Search as Learning (Dagstuhl Seminar 17092)

Kevyn Collins-Thompson, Preben Hansen, Claudia Hauff, Marc Herbstritt
2017 Dagstuhl Reports  
The motivation for the seminar stems from the fact that modern Web search engines are largely engineered and optimized to fulfill lookup tasks instead of complex search tasks.  ...  The latter though are an essential component of information discovery and learning.  ...  Information Seeking and Information Retrieval use and apply many different kinds of methods. What can we use from cognitive psychology to correlate these methods?  ...
