***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". *Invited speakers* - Prof. Peter Ingwersen, Royal School of Library and Information Science, Copenhagen, Denmark - Dr. Richard Glassey, Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, UK - Prof. Ian Ruthven, Strathclyde University, Glasgow, UK *Organisers* Frans van der Sluis, Egon L. van den Broek, and Franciska de Jong *Registration* Please register via this link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1eL0IjqXCSQXWJ81eaoc_vpB2HaJ_uiktOLaUSXv_n4o/viewform __________________________________________ - ELSNET mailing list Elsnet-list_(at)_elsnet.org - To manage your subscription go to: https://list.hum.uu.nl/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/elsnet-list
