Call for Papers

Second International Symposium on Information Interaction in Context
(IIiX)
14-17 October, 2008, London, UK
http://irsg.bcs.org/iiix2008/

Submission deadline for all contributions: May 1, 2008.

*********************************************************************

The availability of information across media and genres, across
languages, and across modalities constantly increases. How people
access this information is highly dependent on the context of their
interaction and this context is influenced by a range of factors
such as the time, place, and history of interaction, the tasks
motivating the interaction and the technical possibilities of the
information systems. Although the use of information systems is
heavily affected by contextual factors, Information Retrieval and
Seeking research is largely conducted out of context.

IIiX will explore the relationships between the contexts that
affect Information Retrieval and Seeking, how these contexts impact
on information behaviour, and how knowledge of information contexts
can help design truly interactive information systems.

IIiX invites research contributions that approach information
contexts from a broad range of perspectives, such as context
surrounding documents, context influencing seeking, humans and
their tasks, the context of information seekers and providers,
the context of interactive search, and the technical contexts of
information systems.

IIiX encourages the submission of original, high quality research
papers that have not been previously published and are not under
review for another conference or journal, in any of the symposium
topics of interest. All submissions will be reviewed by an
international programme committee, and all accepted research papers
will be published in the symposium proceedings by a major
publisher. Submissions may either be full research papers
(max 5000 words) or research in progress papers (max 2000 words).
Full details on submissions are available on the symposium web page
(http://irsg.bcs.org/iiix2008/).

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to, the following:

* Case studies, field experiments, simulations, etc. of
context-sensitive information seeking & retrieval
* Context-aware retrieval models
* Relevance feedback - implicit & explicit - and query modification
issues for capturing context
* Other approaches to eliciting, identifying and
expressing/capturing contextual information
* Task-based interactive information retrieval and seeking behaviour
* The effect of genre, media, language, modality and structure on
context
* Personalised and collaborative information access in context
* Contextual information interaction theory
* Interactive information retrieval and interface issues
* Nature of relevance in contexts
* Measures of performance in context and situation-sensitive
information access
* Test collections for context-sensitive research
