and Dekhil, Mohamed Discovering User Profiles.
In this paper we describe techniques for the discovery and construction of user profiles. Leveraging from the emergent data web, our system addresses the problem of sparseness of user profile information currently faced by both asserted and inferred profile systems. A profile mediator, that dynamically builds the most suitable user profile for a particular service or interaction in real-time, is employed in our prototype implementation.
and Gupta, Ajay Retaining Personal Expression for Social Search.
Web is being extensively used for personal expression, which includes ratings, reviews, recommendations, blogs. This user created content, e.g. book review on Amazon.com, becomes the property of the website, and the user often does not have easy access to it. In some cases, user’s feedback may get averaged with feedback from other users e.g. ratings of a video. We argue that the creator of such content needs to be able to retain (a link to) her created content. We introduce the concept of MEB which is a user controlled store of such retained links. A MEB allows a user to access/share all the reviews she has given on different websites. With this capability users can allow their friends to search through their feedback. Searching through one’s social network allows harnessing the power of social networks where known relationships provide the context & trust necessary to interpret feedback.
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
firstname.lastname@example.org - 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.
