MICES 2018

Mix-camp E-commerce Search

When

13th June 2018
Starting at 8:30 am

Join us
for another one-day workshop on E-commerce search

In the search community, e-commerce search has received far less attention and is less established than search in other domains, such as enterprise search or general web search. But it is a very exciting domain with a lot of challenges. That's why we started MICES 2017 as an informal one-day event to bring together experts of different backgrounds - such as IT, product managers, UX designers, search managers, information retrieval specialists, search engine vendors - to discuss challenges, ideas, best practices, and case studies in the e-commerce search domain.

In response to the overwhelmingly positive feedback about MICES 2017, we have decided to organise another event in 2018. Our call for papers and registration have not opened yet, but you can leave your email address to be notified when they start.


Meanwhile you may want to check out Haystack - The search relevance conference (10 & 11 April) - organised by our friends at OpenSource Connections

Format

MICES brings together participants from a variety of backgrounds, all sharing a common interest in e-commerce search. In order to stimulate and facilitate discussion, we will start with scheduled talks in the morning. This will be followed by self-organising sessions: participants are encouraged to initiate discussions about their topics of interest or to give an ad hoc presentation.

Topics

The workshop welcomes all topics related to e-commerce search. We have compiled a list of topics that will probably feature at the workshop. This list is not comprehensive. Participants are welcome to discuss further topics at the workshop.

  • Managing e-commerce search: finding the right process and organisation for it, and how does it change over time?
  • How can we measure and improve search quality for e-commerce?
  • What are the best search relevance models for e-commerce search?
  • Personalised e-commerce search
  • Choosing the right search technology and search management tools
  • From keyword search to virtual shopping assistants: designing the e-commerce search user experience
  • Exploring artificial intelligence, visual and voice search for e-commerce
  • How to deal with poor data quality in e-commerce search
