Call for Papers


Users have started to become centre-stage in research on information access systems but there is still a long way to go to identify and employ information systems that incorporate both state-of-the-art methods for information access, search, navigation as well as human computer interaction and user experience (one just needs to pick a few randomly selected university library catalogues as evidence). Although few interdisciplinary work has sparked a lot of interest in working at the interface between different disciplines, the majority of the researchers in the different fields (i.e., IS, IR, HCI, NLP) remain ignorant of what is going on outside their main topics of interest and that is partly because there is no appropriate forum to bring these ideas together and discuss them.

The general goal of this workshop is to foster collaboration between the different communities and to showcase research that sits at the border between different areas of research.

Submission topics

We invite the submission of position papers as well as novel research papers and posters/demos addressing problems at the interface of IS, IR, HCI and NLP. Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Interactive IR
  • Adaptive IR
  • Recommender Systems
  • Knowledge description and representation
  • Linked Data
  • Novel methods to access to digital libraries
  • User studies
  • User/group profiling
  • Lifelogging
  • Multimedia Information Access
