Call for Papers and Posters

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).


  • Interactive information retrieval and interface issues
  • Qualitative approaches to the study of context-sensitive information seeking and information retrieval
  • Context-aware retrieval models
  • Relevance feedback (implicit & explicit) and query modification issues for capturing context
  • Novel approaches to eliciting, identifying, capturing and representing contextual information
  • Task-based interactive information retrieval and information seeking behavior
  • Issues of genre, media, language, modality and structure in contextual information seeking and information retrieval
  • Personalized and collaborative information access in context
  • Contextual information interaction theory
  • Nature of relevance in context
  • Measures and methods for studying and evaluating information seeking and information retrieval in context
  • Test collections for context-sensitive research

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.  Accepted papers will be made available in the ACM Digital Library.

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.


Full papers and poster papers should be formatted using the ACM Conference style (for LaTeX, use the “Option 2” style).  Submissions should be made in PDF.

Paper review will be double-blind so submissions should be anonymous.  Please omit author names and affiliations from the initial submission.


Papers and posters are due April 11, 2010, 11:59 PM EDT.  Papers and posters should be submitted through the conference management system: If you do not have an EasyChair account you will need to create one in order to submit a paper.
