The FIRE Initiative (Forum for Information Retrieval Evaluation), organized by the Information Retrieval Society of India, targets the South Asian IR community, and has evolved continuously to meet the new challenges in multilingual information access. It has expanded to include new domains like plagiarism detection, legal information access, and mixed script information retrieval to name only a few. PAN has been "on FIRE" since 2011.
