Personal Information Management — PIM 2012



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.

PIM 2012 — a CSCW 2012 Workshop

PIM 2012 is affiliated with CSCW 2012, the Conference on Computer-Supported Collaborative Work, held in Seattle (Bellevue) in February 2012. Any general information related to logictics, location, and registration can be found directly at the CSCW 2012 web site.

Past PIM Workshops

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. The upcoming CSCW conference in Seattle, WA, USA represents an excellent opportunity to continue the existing momentum behind the topic and to engage a larger community of people involved in information science research that relates directly to PIM. Information about the previous three PIM meetings can be found at the following Web sites:
