Simulation of within-session query variations using a text segmentation approach (2011)

Abstract We propose a generative model for automatic query refor- mulations from an initial query using the underlying subtopic structure of top ranked retrieved documents. We address three types of query reformulations a) specialization; b) generalization; and c) drift. To test our model we generate the three reformulation variants starting with selected fields from the TREC-8 topics as the initial queries. We use manual judgments from multiple assessors to calculate the accuracy of the reformulated query variants and observe accuracies of 65%, 82% and 69% respectively for specialization, generalization and drift reformulations.
