Call for Papers: 2^nd  Workshop on Collaborative Information Seeking

(in conjunction with CSCW 2010, Savannah, Georgia, February 2010)

- position papers due November 20^th

Although most digital information-seeking tools are designed for solo 
use, studies have shown that groups of many types (e.g., students, 
families, and knowledge workers) have shared information needs that are 
not adequately served by status quo technologies. This workshop seeks 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. This workshop will serve as an opportunity to make 
connections with researchers with diverse backgrounds, to learn about 
participants’ works-in-progress, and to brainstorm on topics of mutual 
interest, such as developing standardized evaluation tasks for 
collaborative information seeking systems and considering how new media 
such as social networking and microblogging tools can play a role in 
collaborative information seeking.

Questions? Contact the workshop organizers, Meredith Ringel Morris 
(MSR), Gene Golovchinksy (FXPAL), and Jeremy Pickens (FXPAL) at 
cscw2010 at fxpal.com <mailto:cscw2010 at fxpal.com>. This workshop follows 
our first Workshop on Collaborative Information Seeking, which took 
place at JCDL 2008 -- the first workshop resulted in a lot of great 
ideas and a special issue of Information Processing and Management on 
CIS, so we are excited to be able to bring this topic to the CSCW venue!
