Call For Papers
The ACM Conference on Human Information Interaction & Retrieval (CHIIR) is the pre-eminent forum for the presentation and discussion of research related to the user-centered aspects of information interaction and information retrieval, including human involvement in search activities and information seeking in context. We invite submissions on user-centered approaches to information retrieval, access, and use, including studies of interactive systems, novel interaction paradigms, new evaluation methods, and a range of related areas. Research that draws upon related work in communities such as psychology and human-computer interaction is encouraged.

We expect submissions to contain a rigorous evaluation of any proposed findings, using techniques such as laboratory studies, field experiments, in situ observational studies, crowdsourcing, simulations of search behavior, and log analysis. Authors should describe their methods and techniques in enough detail to allow for replication and reuse.

Users are central to the design, evaluation, and use of information retrieval systems. Many areas of interest for CHIIR have traditionally been covered under “Users and interactive IR” at the SIGIR Conference, and at the HCIR and IIiX conferences, which have merged to form this outlet. CHIIR provides a dedicated venue for broader, deeper discussion of research in this important area. We are particularly interested in papers about the following areas:

    Information seeking, search and retrieval, including task-based and exploratory search
    Interaction techniques for information retrieval and discovery
    Online information-seeking behavior, including log analysis of search and browsing
    Modeling and simulation of information interaction
    Search user interfaces, including those for specialized tasks, populations and domains
    Information use, including measures of use and sensemaking
    Field and case studies relevant to information retrieval and access
    User-centered evaluation methods and measures, including measures of user experience and performance, experiment and search task design, data analysis methods, and usability
    Context-aware and personalized search, contextual features and analysis for information interaction
    Collaborative information seeking and social search, including social utility and network analysis for information interaction
    Information visualization and visual analytics, search result presentation
    User-centered work in other areas of information retrieval

Submissions of full papers must be in English, in PDF format, and should not exceed ten pages in SIGIR two-column format (including references and figures). Suitable LaTeX and Word templates for CHIIR are available from the ACM Website (see SIGIR templates): The full-paper review process is double-blind. Authors must conceal their identity. Submissions that are over the ten-page limit, do not adhere to the two-column format, are not anonymous, or are incomplete will be rejected without review. Each submission should also be complete with all co-authors' information entered into the conference submission system.

Full papers must describe work that is not previously published, not accepted for publication elsewhere, and not currently under review elsewhere. This dual submission policy applies to short- and long-paper submissions to CHIIR 2016. If a short-paper and long-paper submission to CHIIR 2016 from the same authors are similar, they will both be rejected.

Full papers must be submitted electronically using the full-paper track of the conference submission system:

It is the responsibility of the authors to ensure that the PDF submission has been uploaded successfully. We suggest that authors download the PDF after submission to ensure correct formatting and printability.

At least one author of each accepted full paper must register and attend CHIIR 2016.
