 5th CL-SciSumm Shared Task co-located with the 42nd International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval (SIGIR 2019). This year’s program featured two keynotes, 11 full papers, 4 short papers and 5 posters. The CL-SciSumm Shared Task had 17 registrations of which 9 teams submitted their systems for evaluation and presented at the workshop. In this debrief I will summarise the workshop proceedings and present highlights (keynotes, paper sessions and selected papers) from the SIGIR conference with which BIRNDL was co-located.
