Call for Papers

In common with the wider HCIR community, but tailored to engage with the IR community, this workshop will be focused on submissions based on, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • IR systems for extended sessions (e.g. holiday planning, entertainment, and casual browsing)
  • Modelling and evaluation of HCIR / IR sessions
  • Scale and efficiency considerations for HCIR systems
  • Simulation of extended IR sessions and tasks
  • Novel interaction techniques for IR
  • Relevance feedback / active learning approaches for IR
  • Exploratory search and information discovery
  • Applications of HCI techniques to information retrieval needs in specific domains

Industry Submissions

The enterprise and web search experiences from professionals, such as UX designers etc, 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 Submissions

From the research community, we are interested in late breaking results, or challenging, contraversial, 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 should submit anonymised 2-4 page ACM format PDFs to the easychair page. More details are in our submissions page.
