Title:On the Role of Engagement in Information Seeking Contexts: From Research to Implementation
Author(s):Arapakis, Ioannis; Lopatovska, Irene; O'Brien, Heather L.
Subject(s):information seeking/retrieval
human-computer interaction
Abstract:This workshop will provide a forum for researchers, practitioners and developers interested in user engagement and emotion in the context of information systems design and use. Specifically, we seek to address questions such as “How do we ensure that the measurement of subjective user experiences is robust and scalable?”, “How do we design for engaging and emotionally compelling experiences?”, and “How do we prevent disengagement?” The ability to answer these questions relies upon: a solid conceptual understanding of subjective experiences; robust, scalable approaches to measuring engagement; and the ability to utilize this knowledge in information systems design. This three-part workshop will include: talks by the organizers to ground the workshop’s themes; position paper presentations and design exemplars from attendees, and an interactive session focused on design scenarios and prototyping. The intersection of emotion and engagement with measurement and design in information seeking contexts is a timely issue for the iSchool community.
