Continuing SIGIR Uproar

In a follow-up to the initial post last week about the new online journal Not Relevant, Ian Soboroff has posted more information about its future. Here is a summary of its purpose:
The goal is to publish solid advances in the state of the art, game-changing work, research that pushes the boundaries of IR. We are not looking for incremental improvements.
William Webber wrote a great post about the rapidly rising field of complaining about aspects of SIGIR. Highly entertaining and worth reading.

Jeremy Pickens posted the reviews of his rejected paper and a discussion of them.

If you want to join the discussion, Ian started a Google Group, SIGIR Meta.

  2. There are some discussions here at ECIR but no action items as far as I can tell. So what's the point regarding discussions then.
