HCIR 2013
Symposium on Human-Computer Interaction & Information Retrieval

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
October 3-4, 2013

The 7th annual Symposium on Human-Computer Interaction and Information
Retrieval (HCIR 2013) will be held on Thursday and Friday, October 3 and
4th, 2013, at Simon Fraser University’s Segal School of Business in
downtown Vancouver, BC, Canada. The symposium is being supported by the
University of British Columbia iSchool.

HCIR 2013 is a two-day event consisting of a single-track of
user-centered IR research presentations, a poster session, and ample
opportunity for informal discussions and social interaction that
includes a reception on the Thursday evening.

Areas of interest for HCIR include, but are not limited to:

– Novel interaction techniques for information retrieval.
– Modeling 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.

HCIR solicits submission of full papers and short papers.

-Full papers are peer-reviewed for novelty, rigor, and quality
of presentation according to standards of first-tier conferences. They
will be published in the ACM Digital Library. Full papers should be 10
pages long in the ACM SIGCHI two-column format. Please see
http://www.sigchi.org/chipubform for templates on this format. All
accepted full papers will have a presentation slot in the symposium

– Short papers provide an opportunity for researchers to present
original research, preliminary work, position statements, and proposed
systems. Demonstrations of systems and prototypes are particularly
welcome. Short papers will be judged by members of the organizing
committee, based on relevance to HCIR and the paper’s potential to
generate good discussion. Short papers may be up to four pages long in
the ACM SIGCHI two-column format. Accepted short papers will be
published on the symposium web site and authors will present a poster at
the symposium during the poster session. Some short papers may be
selected for short presentations during the symposium main program.

Please submit papers using our EasyChair site:
