Finding the boundaries of information resources on the web

Pavel Dmitriev, Carl Lagoze, Boris Suchkov
2005 Special interest tracks and posters of the 14th international conference on World Wide Web - WWW '05  
We propose a unified framework for identifying the boundaries of compound documents, which combines both structural and content features of constituent web pages.  ...  These include segments of web pages or aggregation of web pages into web communities. Using these logical information units has been shown to improve the performance of many web algorithms.  ...  At the other end of the spectrum, algorithms that cluster individual web pages into web communities, have proven effective in numerous applications, such as finding collections of high quality pages on  ...

Successful strategies of older people for finding information

Paul Curzon, Judy Wilson, Gill Whitney
2005 Interacting with computers  
In this paper we use three studies on the information usage of older people to explore the issues surrounding why they favour specific search strategy and technology combinations.  ...  The studies each investigate different aspects of information search in a natural setting and concern tasks relevant to older people as their lives change: finding egovernment information and planning  ...  A real example, based on a proposed ferry journey, was used to produce an objective measure of the availability and ease of finding necessary information from the web and traditional information sources  ...

An Activity-Based Approach towards Development and Use of E-Government Service Ontologies

Ralf Klischewski, Stefan Ukena
2008 Proceedings of the 41st Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS 2008)  
In order to assist bottom-up efforts by administrations annotating their Web resources with adequate metadata, we introduce and follow an activity-based approach towards development and use of ontologies  ...  Specifically, we analyze two scenarios related to e-government services through identifying goals and activities of administrations and their clients, on the basis of which we determine the need for sharing  ...  Acknowledgement This research has been partly supported by the European Commission through funding the Access-eGov project (project ID: FP6-2004-27020).  ...

Isolating web programs in modern browser architectures

Charles Reis, Steven D. Gribble
2009 Proceedings of the fourth ACM european conference on Computer systems - EuroSys '09  
This creates robustness and performance challenges for web browsers. To give users a robust and responsive platform, the browser must identify program boundaries and provide isolation between them.  ...  First, we present abstractions of web programs and program instances, and we show that these abstractions clarify how browser components interact and how appropriate program boundaries can be identified  ...  We would like to specifically acknowledge Darin Fisher from the Chrome team, with whom one of the authors worked closely to develop the site instance isolation policy in Chromium.  ...
