Next Generation CiteSeer

The Next Generation CiteSeer or CiteSeerx initiative aims at enhancing the existing search engine by redesigning the architecture for increased utility and reliability, expanding the breadth and depth of the collection, providing personalized services to the users by making use of their individual search histories, exploting patterns of citations etc. This is a joint effort between the Penn State University and the University of Arkansas.

Our goals are:

  • To completely classify the CiteSeer collection and provide a mechanism to classify new documents that are added to the collection.
  • Develop a conceptual browsing and retrieval module for citeseer.
  • Design and develop a system for tracking user actions and building conceptual profiles.
  • Provide personalized browsing interfaces for the users.
  • Design and develop a Recommender System using the conceptual user profiles.
