We'll be using the #euroHCIR hashtag where possible
HCIR, or Human-Computer Information Retrieval, was a phrase coined by Gary Marchionini in 2005 and is representative of the growing interest in uniting both those who are interested in how information systems are built (the Information Retrieval community) and those who are interested in how humans search for information (the Human-Computer Interaction and Information Seeking communities). Five increasingly popular workshops and an NSF funded event, have brought focus to this multi-disciplinary issue in the USA, and the aim of the EuroHCIR workshops has been to support this focus in the European community in the same way.
Consequently, the EuroHCIR workshops have three main goals:
We intend to engage both Industry and Academia alike, and so we are accepting case study reports from industry as well research papers from academia. See our Call for Papers.
To help engage both industry and academia, we have 5 organisers, spread across industry and academia, and across Europe. See our Organisers Page.
EuroHCIR is conveniently located and timed to be near to several exciting Search related events in and around London, UK, including the ACM/IEEE 2014 Joint conference on Digital Libraries (8-12th Sept, London, UK), CLEF2014 (15-18th Sept, Sheffield, UK), and ISIC2014 (2-5th Sept, Leeds, UK).
