Innovative Information and Knowledge Infrastructures – How Do I Find What I Need?

  • Wolfgang Nejdl
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 4243)


L3S research focuses on three key enablers for the European Information Society, namely Knowledge, Information and Learning. The first part of the talk will review this project background context and highlight some of these projects in more detail.

The second part focuses on ”Personal Information Management” as guiding theme for several of these projects. Personal information management infrastructures provide advanced functionalities for accessing information from institutional repositories / digital libraries as well as personal collections, and facilitate knowledge sharing and exchange in work and learning contexts. Federated and peer-to-peer infrastructures, integrated search on metadata and full-text collections, and advanced personalization and ranking algorithms play an important role in this context.
