Call for Papers

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

  • Novel interaction techniques for information retrieval.
  • Modelling 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.


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.


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.
