Abstract

Interactive Information Retrieval experiments have two main requirements. They need to follow a workflow that takes the participant through the individual steps of the experiment and they need to show the user an interface to interact with. Both of these aspects look like they should lend themselves to re-use. This paper analyses the experience of developing and re-using software for both of these aspects across a time period of approximately five years. The main conclusion is that re-use of workflow management software should be possible, but for software for interface creation the question of whether re-use is possible is still open.
