Conference program: http://iiix2012.cs.ru.nl/wordpress/?page_id=227

The Information Interaction in Context conference ( IIiX ) explores the 
relationships between and within the contexts that affect information 
retrieval and information seeking, how these contexts impact information 
behavior, and how knowledge of information contexts and behaviors 
improves the design of interactive information systems.

The intention of IIiX is to foster an integrated approach to information 
access by bringing together members of the research communities in 
information seeking behavior, (Behavior Track), user interface design 
for IR systems (Interface Track), interactive IR (Interaction Track), 
and IR system design (System Track).

The IIiX 2012 program includes three keynote speakers: Peter Ingwersen, 
Diane Kelly and Daniel Russell, 25 full papers , 22 poster papers and 7 
doctoral consortium Participants.

IIiX 2012 is organized by Radboud university Nijmegen and the University 
of Amsterdam in cooperation with the ACM and ACM SIGIR.

The 2th European Workshop on Human-Computer Interaction and Information 
Retrieval  will be held in conjunction with IIiX 2012. HCIR is the study 
of information retrieval (IR) techniques that bring human intelligence 
into the search process. It combines research from the fields of 
human-computer interaction (HCI) and IR, placing an emphasis on human 
involvement in search activities. Additional details can be found at:

2nd Erasmus Intensive Program on 'Information Foraging'


This summer school has the form of an intensive course given by 12 
lecturers that are experts in their domain.

The goal of the course is to introduce students at master and early PhD 
level to theoretical models and technology related to all facets of 
interaction with information in an information seeking context.

The lectures are grouped in 4 themes: Information Seeking Behaviour, 
Interaction, Context and Personalized Search, exploiting explicit and 
implicit social annotations. Additional details and registration  
information can be found at: http://www.ru.nl/is/ifl/education/ip-2012/
