Call for Proposals: KidRec 2019

3rd International and Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Children & Recommender and Information Retrieval Systems (KidRec) 

What does good look like? 

June 15, 2019 
Co-located with ACM Interaction Design and Children (IDC) Conference 2019 - Boise, Idaho

 

We cordially invite you to submit papers to the KidRec workshops, which be held on June 15, 2019 in Boise, Idaho

 

Objectives:

Children regularly use search and recommendation systems (for education and leisure purposes), yet they are faced with resources that might not be useful for them. The call for reliable, child-friendly information retrieval systems (IRS) has been made many times and the thesis that algorithms of "adult" IRS are not necessarily suitable or fair for children has been proven. However, there is still no clear view on what makes such IRS (and their outputs) good. The focus of this workshop will be on: how to assess and compare IRS for children.

 

Collectively we will answer: Which strategies from theory and practice can be used to achieve useful evaluations? We will work to build on current evaluation frameworks to construct an effective evaluation framework for IRS. We invite researchers in education, child-development, computer scientists, designers, and more who can: discuss diverse methods and techniques for evaluating children IRS, outline a general evaluation framework, and build a community that can explicitly look at issues with existing evaluation methodologies and plan for future research. The goal of this interactive workshop is to share and discuss research and projects that reach beyond classic IRS evaluation.
