CHIIR provides 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).
Digital information permeates all aspects of our lives, and information systems strive to cater to our needs and anticipate our desires in both physical and virtual environments. The demand for effective, responsible, and human-centred information systems design has never been greater, as the range of applications continues to grow and underlying technologies are increasingly shaped by AI methods. The CHIIR conference, with its cross-cutting commitments to information retrieval, human information interaction, and design is a premier venue for research in these areas.
