Tony Strix Annual Memorial Lecture 2019

UKeiG has announced the date and topic for the fifth annual Tony Strix Memorial Lecture.

The Tony Kent Strix Award was inaugurated in 1998 by the Institute of Information Scientists. It is now presented by UKeiG in partnership with the International Society for Knowledge Organisation UK (ISKO UK), the Royal Society of Chemistry Chemical Information and Computer Applications Group (RSC CICAG) and the British Computer Society Information Retrieval Specialist Group (BCS IRSG).

The Award is given in recognition of an outstanding practical innovation or achievement in the field of information retrieval.

This year’s lecture – Evaluation of information searching – will be given by the 2018 Tony Strix Award winner Professor Pia Borlund.  Within the IR community, Borlund is known for her innovative contributions to IR user studies, evaluations and test design, including strong, novel methodological contributions to IIR evaluation. In particular, she is recognised for the development of her IIR evaluation model which uniquely employs simulated work task situations.

The Lecture will be held on 29th November 2019 at The Geological Society, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London.  The event is free to attend and early booking is recommended.
