ACM SIGIR Conference On Human Information Interaction And Retrieval

19 – 23 March, 2023. Austin, TX, USA

ACM CHIIR 2023 Call for Submissions:

The 2023 ACM SIGIR Conference on Human Information Interaction and Retrieval (CHIIR – pronounced “cheer”) will take place in Austin, Texas, USA  March 19 – 23, 2023.  ACM SIGIR CHIIR 2023 invites submissions focused on user-centered approaches to the design and evaluation of systems for information access, seeking, retrieval, and use. Contributions may explore improvements to existing systems and interfaces; propose novel theories, models, and systems; or focus on understanding individual and group interactions with information and information systems.

CHIIR is a multi-disciplinary research meeting. In addition to studies of interactive systems, information interaction, and retrieval, we encourage submissions on related topics such as human-human information interaction, novel interaction paradigms, new evaluation methods, and related research in a range of communities such as sociology, ethnography, psychology, and human-computer interaction.

We welcome submissions on a wide range of quantitative and qualitative research methods. ACM CHIIR operates under the ACM Conference Code of Conduct.

Topics covered include but are not limited to:

  • Information seeking, including task-based and exploratory studies
  • Search interfaces, including those for specialized tasks, populations, and domains
  • Information access methods and systems for users of all abilities
  • Information interactions other than search
  • User-centered design approaches to humans interacting with information and systems
  • Interaction techniques for information retrieval and discovery
  • Online information seeking, including log analysis of search and browsing
  • Modeling and simulation of information interaction
  • Quantitative and qualitative studies of human information interaction
  • Information seeking and use behaviors, including measures of use and broader sensemaking
  • Field and case studies of information searching, design and access
  • User-centered evaluation methods and measures, including measures of user experience and performance, experiment and search task design, eye-tracking and neuro-physiological approaches, data analysis methods, and usability
  • Human interaction and experience with conversational information systems
  • Context-aware and personalized search, including design, contextual features and analysis of information interaction
  • Information visualization and visual analytics, including search result presentation
  • Enabling and studying multi-modal interactions with information
  • Collaborative information seeking and social search, including social utility and network analysis for information interaction
  • Conversational search and other types of stateful and multi-turn interactions between users and search applications
  • Insights and analyses related to human experiences and usage trends with recommendation technologies
  • Information interaction and seeking with mobile devices and services
