Call for Papers:
In common with the wider HCIR community, this workshop will be focused on submissions based on, but not limited to, the following topics:

 IR systems for extended sessions (e.g. holiday planning, entertainment, and casual browsing)
 Modelling and evaluation of HCIR / IR sessions
 Scale and efficiency considerations for HCIR systems
 Simulation of extended IR sessions and tasks
 Novel interaction techniques for IR
 Relevance feedback / active learning approaches for IR
 Exploratory search and information discovery
 Applications of HCI techniques to information retrieval needs in specific domains

Submission Types
Industry Case Studies
- The enterprise and web search experiences from professionals are a key part of understanding excellence in HCIR design. We are inviting case studies and position papers that go beyond a simple narrative to describe lessons learned for the community.
**Industry case studies will be evaluated more in terms of their contributions to lessons learned than through research merit.**

Research Papers
- From the research community, we are interested in research contributions, late breaking results, or challenging, controversial, or insightful position papers that might shape the way the HCIR community thinks ahead.
** Academic contributions will be evaluated in terms of their contribution to the thinking and discussion for the workshop and the community.**

Position Papers
- Sometimes insight comes from a range of sources - position papers that are thoughtful and well reasoned are invited, especially if they kick up some discussion.

Participants must submit anonymised 2-4 page ACM format PDFs to the EasyChair page, optionally indicating whether the submission is from industry or academia. More details will appear on
