Resumen: Human information seeking can be a complex and dynamically evolving process with many facets related to the context of the user. Yet most standard Information Retrieval (IR) test collections have quite short accounts of the user's information need that capture little of this context. This talk discusses our work in creating a test collection designed to facilitate experiments with integrated/aggregated search. This includes a conscious effort to capture pertinent aspects of the information need and the situation in which it arose. The talk presents the collection and discusses its potentials.
