'Search!' is the third event in the 2007- 2008 Oxford Internet Surveys
(OxIS) discussion seminars series. Previous events included 'The Links
between social exclusion and digital disengagement', and the 'Social
Networking Conference'.

The different sessions that make up this day long event will discuss the
past, present and future of searching for information and content.
Social science and technological approaches are used to look at this
topic from the perspective of both the producers and the users of
searchable content. There will be four 30 minutes sessions, each with 10
minute presentations and 20 minute discussions of the topics. After two
sessions longer sessions are planned in which broader issues in relation
to research and developments in the area of search will be discussed.
The first discussion session will address current issues and the second
session, after lunch, will focus on what we can say and want to say
about the future of Search
