Mobile Multi-domain Search over Structured Web Data
So far, web search applications have been primarily designed for access through personal computers, because this represented by far the most widespread usage scenario. However, the wider and wider adoption of web-enabled smartphones, tablets and embedded devices are opening completely new scenarios for applying search technologies in everyday life of people. In this paper we propose an approach and a concrete architecture for optimizing exploratory search tasks on mobile devices. Our claim is that new search paradigms may let users conduct the search on small devices without being hampered by the limitations of the devices themselves. Even better, appropriate solutions may also exploit the advantages of such devices for further improving the overall search experience.
