1st European Workshop on Human-Computer Interaction and Information Retrieval

Call for Participation

July 4 at the BCS HCI2011 Conference, Newcastle, UK


CALL FOR PAPERS (anonymous 2-4 page position papers):
In common with the wider HCIR community, this workshop will be focused on submissions based on, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • Case studies demonstrating novel interaction with information (e.g., faceted navigation)
  • Exploratory search and information discovery (e.g., auto-complete, suggested terms)
  • Information visualization
  • Design and evaluation of search and browse interfaces (e.g., usability studies of search)
  • Ethnography and user studies relevant to search and navigation
  • Personalization techniques in search

Industry - The enterprise and web search experiences from professionals, such as IAs and UX designers, are a key part of understanding excellence in HCIR design. We are inviting case studies and position papers that go beyond a simple narrative to describe lessons learned for the community.
**Industry submissions will be evaluated more in terms of their contributions to lessons learned than through pure academic merit.**

Academia - From the research community, we are interested in late breaking results, or challenging, controversial, or insightful position papers that might shape the way the HCIR community thinks ahead.
** Academic contributions will be evaluated in terms of their contribution to the thinking and discussion for the workshop and the community.**

Participants must submit anonymised 2-4 page ACM format PDFs to the EasyChair page, optionally indicating whether the submission is from industry or academia. More details will appear on
