[InetBib] EXTENDED DEADLINE: Call for Papers: 1st International Workshop on System And User Centered Evaluation Approaches in Interactive Information Retrieval (SAUCE 2016)

EXTENDED DEADLINE: Call for Papers: 1st International Workshop on System And 
User Centered Evaluation Approaches in Interactive Information Retrieval (SAUCE 
co-located with 1st ACM SIGIR Conference on Human Information Interaction and 
Retrieval (CHIIR 2006)
17 March 2016, Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA

Nowadays, IIR continues to increase in complexity: user tasks and needs are 
demanding; data and information systems are rapidly evolving and greatly 
heterogeneous; and the interaction between users and IR systems is much more 
articulated. For example, consider what Web search is today: highly diversified 
results are returned from Web pages, news, social media, image and video 
search, products and more, and all are merged through adaptive strategies 
driven by current and previous user-systems interactions. As a result, 
experimental evaluation needs to appropriately model these evolving tasks, 
needs, data sources and user interactions. An additional challenge pertains to 
the anticipated outcome of IIR research and application. It is no longer 
sufficient to focus solely on precision, recall and satisfaction: successful 
IIR systems must engage, inform, and relate to users, taking into account 
single session and more long-term use and re-use.

To progress current evaluation methodologies and ensure they are able to 
effectively support the development of next generation IIR systems, one of the 
most compelling prospects is to bridge system-oriented and user-oriented 
evaluation methods. Both methodological approaches have their advantages and 
drawbacks: while system-centered methods ensure greater internal validity, they 
may fail to take into account user and contextual factors that influence IIR; 
user-oriented methods may better approximate actual user behavior, affect and 
cognition, but provide less experimental control of independent variables.

The goal of this workshop is to unite system- and user-centered IIR researchers 
for the purposes of:

        • Sharing different user-centered and system-centred research methods, 
measures, and tools in order to foster knowledge exchange;
        • Exploring the addition of user-centered evaluation strategies to 
system-oriented studies, and vice versa; and
        • Initiating collaborations between user- and system-oriented 
researchers to further IIR research.

The workshop will include a keynote with Dr. Eric Wiebe, North Carolina State 
University, and expert panel with Drs. Jaap Kamps, Diane Kelly, and Jacek
