Abstract

The design and implementation of a session-based search engine ACES (A Contextual Engine for Search) is discussed. The engine incorporates title and summary of clicked web pages and past queries in the same search session to update the query. The engine can also perform the function of recognizing the session boundary using temporal closeness and probabilistic similarity between queries. In the session mode , the search engine uses a relational database management system to store user query history and clickthrough information.
