I hope a number of you are planning to participate in the HCIR 2010 workshop! Here is a quick update:
- Program Committee chair Rob Capra has assembled a program committee that includes Susan Dumais, Gary Marchionini, and many more.
- Folks who want to participate in the HCIR Challenge should contact me for details! You’ll have to obtain your own copy of The New York Times Annotated Corpus from the Linguistic Data Consortium (thanks to them and to The New York Times for making this data set freely available!). After that, you can roll your own application, or you can bootstrap on the Solr indexer that Tommy Chheng has graciously put together.
More details–particularly about the Challenge–are forthcoming and will be posted on the HCIR Challenge page. Meanwhile, feel free to ask me questions, either publicly here or by email, and I’ll be happy to answer them. Looking forward to seeing many of you this August!
