***CALL  for PARTICIPATION***

8th SIKS/Twente Seminar on Searching and Ranking
Explorations in Interactive Retrieval and Information Experience
http://www.information-experience.net/

*Fully sponsored; no registration fee*

Thursday August 29, 2013, 13:00h-16:00h
University of Twente, Human Media Interaction group
Enschede, The Netherlands

*Summary*
The experience of users during the interaction with information systems
(e.g., Google, Yahoo!, and Bing) is not always optimal. How to provide
users with a positive information experience (IX) is still an open
question. A better understanding of how and why people search for
information and what factors determine a positive IX is expected to
contribute to the increased effectiveness of information systems. This
seminar will address the issue from several perspectives. Experimental
research on cognitive aspects of task-based user-system interaction will be
discussed, paradigms for interactive retrieval will be reviewed and
research will be presented into the design, modeling and evaluation of
information access systems, user  interfaces and user interaction.
 Following the seminar, Frans van der Sluis will defend his PhD-thesis,
titled "When Complexity becomes Interesting: An Inquiry into the
Information eXperience".
