Submission Types
-------------------------
    - demos can accompany each submission type

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.**

Demo Papers
- Short papers describing demo systems are invited, and will be presented in a Demo/Poster reception with food and drinks, which is open to both full workshop and reception-only participants.

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.

Submitting:
------------------
Participants must submit anonymised ACM format PDFs to the EasyChair page, optionally indicating whether the submission is from industry or academia.

Long Papers - 6-10 pages - for notable industry case studies, novel research papers, or extensive well reasoned position papers.

Short Papers - 2-4 pages - for smaller case studies, smaller but concrete research contributions, demo papers, and position papers.
