 SIGCHI 2007 Workshop 29 April 2007, San Jose, CA, USA 

  Important dates
  Submit papers
  CHI 2007

Note: Submissions should be the CHI full paper format not the extended abstract format.

Interested applicants should submit a short (2-4 page) position paper for inclusion in the working notes. Topics include, but not limited to:

  • Novel interfaces and visualizations
  • New interaction models and paradigms
  • Beyond the desktop (mobile/ubiquitous search)
  • Metrics and methodologies for evaluation
  • Evaluations conducted or planned
  • Case studies
  • Experience reports and lessons learned

Position papers will be peer reviewed by a program committee, who will be asked to comment on the appropriateness of the paper for the workshop, the suitability of the described research for presentation at the workshop, and the usefulness of the paper as an aid to discussion among attendees. Authors of accepted position papers will be allowed to attend the workshop. In addition, those papers that align best with the goals of the workshop, or form the best grounds for discussion will be selected for presentation. Presenting authors will be notified well in advance, and asked to prepare a short presentation on their position paper for the workshop.

Workshop activities will be focused on the design and evaluation of exploratory search systems. The day will include a keynote presentation or plenary panel that will cover important issues in exploratory search to insure an even footing for all participants, selected position-paper presentations, group brainstorming, breakout sessions, and open discussion.

Send submissions (in PDF format) or questions to Ryen White via e-mail at ryenw@microsoft.com by 5pm PST on 12 January 2007.
