A Semantic Perspective on Query Log Analysis

We present our views on the CLEF log file analysis task. We argue for a task definition that focuses on the semantic enrichment of query logs. In addition, we discuss how additional information about the context in which queries are being made could further our understanding of users’ information seeking and how to better facilitate this process.
