The paper “Time Aware Entity Retrieval” co-written by G. Demartini, M. M. Saad Missen, R. Blanco and H. Zaragoza has been presented at CIKM 2010 in Toronto, Canada on 26th - 30th October 2010.
Retrieving entities instead of just documents has become an important task for search engines. In this paper we study entity retrieval for news applications, and in particular the importance of the news trail history (i.e., past related articles) in determining the relevant entities in current articles. This is an important problem in applications that display retrieved entities to the user, together with the news article.
