*Information Interaction in Context 2010*


[Papers and posters are due **** April 11 , 2010 *****,]

[Conference August 18-22, 2010]

 The Information Interaction in Context conference (IIiX) explores the
relationships between and within the contexts that affect information
retrieval and information seeking, how these contexts impact information
behavior, and how knowledge of information contexts and behaviors improves
the design of interactive information systems.

The intention of IIiX is to foster an integrated approach to information
access by bringing together members of the research communities in
information seeking behavior (Behavior Track), interactive information
retrieval (Interaction Track), and information retrieval system
design(System Track).
A list of topics of interest can be found at the conference website.

Submissions are sought that integrate two or more of these perspectives.  While
it is understood that one area might be the dominant theme of the
submission, the expectation is that authors will provide an explicit
discussion of how their submission informs at least one other area.  For
example, a submission that primarily discusses system aspects should provide
mention of how the system impacts interaction or behavior.  A paper that
primarily discusses information behavior should discuss implications for
interaction or system design.  Papers that investigate multiple themes
directly are especially welcome.


IIiX encourages the submission of original, high quality research papers
that have not been published previously and are not under review for another
conference or journal. All submissions will be reviewed by an international
program committee. Full papers, describing completed research results,
should be no more than 10 pages in length.

Provocative and interesting poster submissions, describing planned,
in-progress, and late-breaking results are also sought. The aim of the
poster session is to encourage debate, discussion, and future collaboration.
As well as being reviewed according to typical measures of originality and
technical merit, submissions will also be reviewed for their suitability for
an exciting and engaging poster session.

Poster papers should be no more than 4 pages in length. In addition, authors
of accepted posters are expected to include a 1 page image of their posters
(in PDF) as part of their FINAL submissions.  It will be included alongside
the paper in the ACM Digital Library. This image SHOULD NOT be included as
part of the initial submission.

Papers and posters are due April 11, 2010.


A Doctoral Consortium held in conjunction with the main conference provides an
opportunity for doctoral students to present and discuss their research with
senior researchers and other doctoral students in a seminar format.
The Doctoral
Consortium focuses on 1) advising students regarding currentcritical issues
in their research, and 2) making students aware of the strengths and
weaknesses of their research as viewed from different perspectives.

Submissions should include a short thesis description of 1,200-1,500 words
and a statement of support from the applicant’s thesis advisor.  Additional
details (including information about how to submit) can be found at: *
http://www.iiix2010.org/doctoral.php* <http://www.iiix2010.org/doctoral.php>.
Submissions are due on April 30, 2010.


The 4th Annual Workshop on Human-Computer Interaction and Information
Retrieval (HCIR 2010) will be held in conjunction with IIiX 2010. HCIR is
the study of information retrieval (IR) techniques that bring human
intelligence into the search process. It combines research from the fields
of human-computer interaction (HCI) and IR, placing an emphasis on human
involvement in search activities.  Additional details can be found at: *
