When users interact with information retrieval (IR) systems, they leave rich implicit feedback in the form of clicks, mouse movements, etc. This feedback contains valuable information about users and about IR systems. Analyzing and interpreting user interactions and modeling user search behavior has become an important research direction. It enables us to better understand users, perform user simulations, improve search algorithms and build quality metrics.

One week to go: AMS Data #1: Coffee and Data Science

A week from today, we’ll see the launch of a new Amsterdam Data Science event series: AMS Data: Coffee and Data Science.


What is a better way to start your morning than with data and coffee? Amsterdam Data Science is organizing an event on September 25 (9:00 – 12:00pm) to bring the Amsterdam area data science community together. Go ahead and visit the Amsterdam Data Science site for details.

Just under two weeks until the ECIR 2014 short paper deadline

Just under two weeks to go until the ECIR 2014 short paper deadline. Six pages LNCS style.

Short Paper submissions offer researchers an opportunity to present significant work in progress or research that is best communicated in an interactive or graphical format. Each short paper submission that is accepted for ECIR 2014 will be presented in a poster format, in order to provide researchers with an opportunity to obtain direct feedback about their work from a wide audience during the poster session.

What makes a good short paper? Short papers are not full papers squeezed into four pages. They can present smaller or more speculative ideas, they could also be more controversial, they may present new applications of old ideas or the reworking of previous studies. Finally, they should be inspirational and spark some discussion.
