The 1st annual ACM SIGIR Conference on Human Information Interaction and 
Retrieval (CHIIR 2016) will be held on March 13-17, 2016 in Chapel Hill, 
North Carolina.  CHIIR is a forum for the dissemination and discussion 
of research on the user-centered aspects of information interaction and 
information retrieval. CHIIR focuses on elements such as human 
involvement in search activities, and information seeking and use in 
context. The conference represents a merger of two successful past 
events: the Information Interaction in Context conference (IIiX) and the 
Human Computer Information Retrieval symposium (HCIR), which have run 
since 2006 and 2007, respectively.

CHIIR 2016 solicits several types of submissions: full papers, short 
papers and workshop proposals. In addition, CHIIR will host a doctoral

       1 Sept 2015 - Full Papers Due
      15 Sept 2015 - Short Papers, Workshops Proposals and DC 
Submissions Due
      20 Oct  2015 - Workshop Notifications
      13 Nov  2015 - Full and Short Paper Notifications
      13-17 Mar 2016 - CHIIR conference

We expect submissions to contain a rigorous evaluation of any proposed 
findings, using techniques such as laboratory studies, field 
experiments, in situ observational studies, crowdsourcing, simulations 
of search behavior, and log analysis. Authors should describe their 
methods and techniques in enough detail to allow for replication and reuse.

Users are central to the design, evaluation, and use of information 
retrieval systems. Many areas of interest for CHIIR have traditionally 
been covered under "Users and interactive IR" at the SIGIR Conference, 
and at previous HCIR and IIiX conferences. CHIIR provides a dedicated 
venue for broader, deeper discussion of research in this important area.

We are particularly interested in papers about the following areas:

      * Information seeking, search and retrieval, including task-based 
and exploratory search

      * Interaction techniques for information retrieval and discovery

      * Online information-seeking behavior, including log analysis of 
search and browsing

      * Modeling and simulation of information interaction

      * Search user interfaces, including those for specialized tasks, 
populations and domains

      * Information use, including measures of use and sensemaking

      * Field and case studies relevant to information retrieval and access

      * User-centered evaluation methods and measures, including 
measures of user experience and performance, experiment and search task 
design, data analysis methods, and usability

      * Context-aware and personalized search, contextual features and
        analysis for information interaction

      * Collaborative information seeking and social search, including 
social utility
        and network analysis for information interaction

      * Information visualization and visual analytics, search result 

      * User-centered work in other areas of information retrieval

Both full and short paper submissions should be in English and formatted 
using the LaTeX or Word style templates from the ACM Website: 
http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates. Submissions 
should be in PDF. Full paper submissions should not exceed 10 pages and 
short paper submissions should not exceed 4 pages. Accepted full and 
short papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library as part of the 
conference proceedings. The system for submitting papers will be made 
available soon.
