SearchInFocus: Exploratory Study on Query Logs and Actionable Intelligence

Exploratory Query-log Analysis Workshop
Thursday, October 25, 2012 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM (CEST) Lund, Sweden
Organized by Findwise at the Fourth Swedish Language Technology Conference, October 24-26, 2012, Lund. For more information: SLTC 2012.

Worshop Description
Query logs have been the focus of mostly academic workshops and conferences. At the same time, with the upsurge in high quality search and user-interaction solutions in the enterprise world, companies have a ready access to (very often) large amount of log data. This data, however, whose core is often natural language queries, remains largely unexplored and neglected. The aim of this workshop is to show best practices and standards, new trends, potentials and techniques in order to analyze, draw conclusions, utilize and benefit from the data. The workshop is meant as a forum where people working in the field of Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning could share their ideas with representatives from the Enterprise world on the topic of query-log analysis.
