The doctoral thesis of Tatiana Gossen formulates criteria and guidelines on how to design the user interfaces of search engines for children. In her work, the author identifies the conceptual challenges based on own and previous user studies and addresses the changing characteristics of the users by providing a means of adaptation. Additionally, a vel type of search result visualisation for children with cartoon style characters is developed taking children's preference for visual information into account.
Tatiana Gossen is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Otto-von-Guericke University in Magdeburg.
