Our paper “A Systematic Analysis of Sentence Update Detection for Temporal Summarization” with Evangelos Kanoulas (@ekanou) has been accepted as a full paper at ECIR2017! As in previous years, ECIR attracted a large number of submissions. The organizers received 135 valid long papers out of which 36 were accepted, leading to an acceptance rate of 27%. All submissions have been reviewed by at least three members of the Programme Committee. Subsequently, the discussion phase was guided by a senior reviewer and often led to quite extensive debates in case of conflicting reviews. All reviews and discussions were reviewed by the PC chairs.
The ECIR conference will be held in Aberdeeen, UK, between 8th -13th April 2017. I will post here a pre-print version of our paper soon.
