About this Workshop

As our lives become ever more digital, we face the difficult task of
navigating the complex information spaces we create. The fields of
Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Information Retrieval (IR) have
both developed innovative techniques to address this challenge, but
their insights have to date often failed to cross disciplinary

In this one-day workshop we will explore the advances each domain can
bring to the other. Following the success of the HCIR 2007 workshop,
co-hosted by MIT and Endeca, we are once again bringing together
academics, industrial researchers, and practitioners for a discussion
of this important topic.

This year the workshop is focused on the design, implementation, and
evaluation of search interfaces. We are particularly interested in
interfaces that support complex and exploratory search tasks.

Keynote speaker:  Susan Dumais, Microsoft Research

Researchers and practitioners are invited to present interfaces
(including mockups, prototypes, and other early-stage designs),
research results from user studies of interfaces, and system
demonstrations related to the intersection of Human Computer
Interaction (HCI) and Information Retrieval (IR). The intent of the
workshop is not archival publication, but rather to provide a forum to
build community and to stimulate discussion, new insight, and
experimentation on search interface design. Demonstrations of systems
and prototypes are particularly welcome.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

*         Novel interaction techniques for information retrieval.
*         Modeling and evaluation of interactive information retrieval.
*         Exploratory search and information discovery.
*         Information visualization and visual analytics.
*         Applications of HCI techniques to information retrieval
needs in specific domains.
*         Ethnography and user studies relevant to information
retrieval and access.
*         Scale and efficiency considerations for interactive
information retrieval systems.
*         Relevance feedback and active learning approaches for
information retrieval.

Important Dates

*         Aug 22 - Papers/abstracts due
*         Sep 12 - Decisions to authors
*         Oct 3 -  Final copy due for printing
*         Oct 23 - Workshop date

Contributions will be peer-reviewed by two members of the program
committee. For information on paper submission, see

I'm pleased to inform you of several major additions to the "Student As
Scholar" Blog

[ http://student-as-scholar.blogspot.com/
<http://student-as-scholar.blogspot.com/>  ]


The "Student As Scholar" blog is devoted to documenting relevant
literature that supports the view that : "Undergraduate education should
adopt the "Student as Scholar" Model throughout the curriculum, where
scholar is conceived in terms of an attitude, an intellectual posture,
and a frame of mind derived from the best traditions of an engaged
liberal arts education."

Digital Convergence: Libraries, Archives, and Museums in the  
Information Age

Three Special Issues of Library Quarterly, Archival Science, and  
Museum Management and Curatorship


The editors of Library Quarterly, Archival Science, and Museum  
Management and Curatorship are pleased to announce plans for three  
special issues exploring the shared information needs and challenges  
facing libraries, archives, and museums in the information age; the  
overlapping educational goals of library and information science,  
archival studies, and museum studies programs; and areas of  
convergence for educators and professionals working to meet user needs  
in libraries, archives, and museums.

The resulting three separate issues of Library Quarterly, Archival  
Science, and Museum Management and Curatorship will be published at  
approximately the same time (end of 2009), and all three issues will  
be Guest Edited by Dr. Paul F. Marty, College of Information, Florida  
State University.

The impetus for this project stems from a recent conference, sponsored  
by the IMLS, on the need for information professionals who can  
transcend the traditional boundaries between libraries, archives, and  
museums to meet user needs in the information age (see: http://chips.ci.fsu.edu 

The increased use of and reliance on digital resources has blurred  
traditional distinctions between information organizations, leading to  
a digital convergence of libraries, archives, and museums. In light of  
this convergence, there is a need for more research examining how  
libraries, archives, and museums can collaborate and combine forces to  
better serve their users, many of whom do not clearly distinguish  
among different institutions or the information resources they manage.

We are looking for papers addressing one or more of the following  
three broad questions in ways that cut across the traditional  
distinctions between libraries, archives, and museums:

1. What are the information needs of libraries, archives, and museums  
in the information age, both internally (staff and other  
professionals) and externally (public services)? How can new  
information technologies support information professionals as they  
adapt to meet these needs?

2. What are the roles and responsibilities of information  
professionals in libraries, archives, and museums in the information  
age? What are the knowledge, skills, and abilities they need to  
succeed at their jobs (e.g. intellectual property, information  
management, digital preservation, etc.)?

3. What kinds of educational programs best prepare information  
professionals to meet the needs of libraries, archives, and museums in  
the information age, including degree and non-degree programs? How are  
these programs currently preparing their students, and what potential  
is there for sharing expertise across programs?

While authors may choose to focus primarily on libraries, archives, or  
museums (depending on their interests and expertise), each article  
should attempt to explore issues of convergence across libraries,  
archives, and museums.
