The UK electronic information Group (UKeiG) has announced that the winner of the 2020 Tony Kent Strix Memorial Award is Ian Ruthven, Professor of Information Seeking and Retrieval at the Department of Computer and Information Sciences, University of Strathclyde.
Professor Ruthven leads the Strathclyde Information School Research Group (SISRG). SISRG operates across the boundaries between information and computer sciences and has established an international reputation for research excellence.
Note from the Editor – The first time I came across Ian Ruthven was as the Editor, with Diane Kelly, of a collection of papers published in 2011 by Facet Publishing under the title of Interactive Information Seeking, Behaviour and Retrieval. It remains an excellent introduction to these topics.
