2010 2010 IEEE 26th International Conference on Data Engineering (ICDE 2010)  
When the user clicks on a search result, the clicked result together with its associated content and location concepts are stored in the user's clickthrough data.  ...  As the amount of Web information grows rapidly, search engines must be able to retrieve information according to the user's preference.  ...  Wang-Chien Lee was supported in part by the National Science Foundation under Grant no. IIS-0534343 and CNS-0626709.  ...

A framework for personalizing web search with concept-based user profiles

Kenneth Wai-Ting Leung, Dik Lun Lee, Wilfred Ng, Hing Yuet Fung
2012 ACM Transactions on Internet Technology  
In the framework, an extended set of conceptual preferences was derived for a user based on the concepts extracted from the search results and the clickthrough data.  ...  In this paper, we propose a framework that supports mining a user's conceptual preferences from users' clickthrough data resulted from web search.  ...  However, the same evaluation method cannot be applied to personalized Web search, because Web queries are short and ambiguous.  ...
