HCIR 2010 : The 4th Annual Workshop on Human-Computer Interaction and Information Retrieval


When Aug 22, 2010 - Aug 22, 2010
Where New Brunswick, NJ, USA
Submission Deadline Jun 14, 2010
Notification Due Jul 16, 2010
Categories    HCI   information retrieval   IR

Call For Papers

Human-computer Information Retrieval (HCIR) combines research from the fields of human-computer interaction (HCI) and information retrieval (IR), placing an emphasis on human involvement in search activities.

* New for 2010: The HCIR Challenge!
* Now accepting submissions! See submission page for more details.
* Student travel awards from Microsoft Research are available. Details here.
* Grab the workshop flyer and spread the word about HCIR 2010!

The HCIR workshop has run annually since 2007. The workshop unites academic researchers and industrial practitioners working at the intersection of HCI and IR to develop more sophisticated models, tools, and evaluation metrics to support activities such as interactive information retrieval and exploratory search. It provides an opportunity for attendees to informally share ideas via posters, small group discussions and selected short talks.
Keynote speaker: Dan Russell, Google

Researchers and practitioners are invited to present interfaces (including mockups, prototypes, and other early-stage designs), research results from user studies of interfaces, and system demonstrations related to the intersection of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and Information Retrieval (IR). The intent of the workshop is not archival publication, but rather to provide a forum to build community and to stimulate discussion, new insight, and experimentation on search interface design.

Possible topics for presentation at the workshop include, but are not limited to:

* Novel interaction techniques for information retrieval.
* Modeling and evaluation of interactive information retrieval.
* Exploratory search and information discovery.
* Information visualization and visual analytics.
* Applications of HCI techniques to information retrieval needs in specific domains.
* Ethnography and user studies relevant to information retrieval and access.
* Scale and efficiency considerations for interactive information retrieval systems.
* Relevance feedback and active learning approaches for information retrieval.

Demonstrations of systems and prototypes are particularly welcome.

Workshop chairs:

* Bill Kules, The Catholic University of America
* Daniel Tunkelang, Google
* Ryen White, Microsoft Research

Program committee chair:

* Rob Capra, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Local arrangements chair:

* Catherine L. Smith, Rutgers University
