Short Papers

We invite those working in areas related to human information interaction and retrieval to submit original (four-page) short papers, which will be presented as posters at the conference. Submissions are welcome in areas related to any aspect of HIIR, as identified in the call for full papers. Submissions will be peer reviewed, and accepted submissions will be published in the conference proceedings in the ACM Digital Library.

Short papers present original, previously-unpublished high-quality work, like full papers, but typically based upon a smaller, more concise contribution. They provide an opportunity to describe work in progress or research that is best communicated in an interactive or graphical format. Short papers can also present research that is controversial, and new applications of old ideas or the reworking of previous studies. They should be inspirational and spark discussion among attendees.

Submissions of short papers must be in English, in PDF format, and should not exceed four pages in SIGIR two-column format (including references and figures). Suitable LaTeX and Word templates for CHIIR are available from the ACM Website (see SIGIR templates): The short-paper review process is double-blind. Authors must conceal their identity. Submissions that are over the four-page limit, do not adhere to the two-column format, are not anonymous, or are incomplete will be rejected without review. Each submission should also be complete with all co-authors' information entered into the conference submission system.

Note that summaries of full papers that have already been published or submitted elsewhere (including in another language) are not acceptable as short-paper submission to CHIIR 2016. This dual submission policy applies to short- and long-paper submissions to CHIIR 2016. If a short-paper and long-paper submission to CHIIR 2016 from the same authors are similar, they will both be rejected.

Short papers must be submitted electronically using the short-paper track of the conference submission system:

It is the responsibility of the authors to ensure that the PDF submission has been uploaded successfully. We suggest that authors download the PDF after submission to ensure correct formatting and printability.

At least one author of each accepted short paper must register and attend CHIIR 2016.
