Final Call for Papers:  2nd Workshop on Collaborative Information Seeking

(in conjunction with CSCW 2010, Savannah, Georgia, February 2010)

- position paper deadline: November 20th, 2009

- workshop date: February 7, 2010

- workshop website:

Although most digital information-seeking tools are designed for solo use, studies have shown that groups of many types (e.g., students, families, and knowledge workers) have shared information needs that are not adequately served by status quo technologies. This workshop seeks to bring together researchers with backgrounds in CSCW, social computing, information retrieval, library sciences, and HCI to discuss the research challenges associated with the emerging field of collaborative information seeking. This workshop will serve as an opportunity to make connections with researchers with diverse backgrounds, to learn about participants' works-in-progress, and to brainstorm on topics of mutual interest, such as developing standardized evaluation tasks for collaborative information seeking systems and considering how new media such as social networking and microblogging tools can play a role in collaborative information seeking.

Questions? Contact the workshop organizers, Meredith Ringel Morris (MSR), Gene Golovchinksy (FXPAL), and Jeremy Pickens (FXPAL) at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.  This workshop follows our first Workshop on Collaborative Information Seeking, which took place at JCDL 2008 -- the first workshop resulted in a lot of great ideas and a special issue of Information Processing and Management on CIS, so we are excited to be able to bring this topic to the CSCW venue!
