Iterative Query Refinement for Exploratory Search in Distributed Heterogeneous Linked Data

Laurens De Vocht
2015 International Semantic Web Conference  
Formulating a search query is particularly difficult in case of distributed Linked Data sources, because they have many different relationships and vocabularies.  ...  We show that the set of techniques facilitates web applications in fulfilling task-oriented searches more effectively and that user interaction with search results indeed gradually refines search queries  ...  I would like to thank my supervisors: Ruben Verborgh, Erik Mannens and Rik Van de Walle, for their support and the opportunity for the realization of this work.  ...
