This workshop aims to stimulate exploratory research in task-based and
aggregated search, and to investigate synergies between these two areas.

Research into task-based search aims to understand the user's current
task and desired outcomes, and how this may provide useful context for
the Information Retrieval (IR) process. The challenge is when and how
to capture and filter this context. Research into aggregated search
(also known as integrated search) addresses the increasingly common IR
paradigm of presenting to the user a result list with information from
heterogeneous document and media types, such as Webpages, user-authored
content, Wikipedia entries, images, locations, etc. The challenge is when
and how to fuse different document and media types, and how to present
results to the user.

A test collection (iSearch) that was designed to facilitate aspects of
task-based and aggregated search is now freely available as part of the
workshop (see Submissions using any
other dataset are welcome.

Full paper and poster submissions are now invited (submission details:
