2nd International Symposium on Information Interaction
Short Title: IIiX 2008

Date: 14-Oct-2008 - 17-Oct-2008
Location: London, United Kingdom
Contact: Mounia Lalmas
Contact Email: mouniadcs.qmul.ac.uk
Meeting URL: http://irsg.bcs.org/iiix2008/

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics

Meeting Description:

The availability of information across media and genres, across
languages, and across modalities constantly increases. How people
access this information is highly dependent on the context of their
interaction and this context is influenced by a range of factors
such as the time, place, and history of interaction, the tasks
motivating the interaction and the technical possibilities of
the information systems. IIiX 2008 will explore the relationships
between the contexts that affect Information Retrieval and
Seeking, how these contexts impact on information behaviour,
and how knowledge of information contexts can help design truly
interactive information systems.

London is one of the world's great cities, and there is plenty to see and to do.
Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Westminster, London's Eye, Hyde Park, Kensington
Gardens and the Royal College of Music are some of the most seen places. The
West End can be regarded as London's entertainment capital. King's Road,
London's most fashionable area for dining out and shopping, can be easily
accessed by Underground.
