The SIGIR 2015 Workshop on Reproducibility, Inexplicability, and Generalizability of Results (RIGOR), to be held on Thursday, August 13, 2015 in Santiago, Chile, aims to provide a venue for publication and discussion of research focused on the repeatability, reproducibility, and generalizability of previously published methods and results.  In addition, the workshop will include an invited track where submissions will report on a common set of experiments using different open-source implementations of well-established baselines.  The goal is to further understand any differences in effectiveness and efficiency from different baseline implementations.
