Apologies for multiple postings.

*Call for Papers*
Date: 10 July 2016
At the ACM Hypertext2016 Conference, 11-13 July 2016, Halifax, CA.

*Workshop Overview*
The aim of this workshop is to discuss how users search information and navigate on the Internet, how individual differences in cognitive factors and strategies cause variations in search and navigation performance as well as how to model these individual differences in cognitive factors in order to build support mechanisms and tools.
A number of cognitive processes are involved in the process of interacting with a search engine and websites: attention, memory, comprehension, problem solving, and decision making. Several cognitive factors such as aging-related cognitive abilities, domain knowledge, internet experience, etc. in turn influence either positively or negatively the above cognitive processes. Traditional search engines and information retrieval systems in general, however, focus largely on retrieving the most relevant results given a query and ignore all the variations caused by the cognitive factors.

Cognitive models, on the other hand, take into account all the cognitive processes involved in an information search task and the cognitive factors that influence those cognitive processes to predict information search performance in a precise and automated way. They are based on well-tested theories of cognitive psychology and cognitive science on information search and navigation and are useful in building theory-based support mechanisms or interventions for those in need.

Topics of Interest
Individual differences in information search and navigation.
Computational modeling approaches to information search and navigation.
Cognitively inspired support tools or interventions for information search and navigation.
Other relevant topics to the theme of the workshop.

*Submission Details*
The workshop organizers invite short papers (max 5 pages + references) that deal with one or more of the afore mentioned topics.
To submit a short paper: see the submissions guidelines
Accepted papers will be published in the Hypertext 2016 Extended Proceedings.

*Important dates*
Deadline Submission: 27 May 2016
Date for Notification: 10 June 2016
Camera-ready papers due: 1st July 2016
Workshop date: 10 July 2016
