Announcing MICES EU 2024

Join us for a one-day event on e-commerce search! - Berlin, Germany, 12th June

E-commerce search receives a lot of attention nowadays - quite different from 2017 when we started MICES and e-commerce search was much less established than search in other domains.

The e-commerce search community has grown over the years and MICES has become THE European community event to bring together experts of different backgrounds - such as IT, product managers, UX designers, search managers, information retrieval specialists, data scientists, search engine vendors - to discuss challenges, ideas, best practices, and case studies in the e-commerce search domain during this informal one-day event.

We're very excited to announce that MICES will take place in Berlin on 12th of June as an in-person event right after our Berlin Buzzwords partner event.

We invite you to submit a talk to share your insights into e-commerce search with the community (closes 28th April).

Registration will open very soon.


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.


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
  • Tools and processes for 'Searchandizing'
  • 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
