The workshop on the evaluation of collaborative information retrieval and seeking (ECol) is held in conjunction with the ACM SIGIR Conference on Human Information Interaction & Retrieval (CHIIR) in Oslo, Norway. To make the workshop active and the participant pro-active, we released datasets and tools so as to help researchers contributing to the formalization of evaluation frameworks for challenging collaborative tasks. The workshop is split into two parts. First, a presentation session. Then, the afternoon is devoted to group discussion addressing challenges of evaluating and designing models for social and collaborative search.
