Query Portals

This item is a Paper in the Developers track.

Full text not available from this repository.


Our goal is to enable users to efficiently and effectively search the web for informational queries and browse the content relevant to their queries. We achieve a unique “portal” like functionality for each query by effectively exploiting structured and unstructured content. We exploit existing structured data to identify and return per query a set of highly relevant entities such as people, products, movies, locations. Further, we are able to return additional information about the retrieved entities, such as categories, refined queries, and web sites which provide detailed information for each entity. The combination of search results and structured data creates a rich set of results, for the user to focus on and refine their search.

About this site

This website has been set up for WWW2009 by Christopher Gutteridge of the University of Southampton, using our EPrints software.


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... [this has now happened, this site is now static]
