Summary of Discussion Session

Call For Participation:

As our lives become ever more digital, we face the difficult task of navigating the complex information spaces we create. The fields of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Information Retrieval (IR) have both developed innovative techniques to address this challenge, but their insights have to date often failed to cross disciplinary borders. In this one-day workshop we hope to explore the advances each domain can bring to the other.

Researchers and practitioners are invited to present ideas, research results, work in progress, and system demonstrations related to the intersection of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and Information Retrieval (IR). The intent of the workshop is not archival publication, but rather to provide a forum to build community and to stimulate discussion, new insight and experimentation.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

Demonstrations of systems and prototypes are welcome. Authors should indicate whether they intend to present demonstrations, and whether they have any particularly technical needs.

Authors must submit abstracts (1 to 2 pages) to no later than 8pm EST, October 1, 2007.

Workshop Chairs:
