On Deck: The Agony & Ecstasy of Discovering More in Search

Scheduled for Monday, June 9th at 4:00 p.m., all SLA Annual Conference attendees are invited to attend this Hot Topic session which will explore the future of effective search methods.

This session will address the following questions:

What are the latest technologies that can help searchers discover relevant content in search results?

How well do data visualization, auto complete, and predicted search suggestions really work?

What else can information professionals and search services do to lead searchers to answers rather than just results?

This session is sponsored by SLA 2014 Platinum Partner Dow Jones, and the expert-panel will be led by Ann Lee, Customer Value Executive for Dow Jones. Her panel will delve into the challenges of developing the interfaces and the back-end technologies that can lead both casual and experienced searchers to added insights from both structured and unstructured data.

The Hot Topic Session will be held in Vancouver Convention Centre West, rooms 114-115. Interested in this session? Mark it on your conference planner and share with your colleagues! Select ‘Add to My SCHED‘ from the session listing.

We look forward to seeing you there.
