Abstract

Although personalized information retrieval and access has been regarded as effective means to diminish the problem of information overload in the time critical, data intensive, distributed and dynamic environments, its implementation is extremely difficult due to the openness of users’ information needs, which are changing over time under different situations, scenarios, personal preferences, some of which cannot be predicted. Therefore, centralized system design principle that dominates the system design in the field is not feasible due to its limited adaptability to deal with dynamic changing environments. In this paper we present our ongoing research regarding a plug-and-play service architecture for personalized, situation aware information retrieval and access services, which offers a new way of thinking about the retrieval of personalized information for time critical applications.
