Abstract (German)

Contextualized Access of Tourism-Related Electronic Resources (CATER) investigates context-aware information retrieval in the tourism domain. It aims to develop a search module for IDIOM’s contextualized information spaces with advanced disambiguation and query refinement, as well as just-in-time information retrieval agents to identify related material automatically. The results will be displayed via a tightly coupled interface - e.g. query term expansion to locate documents and people related Austrian destinations, and project them onto the Google Earth interface.
