Haystack US 2020 Cancelled

Dear all,

It won’t have escaped your notice that due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many events have been cancelled, moved online or rescheduled. Here at OSC we’ve spent the last few weeks monitoring the situation and considering our plans for Haystack US in Charlottesville.

We’re very sorry to announce that we will be cancelling Haystack US and the associated training sessions. We will be offering a full refund to all those who have registered. This is hugely disappointing for the organizers and for all of those looking forward to the event.

We are currently investigating whether some of the planned talks and training could be given online over the next few months - not a replacement for attending Haystack of course but maybe some small consolation. We’ll keep everyone informed of these potential plans.

We’re going to miss meeting all of you in Charlottesville but hope to keep in touch via Relevance Slack in the meantime.

Haystack will return!

With best wishes from all at OSC.

Haystack is the conference for improving search relevance. If you're like us, you work to understand the shiny new tools or dense academic papers out there that promise the moon. Then you puzzle how to apply those insights to your search problem, in your search stack. But the path isn't always easy, and the promised gains don't always materialize.

Haystack is the conference for organizations where search, matching, and relevance really matters to the bottom line. For search managers, developers, relevance engineers & data scientists finding ways to innovate, see past the silver bullets, and share what actually has worked well for their unique problems. Please come share and learn!
