We invite position papers as well as novel research papers and demos addressing problems at the interface of information retrieval (IR), natural language processing (NLP), human-computer interaction (HCI) and information science (IS). In particular we are looking for:

  • Academic contributions that challenge the paradigm of information access as being a single-shot search request submitted to a Web search engine. Academic papers can range from novel research papers to shorter papers reporting on exciting new work that is not yet mature enough to be presented as a full paper to controversial position papers.
  • Industry contributions that represent case studies or position papers.
  • Demonstrations from both academia and industry.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by members of the program committee and should be 2-5 pages long (in PDF format) following the ACM proceedings format. The submissions do not have to be anonymised. All papers must be submitted electronically by 10 January 2014 17 January 2014 through the EasyChair submission page:
