User-Oriented Relevance Judgment: A Conceptual Model

Zhiwei Chen, Yunjie Xu
Proceedings of the 38th Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences  
The literature on relevance has identified numerous factors affecting such judgment. Taking a cognitive approach, this study focuses on the criteria users employ in making relevance judgment.  ...  Not satisfied with the narrow and technical definition of system relevance, researchers turn to the subjective and situational aspect of this concept. How does a user perceive a document as relevant?  ...  As a result of the inadequacy of a system-or algorithm-oriented perspective on relevance, recent studies have adopted a user-oriented and subjective perspective.  ...

Towards a Theory of Conceptual Modelling [chapter]

Bernhard Thalheim
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Conceptual modelling is a widely applied practice and has led to a large body of knowledge on constructs that might be used for modelling and on methods that might be useful for modelling.  ...  This paper therefore aims in introducing a framework and an approach to a general theory of conceptual modelling. We are however in urgent need of such a theory.  ...  The three dimensions of conceptual modelling must be integrated into a framework that supports the relevant dimension depending on the modelling work progress.  ...
