Information Interaction in Context 2010
Doctoral Consortium

[Submissions to Doctoral Consortium are due **** April 30 , 2010 *****] 
[Conference August 18-22, 2010]

The Information Interaction in Context conference (IIiX) explores the relationships between and within the contexts that affect information retrieval and information seeking, how these contexts impact information behavior, and how knowledge of information contexts and behaviors improves the design of interactive information systems.

The intention of IIiX is to foster an integrated approach to information access by bringing together members of the research communities in information seeking behavior (Behavior Track), interactive information retrieval (Interaction Track), and information retrieval system design (System Track). A list of topics of interest can be found at the conference website.

A Doctoral Consortium held in conjunction with the main conference provides an opportunity for doctoral students to present and discuss their research with senior researchers and other doctoral students in a seminar format. The Doctoral Consortium focuses on 1) advising students regarding current critical issues in their research, and 2) making students aware of the strengths and weaknesses of their research as viewed from different perspectives.

Submissions should include a short thesis description of 1,200-1,500 words and a statement of support from the applicant’s thesis advisor. Additional details (including information about how to submit) can be found at: http://www.iiix2010.org/doctoral-consortium. Submissions are due on April 30, 2010.
