The Annual Lecture series is sponsored by Google.
The Strix Award is presented in memory of Dr Tony Kent, a past Fellow of the Institute of Information Scientists, who died in 1997. Tony Kent made a major contribution to the development of information science and information services both in the UK and internationally, particularly in the field of chemistry. The Award is given in recognition of an outstanding contribution to the field of information retrieval in its widest sense.
The name 'Strix' was chosen to reflect Tony's interest in ornithology, and as the name of the last and most successful information retrieval packages that he created. The Award is managed by an Executive Committee including UKeiG and ISKO-UK in partnership with the Chemical Information and Computer Applications Group of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC CICAG) and the British Computer Society Information Retrieval Specialist Group (BCS IRSG).
