ACM International Conference on Web Search and Web Data Mining

WSDM (pronounced “wisdom”) is one of the premier conferences covering research in the areas of search and data mining on the Web. WSDM publishes original, high-quality papers related to search and data mining on the Web and the Social Web, with an emphasis on practical but principled novel models of search, retrieval and data mining, algorithm design and analysis, economic implications, and in-depth experimental analysis of accuracy and performance.

International Conference on the Theory of Information Retrieval

The International Conference on the Theory of Information Retrieval (ICTIR) is the premier conference of theoretical information retrieval, covering a broad spectrum of diverse research areas that are concerned with mathematical/formal aspects of IR, including foundational issues, description or integration of models, retrieval applications, mathematical/formal techniques, existing and/or new theories and theoretical aspects.

Last conference: ICTIR 2013, September 30 – October 2, 2013, Copenhagen, Denmark

ACM SIGIR Conference on Human Information Interaction and Retrieval

CHIIR (pronounced “cheer”) provides a forum for the dissemination and discussion of research on the user-centered aspects of information interaction and information retrieval. The conference focuses on elements such as human involvement in search activities, and information seeking and use in context. CHIIR is a merger of two successful events: the Information Interaction in Context conference (IIiX) and the Human Computer Information Retrieval symposium (HCIR). CHIIR builds upon the combined strengths of these events, emphasizing human interaction with information, information seeking contexts, and user-centered approaches to information retrieval, access, and use. CHIIR also publishes related research on human-human information interaction, novel interaction paradigms, and new evaluation methodologies. Research on information interaction and retrieval that draws upon work in areas such as sociology, ethnography, psychology, and human-computer interaction is also welcome at CHIIR.

First conference: CHIIR 2016, March 2016, Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA
