No April fools from me today but instead just a quick heads up that on Sunday April 13 I’ll be presenting a tutorial at ECIR 2014 in Amsterdam called Designing Search Usability. This is part of a programme of tutorials offered that day, so there are lots to choose from.

The course represents a wholesale revision of my original tutorial, updated to accommodate new concepts and exercises drawn from the book “Designing the Search Experience: the Information Architecture of Discovery”, published by Morgan Kaufmann in December 2012.

For further details and registration, see the ECIR 2014 website. In the meantime, I’ve appended further details below.

Hope to see you there!

Just a quick heads up that on Sunday 28th July I’ll be presenting a tutorial at SIGIR 2013 in Dublin called Designing Search Usability. This is part of a programme of tutorials offered that day, so there are lots more to choose from. Personally I wouldn’t mind attending the Building Test Collections course as well (a topic that always presents particular challenges when addressed from within an commercial environment).

The course represents a wholesale revision of my original tutorial, updated to accommodate new concepts and exercises drawn from the book “Designing the Search Experience: the Information Architecture of Discovery”, published by Morgan Kaufmann in December 2012.

Just a quick heads up that on October 18 I’ll be presenting a tutorial at CILIP in London on Search Usability: Filters and Facets. This is a new course offered as part of the UKeiG’s training programme (so new in fact I haven’t completed it yet 🙂 It builds on my existing Designing the Search Experience course, extending it to include deeper coverage of key topics and a variety of new practicals and group exercises. (It’s also very competitively priced from just £160 per person – contrast that with a rate of ~£500+ per day for this comparable corporate offering!)

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

Hope to see you there!
