Information Interaction in Context 2010

[Papers and posters are due April 11, 2010]

The Information Interaction in Context conference (IIiX) explores the
relationships between and within the contexts that affect information
retrieval and information seeking, how these contexts impact
information behavior, and how knowledge of information contexts and
behaviors improves the design of interactive information systems.

The intention of IIiX is to foster an integrated approach to
information access by bringing together members of the research
communities in information seeking behavior (Behavior Track),
interactive information retrieval (Interaction Track), and information
retrieval system design (System Track). A list of topics of interest
can be found at the conference website.

Submissions are sought that integrate two or more of these
perspectives.  While it is understood that one area might be the
dominant theme of the submission, the expectation is that authors will
provide an explicit discussion of how their submission informs at
least one other area.  For example, a submission that primarily
discusses system aspects should provide mention of how the system
impacts interaction or behavior.  A paper that primarily discusses
information behavior should discuss implications for interaction or
system design.  Papers that investigate multiple themes directly are
especially welcome.


IIiX encourages the submission of original, high quality research
papers that have not been published previously and are not under
review for another conference or journal. All submissions will be
reviewed by an international program committee. Full papers,
describing completed research results, should be no more than 10 pages
in length.

Provocative and interesting poster submissions, describing planned,
in-progress, and late-breaking results are also sought. The aim of the
poster session is to encourage debate, discussion, and future
collaboration. As well as being reviewed according to typical measures
of originality and technical merit, submissions will also be reviewed
for their suitability for an exciting and engaging poster session.

Poster papers should be no more than 4 pages in length. In addition,
authors of accepted posters are expected to include a 1 page image of
their posters (in PDF) as part of their FINAL submissions.  It will be
included alongside the paper in the ACM Digital Library. This image
SHOULD NOT be included as part of the initial submission.

Papers and posters are due April 11, 2010.


A Doctoral Consortium held in conjunction with the main conference
provides an opportunity for doctoral students to present and discuss
their research with senior researchers and other doctoral students in
a seminar format. The Doctoral Consortium focuses on 1) advising
students regarding currentcritical issues in their research, and 2)
making students aware of the strengths and weaknesses of their
research as viewed from different perspectives.

Submissions should include a short thesis description of 1,200-1,500
words and a statement of support from the applicant’s thesis advisor.
Additional details (including information about how to submit) can be
found at:  Submissions are due
on April 30, 2010.


The 4th Annual Workshop on Human-Computer Interaction and Information
Retrieval (HCIR 2010) will be held in conjunction with IIiX 2010. HCIR
is the study of information retrieval (IR) techniques that bring human
intelligence into the search process. It combines research from the
fields of human-computer interaction (HCI) and IR, placing an emphasis
on human involvement in search activities.  Additional details can be
found at:
