resource should do the trick.
Note: The paper is not yet in ResearchIndex.
Btw, many (if not all) of the authors are part of the
Next Generation Information Search project at the Complex Systems
Computation Group. Part of the Helsinki Institute for Information
I haev severa links about NGI work at:

From their web site: "The project will conduct research in the
design, use and interoperability of topic-specific search engines
with the goal of developing an open source prototype of a
distributed, semantic-based search engine. Existing search engines
provide poor foundation for semantic web operations, and US
companies such as Google are becoming monopolies, distorting the
entire information landscape."
p.s. A new issue of D-Lib magazine is online today.
