Made to Measure: A CHIIR 2023 Workshop on Human-centred Metrics for Information Seeking
Abstract: Good measurement is critical in improving effective interactions with information. This workshop seeks out new methods and variations on existing techniques that aim to provide new ways of measuring effective interaction. We encourage both speculative and well-evidenced approaches, as well as reflections on how shortcomings of existing methods and measures may point to potential future approaches. Measurements can also be general, or focused on specific domains, users or tasks. We aim to truly question how CHIIR researchers should be using measurement, and what measures really indicate about real-world behaviour and performance.

IWILDS’23: The 4th International Workshop on Investigating Learning During Web Search
Abstract: Web search is often used as a starting point to learn. When learning by searching the Web, individuals are confronted with an unprecedented amount of information. Successful learning on the Web requires high degrees of self-regulation and should be supported by the adequate design of search, recommendation, and training tools. This creates a highly interdisciplinary research area at the intersection of information retrieval, human-computer interaction, psychology, and educational sciences. Search as Learning (SAL) research examines the relationships between querying, navigation, media consumption behavior, and the learning outcomes during Web search, how they can be measured, predicted, and supported.
