Perspectives on Adaptivity in Information Retrieval Interaction (PAIRI)

(Submission #296)


One of the major challenges facing information retrieval (IR) interactions is adaptivity. Adaptivity in IR interactions requires the IR systems adapting to users’ situations and the users adapting to the systems. System adaption entails dynamic user modeling, effective information architecture and enhanced search features such as search integration and relevance feedback; user adaptation through interactions entails mental model building and modification, knowledge change such as from an anomalous state of knowledge (ASK) towards a coherent state of knowledge (CSK), and learning. The panel proposal is structured as follows. Initially we provide an overview of the panel contents, consisting of four central dimensions of adaptivity in IR interaction. The sequence follows the order of the panelists, i.e., each panelist is the prime mover of a particular dimension. Then, a description of the proposed form and structure of the panel follows with each panelist’s short biography that includes earlier panel experiences as well as some pertinent questions. Each panelist will do a Pecha-Kucha presentation (20x20: 20 slides and 20 seconds per slide) to make the panel communication with the audience as interactive and dynamic as possible. Each presentation will be followed by a lively audience-panel interaction on the dimension. Since the four dimensions overlap to a degree the individual panelists may indeed contribute to the other dimensions as well.
