Adaptive information retrieval - Issues & strategies for Evaluation
This event took place on Wednesday 31 October 2007 at 11:30

A major contributory factor is difficulty of formulating one's information need in a way that takes the user's context and task into account. Personalization and adaptation techniques are proposed to address many such difficulties, however, developments in this area are hampered by the difficulties in evaluating adaptive search systems.
