Call for Sponsors and Exhibitors

On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the ACM SIGIR Conference on Computer-Human Interactive Information Retrieval (CHIIR 2023) we would like to invite you to participate in the conference as a sponsor or exhibitor. CHIIR is the leading international forum for human-computer interaction in information retrieval. The human information interaction research presented at CHIIR is foundational for next-generation AI applications.

As a top-tier ACM conference, CHIIR attracts leading researchers and thought leaders from academia and industry. The CHIIR community works at the intersection of machine learning, artificial intelligence, and user interaction with information. Topics include information searching, dialogue frameworks, deep learning, user intention detection, deep semantic understanding, models of human interaction with information, models of types of information interactions, and measurement of user engagement with systems.

CHIIR offers a unique opportunity to connect with scientists developing these next-generation techniques and learn about future research directions. In addition, CHIIR offers the chance to meet and recruit the top PhD students. It is also an excellent venue to promote your organization’s brand to thought leaders with global influence. Sponsors will receive extensive exposure to this community during the conference promotion and during the conference.

We look forward to welcoming you to Austin in 2023 and encourage you to consider the benefits of sponsoring CHIIR 2023.

Scientific Program

The CHIIR 2023 Committee is planning a stimulating program covering five days, with research papers, posters, tutorials, workshops, and social events. The focus is on research and development in human interaction with information systems.

Supporters will benefit from networking in a community dedicated to understanding how humans work with information systems and how to build intelligent interactive information systems. This is foundational for the emerging opportunity to build practical AI systems. It is an area of increasing and intense interest in industry where the frameworks and research approaches to practical systems are in rapid development.
