Haystack US 2023 will be held during the week of 24th April in Charlottesville, Virginia. We expect the main conference days to be Tuesday 25th & Wednesday 26th.
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.
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 David Fisher.
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).
