=== tl;dr ===
The Bibliometric-enhanced Information Retrieval (BIR) workshop series at ECIR 
tackles issues related to academic search, at the intersection between 
Information Retrieval and Bibliometrics.  BIR is a hot topic investigated by 
both academia (e.g., ArnetMiner, CiteSeerX) and the industry (e.g., Google 
Scholar, Microsoft Academic Search, Semantic Scholar). A one-day workshop is to 
be held with ECIR 2021.

An overview of the BIR/BIRNDL workshop series can be found at 
https://sites.google.com/view/bir-ws/home. Past BIR(NDL) proceedings are online 
https://dblp.org/search?q=BIR.ECIR as open access.
