ASIS&T 2008 Annual Meeting (AM08 2008)
Columbus, Ohio, October 24-29, 2008


Library and information science (LIS) researchers, though often criticized for not using theoretical frameworks and established methods enough, are beginning to either develop such frameworks and methods or adopt those developed within other fields. However, several questions are still unanswered. This interactive panel will raise questions related to models, theories, and models applicable to image retrieval research for discussion by the audience. This panel follows the discussion started in the companion image research panel, which will have presented current image research projects and framed them in the context of a broader image retrieval research framework. Specific aims of this panel include:

-- To outline the origins and foundational models, theories, and methods used in image research

-- To begin a discussion among researchers interested in all aspects of image research regarding the models, theories, and methods commonly used

-- To discuss the pros and cons of the models, theories, and methods used in image research and to identify the issues/gaps present

SIG VIS is sponsoring this panel.
