Workshop in London

On December 2, Evangelos Kanoulas and I organised a workshop on “Practical Issues in Information Access System Evaluation”, intending to collect and discuss industrial voices and experiences on how evaluation proceeds in such contexts. The workshop was well attended — about thirty participatnts from industry, academia, and combinations of the two met for a full day to discuss these issues. The workshop was kindly hosted by the BCS and funded by a contribution from the ELIAS program. A report is forthcoming.
