This item is a Paper in the Data Mining track.
In this paper, we propose a novel framework called SmartMiner for web usage mining problem which uses link information for producing accurate user sessions and frequent navigation patterns. Unlike the simple session concepts in the time and navigation based approaches, where sessions are sequences of web pages requested from the server or viewed in the browser, Smart Miner sessions are set of paths traversed in the web graph that corresponds to users’ navigations among web pages. We have modeled session construction as a new graph problem and utilized a new algorithm, Smart-SRA, to solve this problem efficiently. For the pattern discovery phase, we have developed an efficient version of the Apriori-All technique which uses the structure of web graph to increase the performance. From the experiments that we have performed on both real and simulated data, we have observed that Smart-Miner produces at least 30% more accurate web usage patterns than other approaches including previous session construction methods. We have also studied the effect of having the referrer information in the web server logs to show that different versions of SmartSRA produce similar results. Our another contribution is that we have implemented distributed version of the Smart Miner framework by employing Map/Reduce Paradigm. We conclude that we can efficiently process terabytes of web server logs belonging to multiple web sites by our scalable framework.

About this site
This website has been set up for WWW2009 by Christopher Gutteridge of the University of Southampton, using our EPrints software.
Add your Slides, Posters, Supporting data, whatnots...
If you are presenting a paper or poster and have slides or supporting material you would like to have permentently made public at this website, please email
email@example.com - Include the file(s), a note to say if they are presentations, supporting material or whatnot, and the URL of the paper/poster from this site. eg. http://www2009.eprints.org/128/
It's impractical to add all the workshops at WWW2009 by hand, but if you can provide me with the metadata in a machine readable way, I'll have a go at importing it. If you are good at slinging XML, my ideal import format is visible at http://www2009.eprints.org/import_example.xml
We (Southampton EPrints Project) intend to preserve the files and HTML pages of this site for many years, however we will turn it into flat files for long term preservation. This means that at some point in the months after the conference the search, metadata-export, JSON interface, OAI etc. will be disabled as we "fossilize" the site. Please plan accordingly. Feel free to ask nicely for us to keep the dynamic site online longer if there's a rally good (or cool) use for it...
- WWW2009 EPrints supports OAI 2.0 with a base URL of http://www2009.eprints.org/cgi/oai2
- The JSON URL is http://www2009.eprints.org/cgi/json?callback=function&eprintid=number
To prevent google killing the server by hammering these tools, the /cgi/ URL's are denied to robots.txt - ask Chris if you want an exception made.
Feel free to contact me (Christopher Gutteridge) with any other queries or suggestions. ...Or if you do something cool with the data which we should link to!
These are not directly related to the EPrints set up, but may be of use to delegates.
- Social tool links
- I've put links in the page header to the WWW2009 stuff on flickr, facebook and to a page which will let you watch the #www2009 tag on Twitter. Not really the right place, but not yet made it onto the main conference homepage. Send me any suggestions for new links.
