Title: Research Frameworks for Information Retrieval and User Behaviors 



Information retrieval (IR) is a research topic of longevity. Researchers
have developed important frameworks to observe information-seeking
behaviors in various IR contexts. Dr. Ingwersen's lecture will guide the
audience through the four decades of rich IR research from the
traditional Laboratory IR paradigm to the Integrated Cognitive IR
Research Framework. He presents the selected models and compares them in
contexts to build a 9-dimensional framework, from which he further
presents a research program for the renewed interests in IR research
from new perspectives.
