CHIIR 2022

Regensburg, Bavaria

Welcome to the seventh ACM SIGIR Conference on Human Information Interaction and Retrieval (CHIIR, pronounced “cheer”).

The conference will take place on 14-18 March, 2022 in virtual Regensburg via Gather.

All non-social events are in the main conference room, the conference hall. It is located way up northwest in the Gather space. All social events take place in the beer garden located way down southeast.


CHIIR provides a forum for the dissemination and discussion of research on the user-centered aspects of information interaction and information retrieval. CHIIR focuses on elements such as human involvement in search activities, and information seeking and use in context. The conference represents a merger of two successful past events: the Information Interaction in Context conference (IIiX) and the Human Computer Information Retrieval symposium (HCIR).

The conference proceedings are available in the ACM Digital Library. The video presentations for the full and perspectives papers can be accessed via the respective YouTube playlist.

Conference Scope and Topics

ACM CHIIR 2022 invites submissions focused on user-centered approaches to the design and evaluation of systems for information access, seeking, retrieval, and use. Contributions may explore improvements to existing systems and interfaces; propose novel theories, models, and systems; or focus on understanding individual and group interactions with information and information systems. CHIIR is a multi-disciplinary research meeting. In addition to studies of interactive systems, information interaction, and retrieval, we encourage submissions on related topics such as human-human information interaction, novel interaction paradigms, new evaluation methods, and related research in a range of communities such as sociology, ethnography, psychology, and human-computer interaction. We welcome submissions using a wide range of quantitative and qualitative research methods. ACM CHIIR operates under the ACM Conference Code of Conduct.
