Abstract:

This is the fourth and the last year of TREC 2007 Enterprise Track and the second year the University of Twente Database group submitted runs for the expert nding task. In the methods that were used to produce these runs, we mostly rely on the predicting potential of those expertise evidence sources that are publicly available on the Global Web, but not hosted at the website of the organization under study CSIRO. This paper describes the follow-up studies complimentary to our recent research 8 that demonstrated how taking the web factor seriously signicantly improves the performance of expert nding in the enterprise.
