Personal Information Management

Teachers:

Introduction: Personal information management (PIM) is concerned with the study of the strategies, artifacts and technologies to support people in acquiring, organizing, maintaining, retrieving and using personal information such as documents, web pages and email messages for everyday use.

 

Objectifs: Il sera demandé à chaque étudiant de choisir un thème parmis ceux proposés, de lire les articles correspondants, de les synthétiser et finalement de les présenter en fin de séminaire. Un rapport de 4-6 pages synthétisera les lectures et présentera les travaux de recherche du thème choisi. Il sera rédigé en LaTeX, selon le format ACM Strict. Enfin, une synthèse de la "diary study" devra également être rendue, voir ci-dessous.

 

Diary study

Phase 1 : Décrivez votre propre pratique de gestion d'information personnelle sur un des deux types de données à choix : les emails ou les fichiers. Combien utilisez-vous de répertoires ? Que représentent-ils ? Combien ont-ils de niveaux ? Quelles sont vos stratégie de suppression, de classement, de création, de recherche ou de navigation ? Utilisez-vous des programmes particuliers pour vous aider à gérer votre information ? Etes-vous satisfait de cette manière de faire ? Avez-vous des souhaits ? Des craintes ? etc. Cette analyse sert de base pour la deuxième phase. Elle fera l'objet d'un résumé d'une page au maximum.

Phase 2 : Au jour le jour, notez les tâches de gestion d'information personnelle que vous effectuez et demandez-vous si elles sont conformes à la stratégie exposée dans la phase 1. Argumentez les éventuelles réflexions sur votre stratégie, les adaptations, etc. Une synthèse de l'étude sera rendue à la fin du séminaire (2 pages maximum).
