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!

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!

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 🙂
