IRSG Supported Events
Wednesday 28th November, Covent Garden, London
Search Solutions now includes a Tutorial Programme to offer conference attendees and local participants a stimulating and informative selection of practical training courses reflecting current topics and state-of-the-art methods in search and information retrieval.
These tutorials will be presented by subject matter experts and will reflect the high academic and professional standards of the Search Solutions conference series.
Applications of Text Processing (Dr. Michael Oakes, University of Sunderland)
The tutorial plans to cover two important applications of text processing other than core Information Retrieval.
This tutorial explores the fundamental concepts and principles of User-Centred Design for information search and discovery and demonstrates how to apply them in a range of practical contexts. Participants will learn how to differentiate between various types of search behaviour, develop an understanding of the key dimensions within the search user experience, and discover how to apply UI design patterns to commercial search applications. The session concludes with a group exercise applying these skills to a range of practical design challenges. Further details
Registration fees (including VAT at 20%) are £90 per tutorial.
