Haystack EU 2024 Call for Papers – Closes 9th August 2024

Haystack EU 2024 will be held during the week of 30th September in Berlin, Germany. We expect the main conference days to be Monday 30th September & Tuesday 1st October, this year it will be a 2-day event (but with a single track of talks). There will be some training run by OSC after the main conference on Wednesday 2nd October.

At Haystack we want to hear from practitioners from around the world working on hard search & AI 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, RAG or Learning to Rank? A/B testing for search? Generating search quality data from user events? Your audience will generally be search professionals, developers, search product owners, AI and relevance engineers. We would like you to speak for 35-40 minutes, leaving at least 5 minutes for Q&A. Here’s last year’s schedule so you can see the sort of talks given at Haystack.

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 Scott Stults.

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).
