@arjenpdevries Hi Arjen.
How strict is the 2+2 page policy of SIGIR demo submissions? I mean, can we not blend the two pages of content with the two pages of figures/tables? Or should we simply put all figure/tables at the end of the paper? I think this would make the layout of the paper a bit unpleasant ;-).

#introductions I am a professor for Computer Science at the University of New Hampshire.
I develop algorithms for search engines. These often use knowledge graphs (such as from Wikipedia).
Mastodon's search makes my fingers itch. Maybe on a free weekend I will code up some better search for my toots.
In my spare time I love to go to the beach. Even if it is wicket cold. It is better than any meditation app.

There was a workshop on the next new thing in #IR just a couple of months ago #SWIRL. My guess is privacy preserving IR using homomorphic encryption will become important in industry. Someone will crack the problem and it will suddenly have a wealth of uses and interest from researchers.
