"Next Generation Search Engines: Advanced Models for Information

A book edited by Dr. Christophe Jouis (1, 3), Prof. Ismaïl Biskri (2),
Prof. Jean-Gabriel Ganascia (1) and CNRS Research director Magali
Roux (1, 4)
(1) Universite Paris - Sorbonne Nouvelle, France
(2) Universite du Quebec a Trois Rivieres, Quebec, Canada
(3) LIP6 (Laboratoire d’Informatique de Paris 6), UPMC & CNRS,
(4) INIST (Institut de l'Information Scientifique et Technique-CNRS,

To be published by IGI Global:

Scientific and economic organizations are confronted with handling an
abundance of strategic information in their domain activities. One main
challenge is to be able to find the right information quickly. In order to
do so, organizations must master information access: getting relevant
query results that are organized, sorted, and actionable.
Recent technological progress in computer science, Web technologies,
and the constantly evolving information available on the Internet has
drastically changed the landscape of search and access to information.
Current search engines employ advanced techniques involving
machine learning, social networks, and semantic analysis.

Objectives of the Book:
The main goal of this book is to transfer the new research results from
the fields of advanced computer sciences and information science in
order to master the access to information. The readers will be able to
have a better idea of the results in applied research. The achievement
of relevant, organized, sorted and workable answers - to name but a
few - from a search has become a daily need for the enterprises and
organizations, and, to a greater extent, for anyone. It does not consist
of accessing to structural information like in standard databases only;
neither it does consist of searching information strictly by the means of
a combination of key words. It goes far beyond that. The information
sought must be able to be identified by the topics covered by it, that is
to say its textual, audio, video, or graphical content. This is not a new
issue. However, recent technological advances have totally changed
the used techniques. The new Web technologies, the emergence of
Intranet systems and the abundance of information on the Internet
have created the need for efficient search and information access

Target Audience:
This book is intended for scientists and decision-makers who wish to
gain working knowledge about search in order to evaluate available
solutions and to dialogue with software and data providers. It also
targets intranet or Web server designers, developers and
administrators who wish to understand how to integrate search
technology in their applications according to their needs. This book is
further designed for database, groupware applications and document
management systems (EDM) designers, developers and
administrators, as well as libraries or documentation centres directors
who seek a deeper understanding of the tools they use, and how to set
up new information systems. Lastly, this book aims all professionals in
technology or competitive intelligence and, more generally, the
specialists of the information market.

Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

- Semantic Web:
More and more content producers, as a result of the W3C
recommendations on the semantic Web, index their databases with
metadata or taxonomies (ontologies), in order to allow the search
engines to adapt to the semantic analyzers. Currently many algorithms
are being developed for semantic information research systems that do
not impose hit-or-miss keyword searcher on the user.
- Generation of large-scale search engine index
- Video, audio, and graphics indexing
- Query user interface: Controlled natural languages, natural language
query, multilingual search, etc.
- Index Data Structures: Suffix tree, tree, Inverted index, Ngram index,
Term document matrix, etc.
- Multi-sources and multi-formats indexation: Most recent search
engines can index many different information sources, such as:
- FTP servers,
- Files systems,
- Web pages,
- DBMS such as Oracle, Sybase, DB2, SQL Servers and others.
- Document-oriented databases such as Lotus Notes.
- Desktop applications files such as Microsoft Office suite (Word,
PowerPoint), RTF format,
- Adobe's Portable Document Format (PDF)
- PostScript (PS)
- LaTex
- The UseNet archive (NNTP) and other deprecated bulletin board
- XML and derivatives like RSS
- SGML (this is more of a general protocol)

- Emergence of new axis in the Next Generation of Search Engines
- Real-time search
- Local search
- GPS sensitive search
- Mobile search
- Search in the Cloud
- Search using Hadoop
- Map reduce, etc.
- Life Sciences Applications: A special section will be dedicated to
recent developments for life sciences. As the volume of research digital
data increases exponentially, searching information and documents, as
well as links to data sources is becoming a main issue. Exemplary
realizations that made it possible to unlock technological and scientific
bolts will be presented.

Submission Procedure:
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before May
2, 2010, a 2-3 pages chapter proposal clearly explaining the mission
and concerns of his or her proposed chapter. Authors of accepted
proposals will be notified by July 2, 2010 about the status of their
proposals and sent chapter guidelines. Full chapters are expected to
be submitted by November 30, 2010. All submitted chapters will be
reviewed on a double-blind review basis. Contributors may also be
requested to serve as reviewers for this project.

This book is scheduled to be published by IGI Global (formerly Idea
Group Inc.), publisher of the "Information Science Reference" (formerly
Idea Group Reference), “Medical Information Science Reference,” and
“IGI Publishing” imprints. For additional information regarding the
publisher, please visit www.igi-global.com. This publication is
anticipated to be released in 2011.
