SIGIR 2006 and Faceted Search

29th annual SIGIR,the ACM's conference on Research & Development on Information Retrieval, is taking place in Seattle. Here is Microsoft's papers presented in SIGIR from 2004-2006.

There is also a workshop on Faceted Search organized by Andrei Z. Broder, Yahoo and Yoelle S. Maarek, Google.

It's good to see the major search engines paying attention to faceted search. If Yahoo and Google and MSN implement faceted search in a clever way they will contribute big time to information retrieval and cut the time spent to find information.
