Leading researchers in the field have contributed chapters that synthesize
and provide an overview of past and state-of-the-art research across the
field. The editors have carefully organized the chapters into sub-topics.
Researchers and lecturers will learn about the full range of what has been
done and where the field is headed. Developers will learn which
technique(s) will apply to their particular application, how to build and
evaluate systems, and what performance to expect. An accompanying website
provides links to resources for WSD and a searchable index of the book.
