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 firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm PST on 12 January 2007.
