One of the highlights was the keynote titled "HCIR: Now the Tricky Part" by Gary Marchionini, dean and professor at the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina and author of Information Seeking in Electronic Environments and Information Concepts: From Books to Cyberspace Identities.
Today's HCIR challenges include information-seeker behavior, retrieval and extraction, and individual and group interactions.
For Marchionini, substantial progress in HCIR has been made over the last 30 years (compare today's search experience with that of searches done on a teletype terminal by a librarian while you waited for the results), but there is still much more to learn.
The presentations covered HCIR from myriad angles, starting with a study of dwell time (how long a user remains on a website), which found that users with marginal knowledge of the search subject tended to be less efficient at selecting query terms, whereas those with high domain knowledge spent much more time on content pages.
