The growth in SIGIR over the past few years has been remarkable. SIGIR 2005 saw a record 368 full paper submissions; SIGIR 2006 again set a record with 399 submissions. In our planning for 2007 we anticipated between 350 and 400 papers. Instead, we were pleasantly surprised, but somewhat overwhelmed, when we received 490 submissions, an increase of nearly 23% over 2006. From these submissions we were able to accept 84 papers (17.5%). These contributions are drawn from the breadth of IR research, including indexing, efficiency, evaluation, formal models, machine learning, classification, and user studies. Many papers are devoted to specialized topics such as question answering, multi-media retrieval, Web search and spam. Along with these full papers, we were able to accept 105 posters, 18 demonstrations, 9 tutorials and 9 workshops. In addition, 9 PhD candidates were selected to participate in our doctoral consortium.
