Abstract
Tasks and working scenarios on the desktop involve specific context information which is useful for finding relevant documents related to that context. Automating the process of retrieving and generating this context information is important to avoid time-consuming manual annotation not feasible in everyday work. This paper focuses on automatically extracting and integrating contextual information from web pages used in such working scenarios. The key observation is that in such scenarios we often use a set of web sites to get relevant information, implicitly syndicating their data into a coherent scenario specific information space. We show how these data can be extracted automatically from the web pages stored in local browser caches, based on appropriate query wrappers over these pages. These data are then combined into a task specific semantic view, building upon schema integration rules based on a global as view approach and view materialization, and transformed into RDF metadata for enhancing contextualized search on the desktop. We describe both the conceptual framework as well as our current prototype and conclude with a discussion of further research issues.
