The aim of the project is to analyze, experiment and develop smart, interactive and multilingual text mining technologies as a key part of the next generation of search engines and textual analysis, systems capable of finding “the need behind the query”. This new generation will offer specialized services and interfaces depending on the domain and the type of information need. Moreover, it will integrate document search (Web pages), multimedia search (images, audio, video), semi-structured information search and search in specific domains. The new search engines will be able to find and organize information, and not just to produce ordered lists of Web pages.
