iBingo features two or more users performing collaborative
information seeking tasks, using mobile devices, Apple iPod
iTouch in our case. The novelty in our work is that the
system, called iBingo, mediates the collaborative searches
among the users and performs a realtime division of labour
among co-searchers so users are presented with documents
which are both unique and tailored to the individual. This
enables each user to explore unique subsets of the retrieved
information space. We demonstrate iBingo mobile collabo-
rative search on a video collection from TRECVid 2007.
