The deadline for entering the SIGIR 2007 mentoring programme passed. Our mentoring chair, Mark Sanderson, received around 40 requests: about 25 % more than last year. Experience from past conferences shows that 1 or 2 mentored papers are accepted as full papers each year.

A mentor is someone who helps with preparing the mentee's SIGIR submission through one-on-one advising, usually via e-mail. The mentor can also familiarize the mentee with the standards of SIGIR submissions. Mentors are volunteers familiar with successful submissions and experts in the field of information retrieval. The deadline for submitting a mentoring request was 15 November 2006.
