Information Retrieval and Human Computer Interaction

a one day workshop in Glasgow held on 17 September 1996

Glasgow Interactive Systems Truc
Computing Science
University of Glasgow

A one day workshop on many issues placed near or at the junction of IR and HCI. This meeting was hosted in Glasgow University by two BCS specialist groups and attracted a large audience for a very successful workshop. A full programme is included below.

The proceedings are available in compressed postscript (.ps.z) format (744K expanding to 8M) or HTML.

The workshop has led to a special issue of Interacting with Computers on Human Computer Interaction and Information Retrieval.

The workshop was jointly organised by the British HCI Group and the British Computer Society's Information Retrieval Specialist Group.
