Collaborative Information Seeking - Bridging the Gap Between Theory and Practice
Wednesday, October 12, 2011, Full Day 9:00am-5:00pm (seminar fee)

The notion that information seeking is not always a solitary activity, and that people working in collaboration for information intensive tasks should be studied and supported, has become more prevalent in the recent years than ever before. The field of collaborative information seeking is re-emerging, and bringing many researchers and practitioners from various disciplines. We plan to gather a small and motivated set of such participants in a workshop with the theme of “Collaborative Information Seeking: Bridging the Gap Between Theory and Practice”. The workshop will focus on theoretical foundations of collaborative information seeking (CIS) as well as its applications. We believe such a workshop will not only be highly relevant to the ASIST participants, but also very timely in bringing together those who have been working on several CIS issues and those who want to plan their research agenda in this field.
