Graduate Student Presents Paper at International Conference

Reema Al-Kamha a current PhD student went to Washington D.C. to present her Master's Thesis paper at the prestigious International Workshop on Web Information and Data Management (WIDM 2004). Twenty papers were chosen out of the 61 papers from 20 countries submitted for the conference. Reema's paper, GROUPING SEARCH-ENGINE RETURNED CITATIONS FOR PERSON-NAME QUERIES, was part of the Web Mining and Clustering session, one of seven sessions at the conference. Her paper and research focused on inputting a person's name into a search engine, such as Google, and for the output to cluster all the materials related to one person together. This makes it easier to locate one person's information without having to sift through all the output materials, which could be for several persons that have the same name.
