The project will involve a programme of qualitative research involving end users and stakeholders from a variety of target sectors. It will also include a competitive analysis of alternative approaches to complex query formulation.

I know the official publicity isn’t due to go out for a little while just yet, but here’s a sneak peek at this year’s lineup for Search Solutions 2014. For those unfamiliar with the event, it is described as:

… a special one-day event dedicated to the latest innovations in web & enterprise search. In contrast to other major industry events, Search Solutions aims to be highly interactive, with attendance strictly limited. The programme includes presentations, panels and keynote talks by influential industry leaders on novel and emerging applications in search and information retrieval.

As last year we’ll be preceding the event with a tutorials day on November 26, which will 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. More on that later! Meanwhile, here is the provisional programme thus far:

I’m pleased to announce the line up for EuroHCIR 2014, which will be held at BCS London on September 13. This event is the fourth HCIR event to be held outside of the US, and as such represents a critical point in the development of the HCIR community in Europe. We’re just in the process of finalizing the programme, which will include 7 presentations, a keynote speaker and an evening social. We also hope to include an interactive group session in the afternoon – more on that later. In the meantime, I’ve appended the full list of accepted papers below. More details on the EuroHCIR website. Hope to see you there!

AIIM: Enterprise Search

I am in the process of creating a bibliography / list of key books & papers on Enterprise Search. I’m ideally looking for peer-reviewed, published works, from either a practitioner or researcher perspective, but am also interested in well-regarded online resources. Here are a few that immediately spring to mind:

  • Martin White, Enterprise Search. O’Reilly Media, 2012
  • Ricardo Baeza-Yates, Berthier Ribeiro-Neto, Modern Information Retrieval. Addison Wesley, 2010. (See Chapter 15)
  • Ron Miller, Unlock the Power of Enterprise Search. EContent Magazine, 2008.
  • David Hawking, Challenges in Enterprise Search, Proceedings of the Australasian Database Conference, 2004.
  • R. Mukherjee and J. Mao, Enterprise search: Tough stuff. Queue, 2(2), 2004.

And there are various online resources, e.g.

In case you missed it last time (since it filled up pretty quickly), there’s another chance to catch my faceted search tutorial in London on May 14. I’ll be presenting a full day course called Search Usability: Filters and Facets, which provides detailed coverage of the key topics along with a variety of new practicals and group exercises.

It’s also very competitively priced from just £180 per person – contrast that with a rate of ~£550 a day for this comparable offering!

For further details and registration, see the UKeIG website. In the meantime, I’ve appended further details below.

Hope to see you there!

ESE 2014

I’m pleased to say that on Monday 28 April I’ll be leading a workshop at Enterprise Search Europe on the subject of Search Interface Design. It’ll be held at the Park Plaza Victoria London, and will consist of a mix of formal presentations, group work and discussion. It’s a chance to discuss with like-minded folks your own challenges in the world of search interface design and usability, and to share ideas, best practices and solutions. I’ve appended a longer abstract below. If you have any queries, just drop me a line.

Hope to see you there!

Fig. 2. Mode network for enterprise search

Around this time last year I gave a talk at AMR 2012 on the topic of Understanding and Designing for Consumer Search Behaviour. Since then I’ve been working with colleagues Joe Lamantia and Stephann Makri on an overview paper that summarises the work and illustrates its application to a well-known social media platform. I’m pleased to say that this paper is now finally available as an extended blog post (below) and as a rather more convenient pdf. As always, comments & feedback welcome 🙂
