First Neu-IR Forum Organized at SIGIR 2016

Distinguished Professor Bruce Croft was an organizer of the ACM SIGIR 2016 Workshop on Neural Information Retrieval (Neu-IR) that took place in Pisa, Italy. It was the first forum for academic and industrial researchers, working at the intersection of information retrieval (IR) and machine learning, in the rapidly growing area of neural models in information retrieval.
