    Abstract

    In the situation of information overload we are experiencing today, conventional web search systems taking a one-size-fits-all approach are often not capable of effectively satisfy individual information needs. To improve the quality of web information retrieval, we propose a collaborative personalised search approach that makes an attempt to 'understand' and better satisfy the information needs for each and every searching user. We present a web information retrieval framework called Better Search and Sharing (BESS) that captures user-system interactions, profiles them and induces personal interests that changes over time with an interest-change-driven profiling mechanism that is also extensively used for the co-evaluation of documents found valuable inside a specific search context by users with similar interests.
