One promising application of intelligent user interfaces (IUIs) is the support of daily tasks for information workers. In such a scenario, users perform various general and domain-specific information generation, processing, and retrieval tasks (e.g., processing data, creating reports, and searching for previous results). Intelligent user interfaces can improve the daily lives of such workers through activities such as task management, including managing the user’s todo list and schedule (Conley and Carpenter, 2007; Myers et al., 2007), as well as summarizing meeting notes (Basu et al., 2008) or recommending tasks for the user to perform (Cosley et al., 2007) or users to collaborate with (Guy et al., 2009).
