Second Workshop on Human-Computer Interaction and Information Retrieval

October 23, 2008
Redmond, Washington, USA

About this Workshop

As our lives become ever more digital, we face the difficult task of
navigating the complex information spaces we create. The fields of
Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Information Retrieval (IR) have
both developed innovative techniques to address this challenge, but
their insights have to date often failed to cross disciplinary borders.

In this one-day workshop we will explore the advances each domain can
bring to the other. Following the success of the HCIR 2007 workshop,
co-hosted by MIT and Endeca, we are once again bringing together
academics, industrial researchers, and practitioners for a discussion of
this important topic.

This year the workshop is focused on the design, implementation, and
evaluation of search interfaces. We are particularly interested in
interfaces that support complex and exploratory search tasks.

Keynote speaker:  Susan Dumais, Microsoft Research

Researchers and practitioners are invited to present interfaces
(including mockups, prototypes, and other early-stage designs), research
results from user studies of interfaces, and system demonstrations
related to the intersection of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and
Information Retrieval (IR). The intent of the workshop is not archival
publication, but rather to provide a forum to build community and to
stimulate discussion, new insight, and experimentation on search
interface design. Demonstrations of systems and prototypes are
particularly welcome.

Possible topics 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.
