Personalized query expansion for the web

Paul - Alexandru Chirita, Claudiu S. Firan, Wolfgang Nejdl
2007 Proceedings of the 30th annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '07  
The inherent ambiguity of short keyword queries demands for enhanced methods for Web retrieval.  ...  In this paper we propose to improve such Web queries by expanding them with terms collected from each user's Personal Information Repository, thus implicitly personalizing the search output.  ...  We are grateful to Fabrizio Silvestri from CNR and to Ronny Lempel from IBM for providing us the AltaVista query log.  ...

A Standard Framework for Personalization Via Ontology-Based Query Expansion

Jinan Fiaidhi ., Sabah Mohammed ., Jihad Jaam ., Ahmad Hasnah .
2003 Information Technology Journal  
This article develops a standard framework for designing personalized search engines.  ...  To provide the user with more useful information, we need a system that includes information about the conceptual frame of the queries as well as its keywords.  ...  Search hosting deals with techniques for tailoring a user's query with the Web information space based on personalized information.  ...

Exploiting entities for query expansion

Wladmir Cardoso Brandão
2014 SIGIR Forum  
A substantial fraction of web search queries contain references to entities, such as persons, organizations, and locations.  ...  This significant presence of named entities in queries provides an opportunity for web search engines to improve their understanding of the user's information need.  ...  Abstract A substantial fraction of web search queries contain references to entities, such as persons, organizations, and locations.  ...
