HCIR Workshop

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.

The HCIR workshop has run annually since 2007: first at MIT in Boston MA, then Microsoft Research in Redmond WA, and most recently at The Catholic University of America in Washington DC. The workshop unites academic researchers and industrial practitioners working at the intersection of HCI and IR to develop more sophisticated models, tools, and evaluation metrics to support activities such as interactive information retrieval and exploratory search. It provides an opportunity for attendees to informally share ideas via posters, small group discussions and selected short talks. We envisage that IIiX and HCIR attendees will have many shared interests and look forward to welcoming IIiX attendees to HCIR 2010.

Please visit the HCIR 2010 website to find out more about the event. HCIR 2010 will be held on August 22, immediately following IIiX.
