ADAPT's Esraa Ali explores faceted search systems at ICWE conference.

21 May 2021

ADAPT researcher, Esraa Ali, this week presented a paper at the 21st International Conference on Web Engineering (ICWE).  Her paper, titled ‘A Probabilistic Approach to Personalize Type-based Facet Ranking for POI Suggestion’, explored faceted search systems and how personalising the type-based facet or metadata could help refine search queries and quickly narrow results for users.Facets are a way of filtering and help users refine their search options. 

The work was supervised by ADAPT academics Professor Annalina Caputo of DCU, Professor Owen Conlan of Trinity College Dublin, and the late Professor Seamus Lawless of Trinity College Dublin.  A copy of the presentation is available to view on YouTube at
