HCIR 2010 Accepted Papers

The 4th Workshop on Human-Computer Interaction and Information Retrieval (HCIR 2010) is coming up on August 22 in New Brunswick, NJ, taking place immediately after the Information Interaction in Context conference (IIiX 2010). That’s just a few weeks away!

If you are are interested in attending and haven’t already registered, please let me know as soon as possible via email or Twitter (speaking of which, follow the #hcir2010 hash tag). We’re making the remaining slots available to the community on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Google user experience researcher Dan Russell will be delivering this year’s keynote on “Why is search sometimes easy and sometimes hard? Understanding serendipity and expertise in the mind of the searcher“.
