About the Workshop

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 EuroHCIR 2012 is to focus the European community in the same way.

Consequently, the EuroHCIR workshop has four main goals:

  • Present and discuss novel HCIR designs, systems, and findings.
  • Identify and unite European researchers and industry professionals working in this area.
  • Facilitate and encourage collaboration and joint academic and industry ventures.
  • Define and coordinate a vision for the community for future EuroHCIR events.

We intend to engage both Industry and Academia alike, and so we are accepting case study reports from industry as well as early results and position statements from academia. See our Call for Papers.

To help engage both industry and academia, we have 4 organisers, spread across industry and academia, and across Europe. See our Organisers Page.
