CFP: 2nd Workshop on Collaborative Information Seeking


Jeremy and I have been blogging about collaborative search for a while, and it is our pleasure to announce that Merrie Morris and we are organizing another workshop on Collaborative Information Seeking. The first workshop was held in 2008 in conjunction with the JCDL 2008 conference. We had a many interesting presentations and a lot of discussion about systems, algorithms, and evaluation.You can find the proceedings from the workshop on (metadata and papers) and on the workshop web site.

It’s time to revisit this topic, this time in conjunction with the CSCW 2010 conference. The workshop call for participation is here. Our goal is

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.

To participate, please submit a 2-4 page position paper in the ACM format by November 20th. The workshop will take place in February, in Savannah, Georgia. Hope to see you there!
