Call for Proposals: CHIIR 2020

CHIIR 2020, 14-18 March, 2020 • Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

CHIIR 2020 is pleased to invite proposals for satellite workshops to be held in conjunction with the main conference.

CHIIR 2020 workshops will provide a platform for presenting novel ideas and emerging areas in Interactive IR, Information Seeking or Interfaces for Information Access in a less formal and potentially more focused way than the conference itself. Workshop topics typically match those identified in the CHIIR 2020 general call for contributions, but proposals related to other areas of Interactive IR are welcome as well. The format of each workshop is to be determined by the organisers and can be either full-day or half-day. We encourage workshops that foster collaboration, discussion, group problem-solving and community building initiatives. Workshops that only revolve around the presentation of papers in a "mini conference" format are discouraged.

Researchers and practitioners from IR, Information Science or any related discipline are invited to submit proposals for review. The organisers of approved workshops will be expected to define the workshop's focus, gather and review submissions, and decide upon the final program content. At least two organizers are expected to attend the entire workshop.

The tutorial proposal should be a PDF document no more than 4 pages long (including references), submitted by e-mail to and organised as follows:

Format: half/full day
