Our Institute holds 2017 Users’ Information Behavior Research Forum for young scholars at home and abroad[2017-12-18]

  From December 15th to 17th, the 2017 Users 'Information Behavior Research Forum hosted by the Institute attracted more than 120 participants from the United States, Australia, and China. The forum was initiated by Professor Zhuqinghua. Professor Sunjianjun attended and delivered a speech.

The Forum mainly consisted of round table discussion and thematic report. During the discussion, the young scholars participating in the meeting respectively shared their own research experiences and views on the research content, methods. The in-depth discussion of the scholars at the conference enriched the understanding of teachers and students on the "user information behavior study" in the field of library and intelligence, and provided directions and guidelines for future research in this field.

Professor Zhuqinghua and Professor Keqing presided two thematic presentations separately. Young scholars from the University of Texas Austin, South Australia University, Wuhan University, Peking University, Nanjing University, Nanjing University of Technology and other universities have made nine thematic reports on their current research. The topic of the report covered information behavior research issues such as wearable equipment, cross-equipment retrieval, social networking sites, health communication, etc.. It involves the research methods and means of intelligent devices such as large data analysis, web log topic mining, eye-moving tracking, clickflow data analysis, and control experiments.

This forum is one of the academic exchanges projects for the construction of first-class disciplines in library information and archives management under the background of "double-first-class" construction in 2017. The forum aims to integrate multi-disciplinary and cross-domain perspectives such as intelligence science, management science, computer science, health Informatics, and communication, which can explore the frontier research of user information behavior in the environment of "cloud shifting intelligence", and help the International development of the first-class subject research of library information and archives management in our school.
