Visual Trend Analytics@Information Science Trends: Search Engines and Information Retrieval

The event “Information Science Trends: Search Engines and Information Retrieval”, organized and hosted by the European Chapter of the Association for Information Science and Technology, focuses on certain research topics introduced by invited speeches from research and industry. The major covered research areas are:

  • Retrieval research on web search engines, web services, professional information services, social media
  • Information seeking behavior
  • Information retrieval
  • Discovery systems
  • People interacting with search systems
  • Searching in the library and other scientific contexts
  • Understanding user behavior

Additionally, they will provide networking space to energetically share ideas and interests from the fields of information science and related disciplines.

At this event Prof. Dr. Nazemi gives a speech on “Visual Trend Analytics in Digital Libraries”, in particular based on the experiences with the own developed Scitics solution. Here he gives an overview about current research actions and challenges toward visual trend analysis, but also on opportunities and benefits for companies. In particular the digitalization challenges a number of small and medium sized enterprises to be aware of modern technologies and trends that revolute the market or impacts the current businesses

The event takes places on April 26, 2019, at the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences in Hamburg, Germany.
