With the increasing use of dynamic page generation, asynchronous page loading (AJAX) and rich user interaction in the Web, it is possible to capture more information for web usage analysis. While these advances seem a great opportunity to collect more information about web user, the complexity of the usage data also increases. As a result, traditional page-view based web usage mining methods have become insufficient to fully understand web usage behavior. In order to solve the problems with current approaches our framework incorporates semantic knowledge in the usage mining process and produces semantic event patterns from web usage logs. In order to model web usage behavior at a more abstract level, we define the concept of semantic events, event based sessions and frequent event patterns.


Semantic Annotation of Web Services with Lexicon-Based Alignment
Cantürk, Deniz; Karagöz, Pınar (2011-07-04)
As the number of available web services published in registries and on web sites increases, web service discovery becomes a challenging task. One solution to the problem is to use distributed web service search system composed of domain specific sub service discoverers. Using ontology is the most common practice to specify domain knowledge. However, an important problem at this point is the lack of semantic annotation for currently available web services. For this reason, there is a strong need for a mechan...
WaPUPS: Web access pattern extraction under user-defined pattern scoring
Alkan, Oznur Kirmemis; Karagöz, Pınar (2016-04-01)
Extracting patterns from web usage data helps to facilitate better web personalization and web structure readjustment. The classical frequency-based sequence mining techniques consider only the binary occurrences of web pages in sessions that result in the extraction of many patterns that are not informative for users. To handle this problem, utility-based mining technique has emerged, which assigns non-binary values, called utilities, to web pages and calculates pattern utilities accordingly. However, the ...
Improving the prediction of page access by using semantically enhanced clustering
Şen, Erman; Toroslu, İsmail Hakkı; Karagöz, Pınar; Department of Computer Engineering (2014)
There are many parameters that may affect the navigation behaviour of web users. Prediction of the potential next page that may be visited by the web user is important, since this information can be used for prefetching or personalization of the page for that user. One of the successful methods for the determination of the next web page is to construct behaviour models of the users by clustering. The success of clustering is highly correlated with similarity measure that is used for calculating the similari...
Optimization of an online course with web usage mining
Akman, LE; Akkan, B; Baykal, Nazife (2004-02-18)
The huge amount of information existing in the World Wide Web constitutes an ideal environment to implement data mining techniques. Web mining is the mining of web data. There are different applications of web mining: web content mining, web structure mining and web usage mining. In our study we analyzed an online course by web usage mining techniques in order to optimize the navigation paths, the duration of the time spend on each page and the number of visits throughout the semester of the course. Moreove...
Automated Web Services Composition with the Event Calculus
Aydin, Onur; Çiçekli, Fehime Nihan; Cicekli, Ilyas (2007-10-24)
As the web services proliferate and complicate it is becoming an overwhelming job to manually prepare the web service compositions which describe the communication and integration between web services. This paper analyzes the usage of the Event Calculus, which is one of the logical action-effect definition languages, for the automated preparation and execution of web service compositions. In this context, abductive planning capabilities of the Event Calculus are utilized. It is shown that composite process ...
