Call For Papers

Conference Scope and Topics

Users are central to the design, evaluation, and use of information retrieval systems. We invite submissions on user-centered approaches to information retrieval, access, and use, including studies of interactive systems, novel interaction paradigms, new evaluation methods, and a range of related areas.

We are particularly interested in papers in 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, eye-tracking and physiological approaches, 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

Contribution Types

Full papers: We are looking for high quality original research of relevance to CHIIR as full paper submissions (10 pages). 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.

Short papers: Short papers (4 pages) should also be original, high-quality submissions, like full papers, but based upon a smaller, concise contribution. These may present work in progress, late-breaking results, reports on projects or applications, or demos. Accepted short papers will be published as part of the proceedings, but will also be presented as posters during the poster reception at the conference.

Perspective papers: a special category of full papers (10 pages) that present novel ideas or insights concerning approaches, key challenges, or methodological issues that have the potential to inspire substantive discussion and lead to significant advances in the field. These papers should not consist primarily of literature reviews or the presentation of stand-alone studies, but may take the form of:

reflections upon the body of research, considering how the field, the theories, the models, and the methods have developed;
discussion of the implications of research findings on users in the real world;
proposals for and discussions of theories or models of information-interaction; or
critical, provocative, and creative contributions to stir debate and discussion.
