The workshop on Medical Information Retrieval took place at SIGIR 2014 in Gold Coast, Australia on July 11. The workshop included eight oral presentations of referred papers and an invited keynote presentation. This allowed time for lively discussions among the participants. These showed the significant interest in the medical information retrieval domain and the many research challenges arising in this space which need to be addressed to give added value to the wide variety of users that can profit from medical information search, such as patients, general health professionals and specialist groups such as radiologists who mainly search for images and image related information.
