Workshop on Human-Computer Interaction and Information Retrieval by ProQuest


About 90 information science researchers assembled at Google's headquarters in Mountain View, CA, in late October for the fifth Human-Computer Interaction and Information Retrieval (HCIR) workshop. One of the highlights was the keynote titled "HCIR: Now the Tricky Part" by Gary Marchionini, dean and professor, School of Information and Library Science, University of North Carolina, and author, Information Seeking in Electronic Environments and Information Concepts: From Books to Cyberspace Identities. The workshop featured poster sessions and presentations detailing research in various academic laboratories. The workshop organizers also conducted an HCIR Challenge, in which search engine developers were asked to use a set of more than 750,000 documents in the CiteSeerX digital library of scientific literature to answer questions.
