Call For Papers

* Submission deadline: September 1, 2015
* CHIIR 2016: Conference on Human Information Interaction and Retrieval (CHIIR)
* Sponsored by ACM SIGIR
* Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA
* March 13-17, 2016

The 1st annual ACM SIGIR Conference on Human Information Interaction and Retrieval (CHIIR 2016) will be held on March 13-17, 2016 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. CHIIR is a forum for the dissemination and discussion of research on the user-centered aspects of information interaction and information retrieval. CHIIR focuses on elements such as human involvement in search activities, and information seeking and use in context. The conference represents a merger of two successful past events: the Information Interaction in Context conference (IIiX) and the Human Computer Information Retrieval symposium (HCIR), which have run since 2006 and 2007, respectively.

CHIIR 2016 solicits several types of submissions: full papers, short papers and workshop proposals. In addition, CHIIR will host a doctoral consortium.

For more details, see:


1 Sept 2015 - Full Papers Due
15 Sept 2015 - Short Papers, Workshops Proposals and DC Submissions Due
20 Oct 2015 - Workshop Notifications
13 Nov 2015 - Full and Short Paper Notifications
13-17 Mar 2016 - CHIIR conference

We expect submissions to contain a rigorous evaluation of any proposed findings, using techniques such as laboratory studies, field experiments, in situ observational studies, crowdsourcing, simulations of search behavior, and log analysis. Authors should describe their methods and techniques in enough detail to allow for replication and reuse.

Users are central to the design, evaluation, and use of information retrieval systems. Many areas of interest for CHIIR have traditionally been covered under "Users and interactive IR" at the SIGIR Conference, and at previous HCIR and IIiX conferences. CHIIR provides a dedicated venue for broader, deeper discussion of research in this important area.

We are particularly interested in papers about the following areas:

* Information seeking, search and retrieval, including task-based and exploratory search

* Interaction techniques for information retrieval and discovery

* Online information-seeking behavior, including log analysis of search and browsing

* Modeling and simulation of information interaction

* Search user interfaces, including those for specialized tasks, populations and domains

* Information use, including measures of use and sensemaking

* Field and case studies relevant to information retrieval and access

* User-centered evaluation methods and measures, including measures of user experience and performance, experiment and search task design, data analysis methods, and usability

* Context-aware and personalized search, contextual features and
analysis for information interaction

* Collaborative information seeking and social search, including social utility
and network analysis for information interaction

* Information visualization and visual analytics, search result presentation

* User-centered work in other areas of information retrieval

Both full and short paper submissions should be in English and formatted using the LaTeX or Word style templates from the ACM Website: Submissions should be in PDF. Full paper submissions should not exceed 10 pages and short paper submissions should not exceed 4 pages. Accepted full and short papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library as part of the conference proceedings. The system for submitting papers will be made available soon.
