Personal Information Management: PIM Workshops

A series of workshops on research in Personal Information Management.


Personal information management (PIM) is the practice and study of the activities people perform to acquire, organize, maintain, and retrieve information for everyday use. PIM is a growing area of interest as we all strive for better use of our limited personal resources of time, money, and energy, as well as greater workplace efficiency and productivity. Good research on the topic is being done in several disciplines, including human-computer interaction, database management, information retrieval, and artificial intelligence. This workshop will continue momentum towards building a community of researchers doing PIM-related research.

Upcoming PIM Workshop

The next PIM Workshop will be held at Seattle in February 2012. For more details, please visit the PIM 2012 Workshop pages.

This workshop is part of a meeting held every year and a half on personal information management, organized in connection with related conferences including SIGCHI, SIGIR, and ASIS&T. Each related conference attracts a substantial subset of people conducting PIM-related research.
