Abstract

In an interactive information-seeking environment, it is important to consider more user-centric notion of relevance, which includes motivational and affective relevance. In this poster we introduce the notion of group's affective relevance for collaborative information seeking. We propose a new model for implementing and studying group's affective relevance in information systems that provide support for collaborative information seeking. In addition, we present preliminary results from a laboratory experiment for studying how affective information judgments are related to the performance of a group.
