This book offers a helpful starting point in the scattered, rich, and complex body of literature on Mobile Information Retrieval (Mobile IR), reviewing more than 200 papers in nine chapters. Highlighting the most interesting and influential contributions that have appeared in recent years, it particularly focuses on both user interaction ...

We propose a novel approach to address the problem of the recognition of important locations. Our method is organised in two phases: first, a set of candidate stay points is identified by exploiting some state-of-the-art algorithms to filter the GPS-logs, then, the candidate stay points are mapped onto a feature ...

We study whether the tasks currently proposed on crowdsourcing platforms are adequate to mobile devices. We aim at understanding both (i) which crowdsourcing platforms, among the existing ones, are more adequate to mobile devices, and (ii) which kinds of tasks are more adequate to mobile devices. Results of four diversified ...

We address the problem of the categorization of short texts, like those posted by users on social networks and microblogging platforms. We specifically focus on Twitter. Since short texts do not provide sufficient word occurrences, and they often contain abbreviations and acronyms, traditional classification methods such as "Bag-of-Words" have limitations. ...

We present a prototype recommendation system for mobile applications that exploits a rather general description of the user's context. One of the main features of the proposed solution is the proactive and completely automated procedure of querying the apps marketplace, able to retrieve a set of apps and to rank ...

The possibility of using fewer topics in TREC, and in TREC-like initiatives, has been studied recently, with encouraging results: even when decreasing consistently the number of topics (for example, using a topic subset of cardinality only 10, in place of the usual 50) it is possible, at least potentially, to ...

The evaluation of retrieval effectiveness has played and is playing a central role in Information Retrieval (IR). A specific issue is that there are literally dozens (most likely more than one hundred) IR effectiveness metrics, and counting. In this paper we propose an axiomatic approach to IR effectiveness metrics. We ...

We consider the issue of evaluating information retrieval systems on the basis of a limited number of topics. In contrast to statistically-based work on sample sizes, we hypothesize that some topics or topic sets are better than others at predicting true system effectiveness, and that with the right choice of ...

Usually, system effectiveness evaluation in a TREC-like environment is performed on a common set of topics. We show that even when using different topics for different systems, a reliable evaluation can be obtained, and that reliability increases by using appropriate topic selection strategies and metric normalizations.

We discuss the concept of relevance criteria in the context of e-Commerce search. A vast body of research literature describes the beyond-topical criteria used to determine the relevance of the document to the need. We argue that in an e-Commerce scenario there are some differences, and novel and different criteria ...

Web searches from mobile devices such as PDAs and cell phones are becoming increasingly popular. However, the traditional list-based search interface paradigm does not scale well to mobile devices due to their inherent limitations. In this article, we investigate the application of search results clustering, used with some success for ...

We propose and evaluate QuWi (Quality in Wikipedia), a framework for quality control in Wikipedia. We build upon a previous proposal by Mizzaro [11], who proposed a method for substituting and/or complementing peer review in scholarly publishing. Since articles in Wikipedia are never finished, and their authors change continuously, we ...

This paper discusses the issue of evaluation of context-aware retrieval applications. We begin by describing MoBe, a specific architecture that allows automatic download and execution of context-aware applications on mobile devices. In MoBe, the most relevant applications are selected by matching context and application descriptors. Since several alternatives for descriptors ...
