Call for Papers

First International Symposium on Information Interaction in Context
(IIiX)
18-20 October, 2006, Copenhagen, Denmark
http://www.db.dk/IIiX/

Submission deadline for all contributions May 1, 2006

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

Information is increasingly available across media and genres, across 
languages, and across modalities. 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 are 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 
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://www.db.dk/IIiX/)

Topics of interest include but are not restricted to the following:
• CASE STUDIES, FIELD EXPERIMENTS, SIMULATIONS, ETC. OF
CONTEXT-SENSITIVE INFORMATION SEEKING & RETRIEVAL:
o    Task-based IIR and information behaviour
o    Algorithmic solutions to IIiX
o    Relevance feedback – implicit & explicit – and query modification 
issues
o    Media and genre-dependent applications
o    Cross-media, cross-language and cross-modal approaches
o    Personalized and collaborative information access in context
•CONTEXTUAL INFORMATION INTERACTION THEORY – MODELING CONTEXT e.g.
o    Ontology and knowledge-based IR in context
o    Theoretical tools for IIiX
•EVALUATION AND RESEARCH METHODOLOGIES FOR IIIX
o    Research design
o    Usability evaluation
o    Nature of relevance in contexts
o    Interactive IR and interface issues
o    Measures of performance in context and situation-sensitive 
information access
o    The test-collection challenge
•PLATFORMS AND FRAMEWORKS FOR DOING RESEARCH ON IIIX
o    IR & DB Integration in context
o    Non-content based information seeking and retrieval
o    Document structure in contextual interactive IR

**** IMPORTANT DATES ****
