Beyond word relations

View publication


Many information retrieval systems identify documents or provide a document visualization based on analysis of a particular relationship among documents - that of similar topical content. But there may be layers of other less apparent and less traditional relationships that are useful to the user. Exploring this other information was the subject of this workshop, with a focus on identifying new non-traditional relationships. An initial taxonomy was introduced and fleshed out during the workshop.
