A paper on dealing with terminology evolution in web archives has been accepted in the 12th International Workshop on the Web and Databases (WebDB 2009)

The paper entitled ‘Bridging the Terminology Gap in Web Archive Search’ by Klaus Berberich, Srikanta Bedathur, Mauro Sozio, and Gerhard Weikum has been accepted in the 12th International Workshop on the Web and Databases (WebDB 2009). The paper proposes a method to find query reformulations that paraphrase users’ information needs using past terminology. Such query reformulations are key to retrieving old but highly relevant documents in web archives that were written using now outdated terminology. Klaus Berberich will present the paper on June 28th, 2009 at WebDB 2009, which is held in conjunction with SIGMOD 2009 in Providence (Rhode Island, USA).
