Can a Workspace Help to Overcome the Query Formulation Problem in Image Retrieval?
We have proposed a novel image retrieval system that incorporates a workspace where users can organise their search results. A task-oriented and usercentred experiment has been devised involving design professionals and several types of realistic search tasks. We study the workspace's effect on two aspects: task conceptualisation and query formulation. A traditional relevance feedback system serves as baseline. The results of this study show that the workspace is more useful with respect to both of the above aspects. The proposed approach leads to a more effective and enjoyable search experience.
