Contextualized Attention Metadata: deadline approaching

We are organizing a workshop on Contextualized Attention Metadata: Collecting, Managing and Exploiting of Rich Usage Information, at the CIKM, the ACM Conference on Information and Knowledge Management.

Attention metadata is the term we use for information we collect about what people do with (learning) objects, and in what context. The basic idea is that this kind of information enables us to make interoperable the information that typically gets recorded in log files. In this way, we can use interactions with for instance email, music and web browsing activity to influence the ranking of search results when you consult a learning object repository. I believe that, after metadata about content and activities, this could be an important new kind of metadata to consider, as it could break down barriers between silo’s of logging information. It may also help us to re-claim ownership of this information.

The deadline for papers is 4 July: do consider to submit and do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions!
