2021 Biennial Conference on Design of Experimental Search & Information Retrieval Systems  
This abstract presents an Information Retrieval framework that personalises results based on the user's knowledge and search goals. The framework utilises the content of the pages visited by the user to represent his/her knowledge, and a set of questions/statements the user wishes to answer to represent his/her search goals. In the absence of related datasets and benchmarks, we propose a methodology to evaluate the framework.
