Objective

The objective of this WG is to identify and critically review the User aspects of next generation search.

Basic concepts

The fields of human computer interaction (HCI) and information retrieval (IR) have both developed innovative techniques to address the challenge of navigating complex information spaces, but their insights have often failed to cross disciplinary borders. This Action aims to run a series of activities to assist the various disciplines involved to interact and put into primary consideration the User Aspects of MUMIA-based next generation search. IR is a longstanding discipline with an important contribution to the development of modern search systems such as web search engines, but several times has failed to take into serious account user aspects of search process.

Human Computer Information Retrieval (HCIR) has emerged in academic research and industry practice to bring together research in the fields of IR and HCI, in order to create new kinds of search systems that depend on continuous human control of the search process making use of:

  • exploratory search, in which users generally combine querying and browsing strategies to foster learning and investigation
  • information retrieval in context (i.e., taking into account aspects of the user or environment that are typically not reflected in a query)
  • interactive information retrieval which can be defined as "the interactive communication processes that occur during the retrieval of information by involving all the major participants in IR, i.e. the user, the intermediary, and the IR system".

Because of its emphasis in using human intelligence in the information retrieval process, HCIR requires different evaluation models one that combines evaluation of the IR and HCI components of the system.

Expected Outcomes

At the end of the Action a generic model for HCIR, which addresses important user aspects in next generation search according to the MUMIA model, may be derived.
