Abstract : The CASE MASTER project focused primarily on the development of the InformANTS prototype, a distributed, scalable, and adaptive system that tracks the activities of one or more intelligence analysts, maintains up-to-date models of these analysts' interest, models dynamically changing sets of documents from the web or in InformANTS-enabled wikis, and recommends at any time relevant documents or other analysts to a given user. In the development of the prototype, the team engaged in necessary research in the domains of user modeling, self-organizing data, management of collaboration processes, value of information to users, and information contents in models of documents. The remainder of this report presents our progress towards this goal, which culminated in a successful evaluation of a fully integrated and complex prototype in a National Institute of Standards and Technology exercise in September 2008.
