Haystack EU 2023 Call for Papers is now closed.

Haystack EU 2023 will be held during the week of 18th September in Berlin, Germany. We expect the main conference days to be Wednesday 20th & Thursday 21st – yes, this year it will be a 2-day event (but with a single track of talks).

At Haystack we want to hear from practitioners from around the world working on hard relevance problems. We want to hear and share what’s working and not working – the real-life war stories of theory encountering practice. What did that paper actually say, and how did you implement it in your search stack? Was the silver bullet for your team some kind of taxonomy? Or intent classification? Or perhaps vector search or Learning to Rank? A/B testing for search? Generating search quality data from user events? Your audience will generally be search professionals, developers and relevance engineers. We would like you to speak for 35-40 minute, leaving at least 5 minutes for Q&A.

Submissions will be reviewed by multiple reviewers. Reviewing will be on a blind basis with identifying information removed, by a volunteer group drawn from the search relevance community. The top rated submissions will then be used to create the Haystack conference programme. If you have any questions please contact Daniel Wrigley

All speakers who are accepted will receive a 50% discount on the conference ticket either by discount code or via a refund (we don’t take any sponsorship for the event and try very hard to keep ticket prices as low as possible, plus we know some speakers pay for their ticket in advance in full anyway, so we feel this is an acceptable compromise. If you disagree please let us know).
