Professor Gareth Jones along with former ADAPT researchers Dr Procheta Sen and Dr Debasis Ganguly, and in conjunction with Professor Mine Yilmaz (UCL U.K), recently organised the First Workshop on Proactive and Agent-Supported Information Retrieval held at 31st ACM International Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM 2022).

This workshop examined the emerging topics of proactive information retrieval and the use of artificial agents to support the search process, particular in settings such as conversational search. The programme featured an engaging keynote titled “Towards Mixed-Initiative Conversational Information Seeking” by Professor Hamed Zamani, University of Massachusetts Amherst, USA and presentation of reviewed paper contributions.

CIKM provides an international forum for presentation and discussion of research on information and knowledge management, as well as recent advances on data and knowledge bases.
