CIIR Faculty participate in Symposium on Information Interaction and Learning

CIIR professors, James Allan, Negin Rahimi, and Hamed Zamani, participated in the Symposium on Information Interaction and Learning that was held at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on April 25, 2024. The Symposium is the second for the researchers on Project Athena, a National Science Foundation-funded collaborative research project between UNC SILS and UMass Amherst CIIR aimed at developing tools to help people learn while searching for information. In May 2023, the first Learning and Language Technologies Symposium was held at UMass Amherst hosted by the CIIR in collaboration with our Athena partners at UNC.
