Innovative Information and Knowledge Infrastructures
This event took place on Wednesday 07 December 2005 at 12:30

L3S research focuses on three key enablers for the European Information Society, namely Knowledge, Information and Learning, and combines this with a strong commitment to service to its affiliated universities in the field of eLearning. The first part of the talk will review my project background in this context and highlight some of the projects currently running at L3S under my supervision.

The second part focuses on "Personal Information Management" as guiding theme for several of these projects. Personal information management infrastructures provide advanced functionalities for accessing information from institutional repositories / digital libraries as well as personal collections, and facilitate knowledge sharing and exchange in work and learning contexts. Federated and peer-to-peer infrastructures, integrated search on metadata and full-text collections, and advanced personalization and ranking algorithms play an important role in this context.
